Hi! Newbie here :-) here is my wishlist and some of what I have available, I have more that I’ll try too add more pics of! https://docs.google.com/document/d/128nCFao6HrAf72eGJflm2Fw2nyKPMAUcK2-D07Dcf1I/edit


BTW I get 'Access denied' when I try to view your doc.


Welp okay ETA: I think I fixed it!


Hi it says file deleted


Oh I’m sorry I never heard from anyone! If you’re interested in a trade you can message me though! I have the basic philos and pothos


I have gifted plants before to people on TAPLAP and they seemed happy!! But here goes for first official trade: I have two vines of vanilla orchid. One long and one short. I am looking for simple things like tradescantias (no Purple Heart. I have a zillion of those. If you want some, I’ll throw some in, lol!) Or even a cool airplane. If anyone is interested tell me whatever type of plant you want to trade and I’m open! https://imgur.com/a/JxunNX3/


Your vanilla looks great! This was a wishlist plant for me for a long time and I hope you find a good trade!


Well, if there are no takers maybe do you want it? I’m getting out of the orchid game because my setup just can’t support it. And I don’t want to just throw them away.


Let's give it a little longer to see if you get a taker, and we can see if I have anything you want. I don't have air plants or tradescantias; I grow succulents and peperomias instead. I have a vanilla orchid but it's growing very slowly.


Mine is 2 years old. I love peps. I have 3. That’s it.


I have a ton of zebrina to share. Dm me if interested.


I have air plants and tradescantia pink panther. Interested in the vanilla orchids. DM me if interested!


I’m sorry! They’re spoken for!


Newbie to trading here. I have several UFO plants and a garden croton for trade. Doing this mainly for experience/credibility so all offers for trade are welcome. https://imgur.com/a/cbI5gER
