Yeah I think it is a good Idea for everyone to "express" what they fancy so whoever gets that person knows what direction to go! I don't want to send someone plants that the person doesn't care about.

Likes:
Philodendrons, Alocasias, Colocasias...any and I'm fond of large or unusual leaves whether they're green or variegated. Also Begonias, Palms, Gingers, Bromeliads, Brugmansias, and Orchids. Bird of Paradise and a Bougainvillea of any color are special wants. Cannas are good too. How did I forgot Amaryllis? I'll probably end up editing again but you all get the jist that I'll appreciate any plants you share with me.

Dislikes:
Don't know why but I kill Crotons.

Yes it will be, Dan, and I'm going to miss the opportunity to trade with one of you this time. I've never backed out of a swap til now. My reason has nothing to do with newbies or that other "stuff", it's simply a bad timing issue Barbara was aware of earlier.

Everybody have fun, that's the name of game!

Ha! I've been around the boards for years. Drift in and out. I'm using the trade list as a sort of inventory too. Not everything on there is available but no harm in asking. My arm can always be twisted. Just started listing yesterday. Will take me a week to get it all in.
