Welcome Rory!

You've come to the right website. What kind of plants are you trading, including what kind of bananas do you have? What are the importing regulations/requirements for plants from the US mainland to Samoa?

One of my nieces just recently got married to a gentleman from Samoa whose family name is "Lutu". He went to school at WSU, where there are a lot of students from Samoa. I had a lot to talk about with his relatives regarding native plants there. That was the first time that our family was outnumbered in any family gathering in Seattle.

Wonderful having you join! Everyone here is interested in bananas, and most want more of them, particularly the bananas we can't find here. I am sure that you will have many trade requests. I will be one of them for certain.
