Subject: Re: Plant Trader Exchange?
The killiefish group recently started posting eggs and fish for sale
or trade, but limited posting to Friday only. Perhaps we could do
something similar here, with Shaji's OK of course.
"The George" and I exchanged some plants recently, the greatest
potential problem was that the plants were going to be damaged due to
cold during shipping (we used Priority Mail). My daughters found the
box of plants from George sitting outside the house, in Minnesota. The
temperature was well below freezing, but the plants (Anubias,
Shinneresia, Alternanthera, Samolus) were all fine. For another order
I would probably have the plants shipped to my work or to a place
where I was sure someone would be able to take delivery.
I find this groups to be an extremely valuable source of information.
But I'm always trying to find new plant species to add to my aquaria.
Having an exchange program of some sort would, at least for me, be an
additional value of this group.
Couldn't agree more. Why limit it only to Friday? Shouldn't be that
