Happy to entertain any trade proposal, but do have a lot of plants already. Also happy to send for postage, full box of either small (3-4 smaller rosettes) or medium USPS flat rate (enough to instantly start 2 full pots, multiple mature rosettes with stolons attached.)

This potted one started forming these flower stalks around the end of the year, which take a few weeks to get to blooming stage. They open periodically, not every day. Smells really good! This year, I haven't broken them yet, and am still enjoying the blooms some days. This pic is from 8/4/13.

The plants for postage/trade are actually much more robust, having escape a pot at DH's Mom's house, so up until recently, were growing in the ground. Before I knew she had those that needed new homes, I cut off most of the stolons of the potted one pictured to send to a friend. They will grow back very quickly, a very fast-growing plant for mostly shade if/while outside, some direct light while inside for winter is what makes the flowers form.

Was late getting to a swap yesterday, so have plants packaged as if they were going to be mailed, ready to send to anyone interested.

Hi Kandw40, and welcome to ATP! Later this fall I will get into trading again. I've just downsized plants as much as possible because we moved a couple weeks ago, and the original overflow of these plants didn't last long after posting this. I'll post something this fall listing those that have grown too much to fit back in the house, a list on which this plant should definitely be.

Hope the plants I sent to people are doing well!
