Mailed my buddies box his morning

Have my plants, but am not sending until Monday, sorry.

Tyler, TX(Zone 8b)

Mailed my partner's box today.

Kansas City (Joyce), MO(Zone 5a)

I got a box last night late, yes I did and it had a beautiful fragrant tea olive and it is in beautiful shape.
This is what it says about it, apricot-scented blossoms are produced in all seasons of the year, the main bloom comes in spring and fall. In autumn, winter, and early spring white flowers cover the plant. Although the blooms are tiny, they are able to fragrance the whole yard..... I can't wait!

It is a beautiful plant and something I had never heard of.

Great partner, great plant.

Northeast, WA(Zone 5a)

Well, I screwed up and posted on the closed link, and I see you bumped this one up so hope it is ok to post here. Hope I didn't mess this up too. LOL

I got mine yesterday and what fun!! I got a wonderful box of cuttings of tropicals and also some were rooted plants. Got everything planted and situated today. So exciting, just like Christmas, opening each one. Loved them all.

Will take a picture and post tomorrow. Thanks to a great partner. Would like to post the name but didn't see where anyone else was so better not. But they know who they are. LOL

I ordered my swap plant from here... marketplace... they agreed to ship it directly. Now I am just waiting on them to give me an invoice... UGH! I don't know what is taking them so long!!! But anyways, swap partner - you will be getting a lovely plant but it may be on the late side, sorry!

Northeast, WA(Zone 5a)

Ok, here is a picture of the gorgeous healthy plants that I received. I hope I can remember all of them:

Variegated hibiscus
ginger, costus
Cryphtanthus (earth star)
Pink Princess Philodendron
Norgelia "Fireball"
Large leafed white philodendron (my description. you can see it)
Arrow leafed philodendron
Another variegated philodendron

Maybe after I see the picture again I can pick out the rest. They are all great plants. All but 2 are rooted plants.

No, it wouldn't enlarge for me. Oh well. You can see how nice they are. Thanks for a great swap.

My box came while I was in the Hospital. They were all in great shape and I love them all. I put them in pots and am remembering what they are as I type. I got Pretoria Canna, Red Blaze caladium, Star fruit tree, a baby Plumeria, inch vine, a Desert Rose, and a Hoya


This one is Pretoria Canna, Red Blaze caladium and a Hoya

I hope what I ordered on the 14th is already shipped from Almost Eden. I was taken to the emergency room Tues the 8th at Midnight and stayed in until the evening of the 13th. I am sorry buddy I did not get it ordered sooner.

The one item I sent I had till the freeze this winter killed it. It was over 9 feet tall and gorgeous. I really miss it but know you will just love it. I had mine in morning sun and afternoon shade and when it started blooming it did not quit till it got cold. Was hoping it would come back but it did not. :o(

Blackshear, GA

Just wanted to say I will mail mine Monday. Sooo sorry buddy, but have been out of town alot.

Tyler, TX(Zone 8b)

ilovejesus99, Hope your hospital stay wasn't too unpleasant. So glad you're happy with your box and that most everything made out okay. Hope you found the seeds I sent too. Enjoy!

Baytown, TX(Zone 9b)

Dog gone it I tried so hard not to forget anything and yes I found the wonderful seeds. Darn now I miss placed them. Will be back as soon as I find them *Blushing*

I was taken to the emergency room last Tuesday the 8th had inflamed liver and pancreas. There was a lg stone in the duct where the pancreas, liver and gall bladder empty causing a lot of problems. They got the inflammation down then they removed the stone doing the blocking Friday and the Gall bladder was removed Saturday. I came home on Sunday finally.

Thanks Chell but it wasn't fun but so necessary. I had called a surgeon on Tues and they were going to be out for a month. I told them I will call my doctor and we will find another one as I could not wait a month. :) Well at midnight I found out just how right I was about waiting. I am glad it is over and great I did not have a lot of time to think about it/. Now to get the staples out on around the 28th. My medical doctor says I am doing good and did some blood work today.

Darn my package won't ship till Monday but I would not change what I am sending. Sorry again Buddy.

Just wanted to post a picture of my green treasures from my very generous Swap buddy. As you can see, all the plants were carefully packed for shipping as they are already thriving in their new pots. I was really excited to receive a new ZZ plant as I lost mine a couple winters ago AND my friend also sent a Calocasia Coffee Cups, which has been on my wish list for a couple seasons. I was also really touched that my swap friend shared 2 Birdnest Anthuriums grown from seed that were collected on a trip to Mexico. It is always great to have plants with a story behind them. Thanks again for a superb swap!
