So Monday was took up by sleeping and then Tuesday I slept half the day and detailed my filthy motorcycle. I wouldn't have had time to cut and ship then anyhow. So Thank you everyone for being patient. It has been rough not working a night in over a year and then all of a sudden work a 12 hr day followed by 3 nights and then double back for a 12hr day. I am BEAT and I still managed to workout this morning.
    I can only smile reading this because my wife is a nurse and I hear the exact same thing about call ins and 12 hour days. Business as usual!

    hi JB, I sent my payment through paypal a few days ago, and I'd love to try a jade cutting if you have some to spare. You're very generous in your offerings and I wouldn't dream of rushing you Thanks!

    Hi there folks! Due to cercumstances beyond my control I was not able to ship today. Good news is I have done the trimming!! Plants will be going out tomorrow morning after I drop my daughter off at school. Here is what the plant used to look like.





    This was the stack of green vines I chopped. I tossed the woody vines. I know they will grow still. Evidence on the plant itself, but Not sure about cutting wise so stuck with the green vines.





    This is the plant after the trimming! Still have 5 growth points and I found a birds nest inside!

    It was one of my first nepenthes. About the time I started this board. When i got it from my orchid society raffle table it was already a beast. when I trimmed it the very first time after getting it I split it into 52 cuttings and 3 Large plants with about 5+ growth points each. This is one of those plants I devided from the monster back then.

    Time to go box up the plants and see how the dust settles........

    ---------- Post added at 09:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:30 PM ----------

    Ok I have a total of 22 boxes. 21 of the boxes have either a jade cutting or a leaf or two in it. All jade needs is a leaf to start a plant.

    This is my parent plant.


    This is a baby from a fallen leaf



    Here is the stack of boxes ready to go tomorrow!!!!!
    WOOT WOOT!!!! Who is excited!!! LMAO. I am so excited to be shipping again!!!!!



    Ok There are a total of 18 people on the list due to 2 drop outs. and I have a total of 22 boxes.
    Soooo!!!! That means LIGHTNING ROUND!!!! I have 4, count them 4 boxes ready to ship and need to be shipped tomorrow!!!

    1.
    2.
    3.
    4.

    The first two people get a jade in the box. The last two have a 50/50 shot. I put jade in one and not the other but just marked the boxes as extra.

    There are 3 people who have yet to pay shipping. I have since PMed them and asked them to let me know what is up. They have till noon tomorrow to paypal shipping. If by noon they have not paypaled the shipping those three boxes will be up for another LIGHTNING ROUND!!! If it comes to the second lightning round then, the boxes that are up will have till 2PM to paypal so they can be shipped when I go to pickup my daughter from school. Now let round one of the lightning rounds begin!!!

    Ready!
    Set!
    GO!!!!!!!!
