wanted: help! house sitter killed collection!

Went on 2 one-week "mini-vacations" this summer. First one the house sitters kept the animals and the plants alive. Second one, we took the animals and I came back to a bunch of dead plants!!! The water-loving ones were dried out, and the dry ones were over-watered and rotting. Ugh. If anyone has any of the below - I would gladly trade for them. Please contact me with your 'wants list' as I have more to trade than what is listed on my 'trade list'.

Thanks in advance,

Plants lost to house sitters:

Braunsia apiculata,

Echinocereus reichenbachii (lace cactus),

Epithelantha micromeris (button cactus),

Escobaria robbinsorum,

Faucaria albidens,

Faucaria felina,

Faucaria paucidens,

Faucaria tuberculosa varigated form,

Lavendin 'alba' (white lavender),
