My Agave vilmoriniana just had hundreds of bulbils. I put them in trays with some soil and they are starting to root. This is a nice Agave, not as pokey as most of them. Good in zones 7b to 11.
Would like to trade for ? But I've been known to share for postage and a thank-you.

I'd love to try 1 of them would you like to try any Fletcher's pink vitex and/or Shoal Creek vitex seeds for one. I would offer you some fig or pomegranate cuttings but my plant's are not dormant yet. Besides those the only other thing I have that will grow in your area is Adam's needle yucca if your are interested I have a few small plants I can share for some. Thanks and I look forward to hearing back from you.

Sure I'll send you one but wouldn't 100 be better? I think the final count is going to be like 500 bulbils on this one stalk !!! I'd love to try some of your Vitex seeds, a few of both would be great. I grow a lot from seed so I'm always looking for new plants. Send me your address and I'll send a couple bulbils to ensure your success.
Thanks, Dee

Thank you so much, please shoot me a tree mail if you ever get any other hardy agave bulbils or offsets you can share. In a month or so many of my plants will be going dormant so I'll have cuttings and plants I can share with you in return. Thank You!

You know I have a slew of Agave Parryi truncata babies and I've seen them hardy down to like 5b. I also have variegated Agave Lophantha (center stripe Agave), they may or may not make it in 7b, they say 8a on most sites. However they are a "small" Agave and could be potted or maybe just planted under a tree to keep it a little warmer in winter, I have a small one and it would be worth a try as they are so cool. I'd love some cuttings, it's always worth a try. I have several plants in my garden from cuttings.

I'm interested! I don't have any fancy plants, just usual houseplants (ZZ, snake, croton petra, dracaena, elephant ear, some succulents) but I pay the postage of course.

I'm interested. Just joined today so am still learning the ways of this forum. What are you looking at for a trade?
