Admin has said we can have a "sticky" thread for our Wants and Haves.

I think we should keep the rules for posting simple . . . 1. One post per member and 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, "sticky" away, Admin!

Hi All-

If you are one of the regulars here on the AV board or one of my trading buddies (from DG or elsewhere), feel free to ask about any of my plants at any time -- I have plenty and will always be more than happy to share whatever I can. For others, I'm afraid I won't be able to do "for postage" trades ( I have had a lot of requests for these). But I am an avid collector of many other types of plants and would be happy to entertain trades for plants outside of the gesneriad family -- just send me a link to your tradelist.


AVs           Russians (plants, leaves); Robs (leaves mostly); Senks and other wasps (plantets/leaves); Deans and Macs (leaves, some plants). Also, a few trailers and a lot of others. Ask if you are looking for something in particular.

Episcia       Blue Nile, Ember Lace/EL Reverse, Emerald Green, Jim's Canadian Sunset/Rose Garden/Dancing Doll, Flamingo, Heartland's Fleeting Gold, Silver Sheen, Fanny Haague, Strawberry Patch, Pink Acajou

              *   Columnea ( 'Firebird' )
              *   Streptocarpus ( Roulette Azur, Alabaster Rose, Hartlands Glacier some others -- see my trade list )
              *   Nematanthus ( Christmas Holly )
              *   Misc ( Hoyas, Rhipsalis, other jungle cactus -- quite a few of all three )


In general, I am open to suggestions. I am most interested in striking or unusual colors, variegated or nonstandard leaves (longifolia, girl, clackamus, compound, etc) or just about anything weird/unusual. Currently obsessed with episcias. And any Russians (particularly with variegated leaves or flowers) would be great. Some others I'd like to find are:

               *   Rob's Scrumptious
               *   Georgia Star
               *   Amethyst Sparks
               *   Cherry Cola
               *   Mac's Coral Cutie (or any variegated Mac I don't have)
               *   Heinz's Sentimental
               *   Brass Band
               *   Dean's Lady Bug (or any Dean I don't have)
               *   Cinnamon Candy
               *   Wrangler's Ghost Riders

Episcia   Star of Bethlehem, Chocolate Velour, Chocolate and Cherries, Alice's Outback, Suomi, Silver Dust, Silver Skies, La Solidad Bronze, Any pink or pink variegate

               *   Streptocarpus ( Bristol's Mei Lei, Roulette Cherry, Guidelines, Japanese hybrids )
               *   Columnea ( Any yellow or orange )
               *   Nematanthus ( Tropicana or others )
               *   Sinningia ( Fuchsia Treasure -- have 3 micros, but would love any bright colors, minis or micros )
               *   Kohleria ( Any; would esp like Silver Feather )

Thanks for looking!

Need a pure WHITE standard size AV with large blooms.
Just a leaf or two is OK.

My boss loves the way they brighten-up the gray cubicle.

The official temperature outside is "freakishly cold", which means the chances of any kind of trade and/or plant purchases are at least 2 months away (unless you have a system, in which case I"m craving a trade for mini and semi-mini leaves) . . .

So, what to do in the meantime? For those that have posted Have/Wants previously, please take the time to update your lists . . . for those that have not posted previously - shame on you!

Seriously, though, even if you post a few leaves at a time . . . we all have to start somewhere, right? And with the spring shows/sales coming up soon, someone may see something you are looking for!

Wanted: African Violet leaf

Standard Pure White

Mail it to me if you are far south enough to avoid freezing.

Here is a strange Optimara: Two for the price of one.
I bought one 4" plant but it split as it developed,
and one has regular foliage and flat petal blooms,
but the one next to it has FRILLY foliage and blooms.

I think if you take them out of the pot you will find 2 different plants. The one on right looks like Optimara Everlove or Optimara Nebraska

In particular, I'd like;

I've been there - twice! and each time i spend way over $100! Both times the strep selection was minimal. I would love to trade with the folks on DG - I've gotten healthier plants and a very nice selection.
Thanks for the suggestion though

Yeah...hard not to spend a fortune there! ack!
Hint...the plants available in the public greenhouses come and go, they keep a private stock. If you ask for a specific plant, and they have one, they will propagate a plant for you...if you ever get really stuck for a source.

Hi gang,
Looking into growing this little beauty but having a hard time finding seeds. Ordered from Petite plants this morning but she emailed back later that they were out an failed to pull them off the site. I can Paypal whatever the cost of the seeds and shipping would be. Why are these so hard to find??? Thanks!

I know I haven't been on this forum in a while, but I am still around, and I lurk... ;o)

Hope you all have been well!

I am getting back in to Streps. I have already ordered most of my favorites, but there are a couple varieties I can't find via eBay or other on-line sources. I will list them under my name way up near the top of this thread... But quickly they are... Helter Skelter, and Space Dust. I love fantasy Streps, so if you know of any unusual fantasies out there... the Dimitris line (DS, out of Russia) comes to mind... Please let me know!

Thanks, and have a blessed day!
