Hi,
I hoping to trade Christmas Cactus/Schlumbergera or Spring Cactus/Rhipsalidopsis
Looking for Reds & Oranges, as well as Sunburst, Starbrite, Lemonade, Gold Fever, etc.
I'd love to get the different colored ones, if anyone has any to share. I'd really love to
find (and be glad to pay for) any color Aspen.

I have some mixed colors that will be ready for cuttings soon. Sadly, last year, I got cuttings
from friends, but put them all in the same pot, Don't know which ones are which now.....
Pretty Peach/white Don't know name?? is blooming now.

If you have extra orchids, I'd love to trade as well, I purchased some
rough looking left overs from the store, and they are coming along
quite nicely.

I also have these to trade:
Tiger Lily
Dwarf Purple Water Iris
Yellow Flag Iris
Wisteria
Chameleon Plants
Goutweed
some grasses
and a huge jungle of gardens, sadly
the more aggressive plants took over.

Jade Plants
Joseph's Coat

Thanks in advance.......

Hi there, and welcome to the site.
I can't say I have any of my Christmas cactus labeled so I'm no good for that one. Although if we find something else to trade we could add in a few cuttings just for the fun of it.
I am curious what plant zone you're in, or where you live? I may have some interesting plants to trade you if you're not in too cold a zone. I'm in 8b/9a so I don't get much frost here. I also wanted to give you some acorns to play with. You can either buy some icons or I'd suggest joining the June raffle, the prizes are really cool.

Hi DomehomeDee,

Thanks for the Welcome.....and the desire to do some trading..
That sounds like so much fun... I'm not familiar with the Acorns,
but sounds like fun too....

I'm in Maryland Zone 7A. We do get freeze's here.. Have to
have tropical's in typically, by Thanksgiving...

Alisa,

Your Cactus are lovely... I think I may have the first one, in my
mixed up basket of cuttings. Well I know I have a very very old
variety that's a vivid Fuchsia and white one anyway. I'll have
to separate that basket of Christmas cactus... There is like
four different ones in there.

I also have a peach, but it's a beach and white color. The
solid peach color is nice.

I have the White Spring Cactus, think it's one of my fav's.

I'll have to start taking pictures... Does keeps their beauty
fresh in your mind. Smiling
