|If you have plants to trade, please post your haves and wants in this thread.|
If you want to arrange trades before hand, please send a private c-mail to that person so it doesn't bog down the thread.

|I doubt anyone will see this, but I'd sure like "shrubby false buttonweed" Spermacoce verticillata and "partridge pea," Chamaecrista fasciculata, if anyone has any. I think I remember Jeremy mentioning it a long while back on DG...|
Any trading going on over on DG?

The Partridge Peas have come and gone now, but I may be able to round up some seeds for you. I'll take a look this afternoon when I am digging plants.

|Thanks, Molly. I just read that they are a deterrent to mole crickets and though I don't know if I have them, it's suggested to plant those plants preventatively.|

Actually, they are grown as a food source for the Larra Wasp which hunts out the mole crickets underground and stings them to paralyze them. Then they lay their eggs on them and the larva feed off them.

|Right, that's what I read, Jan- I just jumped to the final product...one egg per cricket and by the time the wasp is an adult, the cricket is dead, right?|
I don't absorb enough....need to wring out the sponge. LOL
