    I do believe the discussion here is about a GROW list, not a selling list. Obviously there will be a lot of people who will have PFT plants on their grow lists because they bought them from Phil (thereby supporting this great forum that Phil so kindly allows us to have).

    If this Grow List forum were to be created, I would hope people would use the information respectfully and not look at the lists as a place to forage for free plant material. Members should be respectful and not pester folks with emails and PMs asking to be given or to purchase plants. Its always best to let someone OFFER first (Trade Forum) rather than to go around asking to be given plant material.

    Typically, a trade or SASE offer will come out of the Trading Post Forum or an established forum friendship and one can use their grow list to facilitate a trade. I always tell people to click on my grow list so they can see if anything interests them.

    Well thats what I meant.. alot of people use their growlist to advertise what they have spares of or can offer for trade. Would we not be able to list CP's from PFT because of that? Or just not be allowed to note we have extras?

    A grow list is just that. A GROW LIST. It is NOT an advertisement of plants available to sell or trade. If this forum is created, it would be there for the purpose of listing the plants a member grows. It would not be a place for "advertising" anything. Members should always wait until an offer is made on the trade forums. Obviously among friends, anything can be arranged privately. The list can be a reference for people when someone directs a person to their list if a trade is being arranged either on the Trade Forum or privately.

    While it would be great to be able to see what members are growing, it could become a problem if someone has sought-after plants and gets pestered with requests, private or otherwise. Each member would have to be respectful of people's privacy. It is best to wait for *offers* on the Trade Forum since our very generous members are so good at making great offers there.

    This subject is being discussed in the Mod Forum and we will let the membership know the results. We have to wait until Phillip has the time to address this but it seems to have a lot of support.

    Hang in there...we'll have an answer for you soon I hope. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    well I think its o.k if someone sends the grow list owners person a P.M or email if the owner specificly states that they can do that to see if there are spares available......but otherwise its NOT o.k to do that

    Bonnie, as Suzzane stated, its a Growlist, of course you can list plants PFT sells, that is not the problem. The problem would be if you titled your topic "Bobs Trade list" Or "Bobs Selling List". A growlist just shows the current plants in your collection. Then you make an offer in the trading forum, reference your growlist and people can make you offers. Fairly simple and easy to understand.

    My question was- alot of growers I know indicate on their growlist what plants they have extras of for trade, etc. Would this be considered against the rules here? Thats all I'm asking.
