EXTRAS FOR SALE OR TRADE

Like anybody who enjoys plants I always seem to have a few extras of something or something that got to big I would like to get rid of to make room for the next great palm etc. So I will list what I need to clear out by trade, barter, or sale. Most of my plants were started from seed so most of my collection is less than seven years old. So I am always looking for medium size palms and cycads of all but the most common.

PALMS

CYCADS


STAGHORN FERNS

I try to collect and trade only cultivars and sp. that are true to name and have the best distinct characteristics of that type. Many Platyceriums are sold under many names that at best are only minor variations of the standard bifurcatum or hillii or at worst they are just the same plant grown under different conditions or renamed wrong.  The variation on one plant can be dramatic from year to year, sun to shade, and beach to desert.  I find most Platyceriums show their best form in bright areas ( some forms can even take a few hours of morning sun) and tend to look drawn out and plain in dark shade.

I have added a few growing tips at http://home.earthlink.net/~decho/platyculture.htm

some mounting info at http://home.earthlink.net/~decho/stagmount.htm

Plants without prices sold out for now more available soon

All plants sold mounted unless otherwise noted or requested
