How do I should I put it his in the databases and in my plant list. Over winter I found some new babies! Can you trade these plants? And one plant is a fair trade? How do you package for trading? Thanks for your support and help!

Hello Alisa here is the link to the entry but have you entered other plants into the database? If not ask and I'll walk you through the steps, once you do it, it is easy but at first can be confusing.
Your plant is Sempervivum 'Fire Dragon' here is the database entry
Hen and Chicks (Sempervivum 'Fire Dragon')

Hope this helps I tip my hat to you.

To answer your other question for me I discuss the trade deals with each person I am trading with. So on the main chat thread you may want to post that you have something to trade is anyone interested, then you can discuss with someone using treemail. I usually send rooted offsets, more than one usually because one can die or bloom, so I like sending 2 or 3, that way the person you are sending them to has a backup. But it is an individual preference.
I use a small brown paper bag, some people wrap each chick in a piece of paper towel, I just put it into the bag, write the name on the outside. When I ship these I always ship priority mail to ensure that it reaches the person in no more than 3 days.
I have a question for you, I read that you grow all plants indoors, are you including semps? How do they do for you inside? I haven't had luck growing mine inside
Thanks

Hurray! I had this semps on my outside deck. Facing east. Lightly protected. I'm 500 feet in elevation, too! I was surprised to the plant grow.
