Syrumani set up the stickys for the African Violet forum, and did such a great job, I will quote her:
QUOTE: I think we should keep the rules for posting simple:
1. One post per member
2. No chatting. This way, it will cut down on browsing time to find the actual list for each member . . . does that make sense? Each member can go and edit their post as many times as they'd like. Does everyone agree? If so, post your lists, everyone!

I will save a spot as well. I will have to wait and see what makes it out of the greenhouse after this winter. We had a lot of cold days and I keep it minimally heated lol. I think I have probably lost a lot of bananas and tropical hibiscus grrr. Hopefully they will return. from the roots/corms.
I am also starting a ton of new stuff from seeds so will see how that goes.
Begonia - cuttings of 'Looking Glass' also 'Odorata Alba' fragrant, very large, and 'Don Miller' cuttings
Canna, a tall NOID with plain blue/green leaves and delicate soft orange flowers. Very vigorous!
Daylily, medium height red with gold throats, in bloom already (early April) and re-blooms all summer here! Multiplies well, too.

Heliconia 'Lobster Claw'
Loquat seedlings from my neighbor's tree with delicious small fruit, courtesy of the birds and squirrels. Well rooted in starter mix.
Achimenes, purple and also white flowered variety.
EE's - Colocasia 'Blue Hawaii' starts bare-root with good tubers and one or more leaves.
I want every plant but need to wait for spring to accept anything in trade. I'll gladly send plants now in trade for things you will have in springtime (March-ish) or for postage.
Sadly, I don't have room for anything more just now.
Keep checking back as this will change constantly:
I would prefer rooted cuttings as mine will be rooted, thanks.

Any perennial for Zone 8b (I have lots of plants that I can share cuttings of or root for you)

PLEASE NOTE...some of these are hard to find or expensive plants...I would like to trade for the same type of plant (ex. brome for brome) or like value. Thanks

NOTE: I have lots of Lignum Vitae seedlings. They should be decent size by spring of 2012. Some are around 6-7" tall now but I want them to have a good root system to be able to sustain the transplant into larger pots. I have a new back coming up now under the mother trees so by next spring, if all goes well I will have hundreds.
I can always use more Rain Lillies
Anything fragrant or colorful that I don't already have.
I have plenty of dinner plate Aralia cutting or I can root them. The soft wood roots by just sticking it in the ground, no Rootone needed but it helps them root faster. Dip n' Grow works even better.
I have lots of Staghorn pups, my Staghorns are BIG

I have two tiny Queen Victoria Agaves for postage. They are small enough that each could probably fit into a bubble envelope so the postage should be reasonable. They came from a propagation class I took at Plant Delights last summer. These are seedlings. The pots are 3" so you can tell how small they are.
