Hey everybody! Anybody want to trade orchids?! Itís a fun, easy, and cheap way to collect more orchids and expand your expertise ;-). Itís spring and itís time to repot, divide, and get some new orchids!
I have recently traded with two new friends and came away with 10 plants from each of them for only the cost of shipping! These plants bought from a vendor would have gone for up to $200 and it only cost me $9.50!
Make a list of orchids that you have extra of or are overflowing their pot/mount. Put up your list on this forum and maybe somebody will see something they like and want to trade. Itís a great way to make friends. I would be interested in mainly species orchids. My list:
(All Epidendrum plants are very healthy keikiís growing from a huge mother plant with lots of roots and growing tips. Some are in flower/spike now!)
-Barkeria lindleyana, almost full grown keiki (lots of roots and looks like flower spike coming.)
-Epidendrum radicans (bright orange yellow lip)
-Epidendrum radicans (orange)
-Epidendrum secundum (purple)
-Epidendrum radicans (yellow)
-Epidendrum ibaguense (red)
-Epidendrum ellipticum (white)
-Dendrobium Nagasaki (healthy keiki, 6 3Ē roots)
-Dendrobium kingianum 2 varieties
-Oncidium flexuosum ďdancing lady orchidĒ
-Vanilla planifolia orchid cuttings (plant is pushing roots like theres no tomorrow!)
-Maxillaria minuta (20 growth miniature)
-Tillandsia (air plants, not orchids) Bright flowers!! noids
-Cymbidium backbulbs/divisions (many colors, light purple, white, dark purple, yellow)
-Asclepia tuberosa SEEDS (Butterfly milkweed plant) Lots of dark orange flowers that attract native butterflies like the Monarch. My plant is making tons of seeds and are just flying all over the place so might as well put them to some use. NOT AN ORCHID
-Strawberry plants.. Full grown throwing runners everywhere around my planter so i'm either tossing them or trading/giving them away lol.
-Kalancho succulent. Aka Mother of Millions. Grows like a frigg#n weed and am pulling them up from everywhere. Has an amazing flower display when they do flower though so they are pretty cool besides making hundreds of offshoots that fall off and root everywhere.
If anything interests you then send me a message and we will try and get a trade going!! Best thing is.. Everybody wins!
Species only for me please!
I know its not a fascinating list but there are some fun things i think
