K. Bogotensis Rhizomes

Seymour, IN(Zone 5b)

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!!

Connie

LOL, I don't eve have Streps. anymore and I am trying to decide if I want to start again.Right now I am going to try my hand at some of the other Gessies.

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

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Thanks Lou.I will let you know when it arrives.
Lynn

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

Thank you Lou!

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 :)

Whoops,guess I should have recognized her.

Northeast, MO(Zone 5b)

Hehe!! I'll give ya some credit, they are similar :)

Fredericksburg, VA(Zone 7a)

Not in today....

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Haven't got my mail yet.

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

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.

OH, no!! And I was worried about the cold lol!! Yep, Lou was a very generous soul and I will help get Sister Lynn fixed up...no problem with that.

Connie

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Yay! The cuttings are so nice and large I think I can save at least part of them all.
And so many!
Thanks again Lou ^_^!

I so sorry! I worry about Ma vie roses kohlerias also. Hope they arrive okay today!

Fredericksburg, VA(Zone 7a)

I am at work today, but I will check my P.O. Box again this evening.

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Oh Lou,don't you be sorry! Your box was wonderful! The machine or whatever had punctured a hole in the back of the box.
Lynn

Fredericksburg, VA(Zone 7a)

Sorry... but nothing in my box today either.

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Since you live in a warmer area it might be okay Karen.Keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Lynn

Northeast, MO(Zone 5b)

Did your box come today??
Lynn

Fredericksburg, VA(Zone 7a)

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.

Northeast, MO(Zone 5b)

Darn!!! Well, they might be rooted by the time you get them lol!!! Just joking....please stay safe :) Thoughts and prayers to you and others who are in the path of the storms.

Connie

(Lynn) Omaha, NE(Zone 5a)

Oh my gosh.I wasn't even thinking about the where you live.My thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by this storm.
Lynn

As of today's mail, Thursday, Nov. 1st, no package.
Pretty sure it's a goner by this point.
