I am tossing the idea around of hosting a fatplant co-op - anyone interested?? Y'all know the plants won't necessarily be very cheap - but, I know some of them might be willing to part with smaller, younger plants - or - I contact a nursery who sells both cacti and fatplants :-)
Any interest in a Caudiciform co-op?
Id be interested.
Miles to go sold to the cactus forum group reaaal cheap
The total was minimum 100 plants and no less than 5 of each species bought
I have no regrets heh.
I think member "dmichael619" handled it
He could give more info on the deal miles to go gave us.
Im up for whatever so long as I can afford something.
Lemme see what I can come up with - I have e-mailed some nurseries - I'll keep y'all posted :)
(Aaccck...trying to ignore this thread...and failing...)
Thanks Becky, I'll be watching to see what you find out!
same here. depending on the selection, I could be persuaded ;-)
So far - answer from Arid Lands - same as with Miles - wholesale list - min order is $200.00 and at least 5 plants of each :) LOLOL - knew I could get ya guys! Also J&J cactus :-)
That should be easy enough
If 10 people go $20,- each etc...
Ill easily do that and im the poorest here $$ wise ;p
I sell my plumies to grow the other collections ;)
I would love to, however, I have a lot and it would make a difference as to which ones. I only have room for 1 of each type. Sorry to be difficult.
Sally that is ok - their min requirements are 5 of each - so if we get 5 people wanting one we'd be fine :)
I'd be interested again if someone wouldn't mind shipping them to me.
unlike Sally, I have almost none so I'm fairly open as far as selection. The wierder the better. The smaller the better. The usual urban plant fanatic requirements, LOL.
I'd be interested. My adeniums did very well this year. Have you considered (depending on what you are looking to purchase) Snowbelt Adeniums? I don't know if he stocks or can provide other types of Caudiciforms.
As far as I know they have primarily adeniums - so I am aiming for a nursery that has a wider selection :-)
Ki - just come to visit real quick and I'll show you why you MUST start collecting caudiciforms! LOL
haha like I need help getting enabled! rofl! UC Berkeley's arid house already did that :D
I got my aribicum from Aridlands and it is massive. Snowbelt has such a huge selection. Either of those would be tempting.
The plants I received from Arid Lands were excellent - and HUGE - I am hoping to get a wholesale list from them soon :)
Becky --- I'm VERY interested, but I never participated in any co-op before, is that okay?
Like both Aridands and Snowbelt but think I have all the adeniums I want (or needs). Unless there's one I don't have- I could be persuaded. Do it fast before it turns cold though.
Will do - I am waiting for a wholesale list from Arid Lands - then we should be on the way to a good co-op :-)
K, I have a fairly updated wholesale list from Arid Lands - it is not 100% correct - so it is just an indication of what they have - if anyone is interested - I can e-mail the list to y'all - just d-mail me your regular e-mail addy :)
Has it been decided that they are who we r going to buy from?
K, since I can't get hold of anything truly updated and the weather is turning colder - I'll hold off until spring :)
That's a shame... But I think I am more relieved than disappointed, LOL!
I think it's a good decision since many of the interested folks live in colder climates than I do, and it's no fun for anyone to be stressed out over whether or not the plants would be shipped too late to be safe.
I had fun poring over the Arid Lands website anyway. If you decide to tackle this in spring, I'll be interested!
If and when this takes place, I'd be interested, too. I'll watch this thread.
I'm new to fat plants and I love them! Please count me in for the co op experience when you are ready.
I just discovered this forum and fat plants in general, but what better way to start out than getting in on an order like this. I'll probably forget before y'all do the order, but just d-mail me with some notice (a couple weeks in case I get so busy working in the garden that I don't check DG for a while) and I'll probably be in, especially if it just takes a $20 order. Who am I kidding? I know I'll spend more than that!
Any more interest in this?
I'd sure like to participate; esp. in one from Arid Lands. I can't host it, but I can buy! =)
Once I am sure of the weather and temps here I'll get back with everyone and let ya know :)
Let us know here too--I don't really pay to much attention to the CoOp forum (too many plants I don't grow) but do keep this thread marked.
Just wanted to show you guys this link: http://www.select-seeds.com/Plants.htm
they have cuttings for Thai COTs for 1.35 something like that... of course there is a minimum of 250.00 order, but a co-op can easily do that... also, I don't know the reputation of this company either, has anyone heard of it as far as plants go? I think I've seen that it sells seeds.
Other prices don't look bad.
edited to correct 1.25 to 1.35 per cutting

Gourd - That is a very interesting site. With enough people $250. wouldn't be hard to reach.
Looks like an awesome selection! I would be interested and I'm sure there would be alot of others.
I would be interested injoining this co-op. Have grown adenium seeds and purchased pachys from Snowbelt and purchased Adeniums from various places, but am always on the lookout for more.
