I have enough cuttings planted in a long planter to plant about
5 or 6 pots with four or five cuttings in each. I only want postage.
Send me a Treemail if you are interested. The blooms are the size
of a large dinner plate.

Hi, I am babysitting one of these during my daughter's moving. The blooms are lovely! My question is I would like to take cutting to share. What did you put them in?

Thanks,

The Starfish plant is really interesting with very pretty, large (but stinky) blooms. Scroll down this page in the database for lots of photo's: Starfish Plant (Stapelia gigantea)

My goodness, the post office really performed on this package!
The clerk promised a Thursday delivery, and they are a day ahead
of schedule!!!!!
I'm so glad that you are pleased with the plants and that they didn't
suffer in transit.
I hope we can trade again. Cheers for ATP!!!!!! They find the right
home for excess plants (really-we can't just compost them).

Good morning Louise, I'd be interested in some come spring if you still have some available. The weather is cold here and I don't want to risk them freezing. Please let me know. Thank you! Smiling

Audrie,
Thanks for the request. I still have a few of the cuttings that I took from
the mother plant before bringing it in for the winter. They are the left
overs and need TLC. I'll see what I can rescue and if they look like they
are up and going, I'll get back with you. If they don't show signs of growth
by spring, I'll find some new pieces of the big plant when I put it outside
again. In about 3 1/2 months, I'll move many pots out of the garden
room into the sunshine. Happy time!!!!!!

Hello Louise,
Sounds perfect! I'll wait to hear from you come spring! Several of my plants are looking forward to the spring outdoor weather too. Every time I bring them inside for winter they look terrible. As if to tell me they're mad they had to come inside. Big Grin Thanks again! Have a wonderful week!

Audrie
