Before it gets too cold for mailing, would anyone like a rhizome or two of K. Bogotensis? I have several newly harvested , ready to sprout rhizomes . I don't want anything in trade as I am trying to pare down my light stands for the winter. My daughter is "going to stop by and take care of my plants" while we are in Florida this winter. That means I may be asking for any gessies around when I get back. LOL She trys real hard, but doesn't have a green thumb at all. I also have stolons of Episcias: Lil Lemon, Pink Acajou, Raspberry Parade, Suomi,. KD's Irish Frost, Slinky Pink, and Jim's Lemon Zest I would give away if someone will tell me the best way to package them for mailing. It is getting cooler in the nights here, with an occassional frost or freeze, but it's not too bad yet. Lurker Lou

Lou,
I would love to have a few and also Episcia stolons.The best way to pack the stolons in to simply put them in a plastic bag,no wrapping on stems.Rhizomes are fine in a baggie too.You can blow into the Episcia bags to provide padding if needed.
Of course I will pay postage.I still have your address unless it has changed.

HA!! I just sent her a d-mail a little bit ago Sista Lynn. Wasn't sure if you had that Kohleria or not. Is Suomi looking any better for you?

This forum is staying pretty quiet. Probably too late for a RR now :(

Sis,
It is still hanging in there by a thread.The rest looks great.A RR would have to be pretty fast right now or just Rhizomes,Streps. or other things that can take a little cold.

I have more growing. You will be getting a bigger one this spring so don't worry if it doesn't make it Sis. I have more cuttings/leaves than anything else to put in a box for a RR. We will have to do a RR this spring. Streps...you got jokes LOL!!

Love the blooms on the Kohleria bogotensis!! GORGEOUS!! Can't wait!!

Lynn, sorry to have bothered you for your address. I always read your user name as Ibrabec with an I instead of an L. Oh well, old age is comical sometimes. Lou

Ooohh Lou! I hope I'm not too late! I would love to have a small piece if possible!
I have really been wanting to add a Kohleria to my Gessie collection...
I had 'Beltane' several years ago, but lost it before I could get it to bloom.
Thanks for your consideration!

I packaged these up today, and after I got them all untangled on my light shelves, some had gobbs of stolons, and others did not. So I have sent each of you as much as I could. I will send them out in the AM and hope they arrive safely this week. Lou

Sounds like my plants LOL.Right now some of my Sinningia,Kohleria and Episcia look more like a Blackberry thicket than an orderly tray.

GASP!!! Sista Lynn!!! Didn't you just get a cold snap like we did? I swear ours is coming from you...and you can have it back LOL!! We had such nice weather and it went from 64 yesterday morning to the high 30's that afternoon and continued to go down. I just knew your box would reach you before me because of the rural area I live in. Lou sent out VERY NICE cuttings and rhizomes so I hope they make it to you okay. If not, I can share what she sent me. VA_Wild_Rose must not have gotten her box either.

Connie

Just opened :)

Lou,
I received my box about 5:30.Unfortunately it met with a horrible accident at the Post Office.I think it was caught in a cancelling machine.The end of the box was open,so the Kohleria must have spilled out.
The cuttings are beautiful,but some are pretty squashed.Thank you so much for sending them.I will see what I can salvage and anything I lose I know Sister Connie will share with me.Please don't worry about re-sending anything.


The reason I posted this is so you would know why the box was delayed.
Lynn

I couldn't check the mail today. Our P.O. Is about six miles away and we are hunkered down for the hurricane. Depending on how things go tomorrow, I will try to go up there tomorrow. Our winds are at about 50mph now and they don't want people on the roads.

I feel so bad about this! I don't have any more rhizomes to share. When I do, Ma Vie Rose, You will be the recipient! My Dh mailed them and he said the envelope with yours was sent first class, because the lady at the post office said it would arrive at the same time as priority mail. I'm with youm I have given up hope now. I'm so very sorry! Lou

Karen,
It probably got caught up in this hurricane mess,although a friend mailed me a box in August and I have never received it and it did not go back to him.I am sure some of us will have plenty to share with you.I hesitate to mail anything to the East coast right now,but in a week or so or next spring I can.

Don't feel bad at all Lou. Can't help what happens once it leaves your hands. None of us mind sharing one bit and we will be able to share with Karen for sure by spring :)
