Would love to participate in another tropical swap!!!
Thanks Barbara! It is great to see you again!!!!

I'm in.

Winter Haven, FL(Zone 9b)

Count me in, I had a blast with one of the last tropical plant swaps, and now I have a lot more to give!

Richmond, TX(Zone 9a)

I may be interested. will we get a chance to express a preference? I'm really lusting after brugs

Winter Haven, FL(Zone 9b)

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.

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

Would love to have you but we can't guarantee what you will get. That is part of the fun.

(Nadine) Devers, TX(Zone 9b)

Oh kind of swap..

Should we start to list what we would like to receive?

Northeast, WA(Zone 5a)

Can I get in, or maybe just lurk? Sounds like fun but don't know the rules.

Hattiesburg, MS(Zone 8a)

If everyone wants, they can list some of their likes.

Naples, FL(Zone 10a)

OK I like anything that blooms, and I don't want anything that needs a lot of water (like Aroids).

Blue Ridge Mtns, VA(Zone 7a)

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.

Don't know why but I kill Crotons.
