Moved over a year ago from upstate NY to SE Michigan and had to leave my collection of over a 100 different houseplants behind. Actually, I gave them all away. Now after quite a bit of house repairs at the new place, it's finally safe enough(roof repaired, broken windows fixed etc) for me to grow plants again. If I could just get some cuttings from any type of house plants(wandering Jews, spider plants, mother of thousands, ANYTHING!) I'd be eternally grateful and would be more than ready to send you in return cuttings later on for a particular plant or plants you might want and that I would then have grown large enough to take cuttings from. I live upstairs in my duplex so I get loads of sunlight. Had lived downstairs initially and nothing seemed to grow I had so little sun. I already have a good number of pots and potting soil to give anything you might send me a good home.Please! Please! Please! I'm rapidly approaching 70 and need more life around me to encourage me to pass 70 to get to 80. Thanks for reading. Crossing Fingers!

Hi @zenbuddha77. I would be happy to send you some cuttings when the weather gets warmer. Right now it is still too cold to mail plants from here.

Me too, I have lots, but I think it is a bit early to mail them they would get chilled, remind me in a few months, I bet I could cram a lot into a small USPS flat rate box!
