HAVE: For postage or trade: Callisia fragrans

DH's Mom let this stuff get on the ground and I pulled up 2 big buckets of it, beautiful healthy plants, most with babies attached. Neither of us has room to keep this much! Am sending in medium flat-rate USPS box, $12.30, definitely holds enough for instant gratification. Offer stands until it's gone to new homes, I have enough for about 5 full boxes, for either postage or trade (please see my exchange list, and open to suggestions!)

I would love to trade, I don't really have anything on your want list but since your open to suggestions, I have
Kalanchoe humilis
Plectranthus verticillatus- sweedish ivy cuttings
streptocarpella saxorum - concord blue- cuttings
Plectranthus coleoides - Nico - Cuttings
Begonia-Moonlight- cuttings
Let me know if we can make a trade!

Nina, awesome to hear from you! There's actually nothing on your list I'd say no to. Anything else of mine that might interest you? In addition to stuff on trade list on exchange page, I could offer...
Alternanthera ficoidea 'Joseph's coat'
a Dracaena marginata 'tricolor' baby
Algaonema with red-edge leaves
Begonia 'Castaway'
Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender'
A different Plectranthus from yours (I think, pic below)
Aglaonema modestum, plain green

I'd love to trade multi-boxes if that would interest you? Just let me know what your thoughts are, either way!

Thank you,

if you have any left I would gladly take some for postage, let me know,
Thank you!

I am glad to see someone else that knows what this truly is. Have you seen the red leaf or variegated variety?

Your pic is Cuban Oregano

Lindamarie, yes I've seen pics of variegated, would love to have some! This one turns dark in the sun, but not sure if that's what you meant by red leaves?

Starting to see the very beginnings of flower stalks in the center of the rosettes. Can't wait to do s'more sniffing when the flowers come on!
