spider plant collector

amber_m(5)May 8, 2012

hi, i love spider plants. some people just dont get it because they arent very colorful and showy (my husband being one of those typed that dont get it) anyways, i used to have a nice collection of plants but then we had to vacate our home fairly quickly and i lost most of my plants in the move. im looking on here for anyone who would be willing to share some babies off their plants so that i could get back to collecting? im hoping for it to be possibly considered a gift from one plant lover to another because i dont have much to offer in return but if need be i will offer to crochet a plant hanger for you. ive just started making my own plant hangers, and i dont know how to do macrame yet but i can crochet and they are turning out pretty nice. i hope that i can start my collection back up, i live on a very limited budget because im a stay at home mom so i cant go out and buy what i want, and this would make my day to be able to have lots of plants again. thank you.

Hi Amber & welcome,

I'm sorry that you have to start over, but pls. read the Rules here. Also read the Rules at the Exchange Page next door.

Asking for plants is not allowed, I'm sorry to have to discourage you from doing this. One has to offer trade (or at least offer to pay postage, just that alone is also discouraged). I DO see your offer to make hangers for them so I see you are trying.

Perhaps you can get a couple of cuttings from your neighbors just to get you started. Or maybe get a couple of cheapy starters from the big box stores?

Sorry to be a bummer, but pls. stop cutting & pasting your post about spider plants on every thread about Spider plants.

That's also not permitted, your first, initial posting here, to which I'm responding is sufficient.

Hi & welcome to Gardenweb. Sorry for your difficulties & hope things smooth over soon. You're not the first person to get a little over-excited and bungle the protocols here. I hope you'll stick around & agree that you should post on the house plant exchange forum. Good luck!
