    I am trying to rebuild a cp collection. I have a greenhouse, indoor lights and an outdoor garden. I have for trade various Bromeliads, cacti Stapeliads, Succulents, passion flowers, Philos etc.. Plus in my outdoor gardens (zone 5)waterlillies, Opuntias, Sedums, Bamboos, etc. I have Lotuses also but they will not ship until spring.

    I'd be interested... It's summer now. Do you mean next spring?

    The lotuses only can be dug or transpranted Mar-early april otherwise they will promptly die. I have learned this the hard way.

    Hi Phil,

    Welcome to the Forums bro!

    Hey guys, this is one fine CPer we have here. You know how I feel about supporting the generous, and Phil is a saint in that regard. He also sends very good material, usually mature cuttings. He left the Stapeliads off his list. The ones he just sent to me are top notch plants. Let's get him going with some CP's!

    In addition to being a master grower of orchids and many other exotica, he is also an accoplished gem cutter (DROOL), and he keeps those slimy slithery things so many of you love. (ICK).

    Phil is also what is known as a 'good cop' and is a Sargent for the Pennsylvania State Police. The folk there are lucky to have him. He's probably the only cop I met who didn't want to arrest me on sight, LOL!

    I have a hunch we are all going to be very happy he joined our family since he has always been one of the most generous growers I have ever met. Once he gets going he will no doubt contribute strongly to the welfare and continuance of the CP we grow amongst us. He's a good bet.

    Phil, I didn't get the plants off today as I hoped to, but Monday I will have a box ready with whatever I have left in my collection that I can spare. Won't be much I'm afraid, but hopefully by the end of the season I can do better for you.

    I have a Nep. khasiana I rooted last year and it's producing 2"+ pitchers. I'm interested in Bromeliads. Bruce
