wanted: have: string of pearls

Just recently purchased a String of Pearls plant (Senecio rowleyanus) at a local supermarket without really knowing how to care for it. Left it out in direct sunlight for a few hours, assuming that because it's a succulent, that it would require bright, direct sunlight. Anyway, it's slightly burned on top, but is still definitely savable. I'm not a very experienced gardener, therefore, do NOT want to invest the time in caring for this gem of a plant. Nor do I have any place for it indoors.

As far as what I'd like:

Dahlia tuber(s)
Any other tubers/bulbs that can be planted for late summer/early fall bloom.

I'm new to this online exchange thing, therefore would like it if someone local could exchange, but would be willing to ship the plant.

I live in Severn, MD.

RE: wanted: have: string of pearls

My apologies! I realized that I posted in the "WANTED" section? I "HAVE" this plant for exchange. Not really sure how this works. If anyone could advise me, would be great.


RE: wanted: have: string of pearls

I'll take it. I have a couple of dahlias not sure of color and red spider lilies that I could send you. Let me know.

RE: wanted: have: string of pearls


Sure! Would love even just the Dahlias alone. Please email me at:

I've never mailed a plant, so am hoping maybe you could give me some pointers. Should I mail this plant bare root?

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.
