    Some suggestions..

    Don't post that your looking for giveaways (read the trading forum rules at the top if you haven't already). People have abused the TRADING forum in the past. There are lots of generous people that do give plants/seed away either for free or for postage costs and when they do so they will post it. Just keep your eyes open for them! When they see 'looking for free' they will more likely turn the other way than read your post, which does include some items folks might like to trade for.

    Put into your post what it is your looking for. It will help get the attention of folks that have spare plants of the type your wanting to trade for.

    Happy trading!
    Tony

    (Edit: Apparently the pinned trading forum rules are currently gone. They will be back shortly)



    Is that a Nepenthes in your pocket or you just happy to see me?

    That may be the case but the same thing happens to others too. Patience pays off in the end, if you post for specific plants you are looking for, are polite and at least make an attemt to trade then it will pay off. Like Tony said, there are numerous generous people here and we all remember what it was like being a newbie [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Pond boy,

    Everyone here is really generous. Sometimes you'd be amazed at what people are willing to trade for something you have a ton of. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Why don't you tell us a little about yourself? Are you currently growing any CP's at all? Which ones interest you the most?

    The aliciae I may be able to help you out with. As far as S. oreophilia, i'm not really sure if you're allowed to ship that state to state. I do however happen to have some sarracenia seedlings, and know where you can get some seed for S. oreophilia (sp?) X ?. I have no idea what my sarracenia seedlings actually are yet though.

    Btw, any idea what type of kalanchoe that is? Or am I completely wrong about that. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/tounge.gif[/img]

    Just an FYI, you can ship oreophila across state lines if

    1) it is sold with all the required papers and permits or

    2) it is a gift given freely with no material taken in return (i.e. you can not trade for an oreophila across state lines.)

    These same rules apply to all federally protected plants (CITES Appendix II I think)
