I want to start a designated butterfly garden . Will trade, please look at my list and respond to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Calotropis gigantea (Giant Milkweed/Crown Flower) can't be grown outdoors year round in your zone but it is a fairly easy container plant.
I've been wanting this plant for a long time, too - hope you find it!
I have some seeds that germinated recently. They were from a trade, but I believe they are the correct species from the size of both the seeds and the resulting seedlings. I would post a photo, but I've lost my data cable, again.
If anyone wants me to pot up a seedling for later, let me know. This weekend I will be discarding the unfortunate excess sprouts.
Alana, I'll take the excess sprouts - just let me know what you'd like in trade. Hugs, Jo
Okay, Kay. No trade. I owe you for the last beautiful vine I added to my collection.
I will pot them up and send them when the weather improves again. It looks like after today or tomorrow we are back to winter-even more winter than winter was, if the forecast holds.
Alana, if you've got any left...(*grin*)
Alana, hey don't forget me too if you have any excess!
I won't. I have a few seeds left. If you would rather have those, you may, or I can pot you up a seedling or two for later-whichever you prefer.
I will give it a go with the seeds. It will give me give something to look forward too when they sprout. Do you have any words of advice and do I need to send you a SASE? Thank you very much!!!
No words of advice-I'll just tell you that mine germinated in about 10 days. They were planted in ProMix Seed Starting Mix, but any kind will be fine, and placed on a heat mat. The large cotyledon's surprised me.
Send me your address.
Sure and thanks I will re-send my contact info

Christine, you can use the 'edit' feature within your post to remove your name and address, just for safety's sake. Use Alana's 'My Page' to email the info. directly to her.
Thanks Kay for the heads up, I totally forgot about safety with all that's going on in my life
Sorry this comes to you so late, but I did get the seeds and thank you for sending them. I will hopefully get back in the groove. I have had a very trying month. I am going to start planting this week!
Wanted - seeds of less-common milkweeds. I have scarlet & yellow and have just started incarnata & perennis. Will share any of them once they're old enough to set seed. Thanks...
