HAVE: bougainvillea 5'', purple

botanical_billDecember 20, 2006

I have about a half dozen bougainvillea from hard wood cuttings, rooted very nicly using liquid root hormone. The parrent and cuttings had purple bracts.

Looking for:

-Chinese elm, cork bark

-Japanese maple, non hybrid

-willow leaf ficus

I still have the calamondin oranges with about 5 seeds each, I have about 10 of these. I dried out the fruit, leaving the seed inside.

Im willing to trade both a few bougainvillea and calamondin seeds for one or a few plants off my wish list.

Make me an offer.

I would love one or two of your cuttings. I have tons of Chinese Parasol Tree seed and probably a few seedlings to trade. Please let me know what you think. Thanks, Cliff

I don't get to this site often, as the date shows! Do you have any of the bougainvillea left? You are looking for ficus nerifolia? I have some cuttings that were rooted last summer. Let me know! Jeff

Hello,
I'd like 'em all - I'm hoping to start some Boug cuttings.

I have plenty of different prebonsai including your Ficus. Take a look - thanks

Bill - still waiting to hear from you.

I also wanted to add - The Chinese Parasol has huge leaves, yes, but I think the reason she offered you some is because they have an awesome huge taproot that can be raised. I do this with mine, and it's quite stunning - I have some babies as well to offer. Thanks

I have to appoligize for not getting back to you guys. I have a pop up every day to remind me to get back to you. I snoozed on it since october.
I have been moving and in that I lost the plants. They didnt like being moved, I think it shocked them.
But since I have a cuttings box and know how to do this, Ill try again in the spring when I have my own house and wont be moving around.
Ill post here when I get them rooted and ready to trade. Im going to drive around and find a purple plant and possibly an orange or yellow one. Get a varity.

Till I post again, take care and have a happy new year.
