still got it....it even flowered........
Andy touches on a good point about trade etiquette-let people know when your package arrives. It is just polite.
I traded with someone on a different forum and then emailed back and forth for a bit. We did another trade or two and one day I decided to thin the collection and send a package out of the blue with a bunch of stuff not on his/her growlist. I heard nothing back. For a long time.
I have not been in contact with this person since.

I'm sorry to revive this thread, but I think it bears repeating if not *sticky*-ing. I've seen some rude "I want you to send me some of your plant now" posts *and* personal PM's lately, and I really don't want to be in a bad mood when I'm on this forum. In fact, I come here to get into a good mood with all the awesome people and their pretty plant pics, and not to see pestering on a daily basis!
Yes i defenetely agree!
Friendship is like peeing on yourself: everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling that it brings.
been happening as long as ive been here...have yet to see anything that will stop it.....just tell them to take a flying leap.....
I've been guilty of this a few times... now, if I see a plant I like, I will always offer anything off my growlist in a possible trade, and if it doesn't work out, it doesn't work out.

it's either that or reduce your growlist detail to only contain vfts, S. purpurea, D. capensis and D. spatulata....do that though, and you miss out on plenty of propagation opportunities like seed grown petiolaris species dews or neps or stuff like that. yeah, the first option is much better---i like it so much that im going to do that right now.
a serious offer to trade has never bugged me, well unless yah catch me on a bad day....."gimmes" arent tolerated very well though.....
