Post #7081841

It's time for me to harvest the baby plantlets from my Donkey ears plant (Kalanchoe gastonis-bonnieri) and I need some kind folks to give them a good home or they will go in the trash (OH NO!!!). These plants are so easy to grow, indoors or outdoors in temperate climates. I probably have over 20 babies, specify how many you want.

Will send them for postage, or if you have anything on my trade list. Heck, if you see more stuff on my list that you want please let me know - I am over-run with extra plants and seeds that I need to move out of here!

Hmmmm... I will be sending them in a bubble envelope (a small one). They weigh next to nothing. Not sure how much that is... but I am happy to mail them with a SASE inside and you can just send back however much it was. Can't imagine it being much!

Sure thing, there's plenty to spare.

Haven't set a date yet... I was hoping for next fall but we are going to try and buy a house before the $8,000 tax credit expires in April. Don't think I can buy a house and afford a wedding in the same year! So perhaps sometime in March 2011, when all the azaleas are blooming :)

Oooh these babies do not like snow. We had about 3-4 inches but it didn't stick for long. However temps dropped below freezing (I think the lowest it got was 30), and killed most of the plants in my garden. I was at work and didn't get home till 8 pm, so I didn't get a chance to cover anything or bring them in. They are wilting piles of mush now- as are all my succulent plants. BAH. I hope they come back when it warms up again, or I will be looking for some babies when all yalls plants reproduce next year :)

It's weird because last year when it snowed they weren't affected at all. I think it dropped below freezing for a longer time this year.

I found 2 little babies under all the leaves that look ok so I brought them in and I am nursing them to life LOL. Hang on babies!! I figure I sent out so many babies this year that there will plenty to go around this time next year if I need them. Glad I posted here and didn't just throw them out like I used to. These plants were going to die anyway after they bloomed, so its no big deal. I was just hoping to get a few more rounds of babies from them first - they really put out a lot of babies in the end stages of their life.

For now, just pray my 2 little ones survive.

Don't give up on the plants-- some may come back from the roots-- I have had 2 heater failures and resulting freezes in my GH over the years and some stuff that i was sure was a goner came back from the roots--(succulents-not cacti) If the roots didn't freeze they may surprise you!!
