I'll add 8 Alocasia 'Hilo Beauty' if that works out. I haven't tried these before so this may be a good chance to give them a try.

My apologies, Richard. I was looking on the AgriStarts web page and not on the availability list. 'Tis a shame though, I would love to have a few.

Great Job Team !!

I need everyone to please look at this updated list and notice two things:
  1. The number you requested might have been adjusted. Please let me know if this created a problem.
  2. Volunteer to accept a few or several plants from those marked "need help".

User zysx has been eliminated and thus the quantities ordered on Siam Ruby were adjusted downward (sorry). Please let me know if you'd rather adjust them upward.

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, and non-ladies and non-gentlemen

We have 5 full flats now, pending some information on the hardiness and flavor of Glenn and Cross.

If the variety you requested is not in one of the flats, consider buying another 10 -- because your shipping cost is going to be in that range anyway.

Richard, is it possible for me to reduce my request on 'Hilo Beauty' to only 2 plants and add 6 of 'Dwarf Namwah'? I only requested 8 as I had not seen 1aday's request and wanted to help get the selection up to 18 but hatfam later requested 4. You could then swap 'Hilo Beauty' with 'Ice Cream' on the flats they are assigned to.

If it's too much bother, don't worry about it.

Also, if you don't mind parting with 2 each of the following on your list, I'd take them:
'Gran Nain'
'Dwarf Orinoco'
'Misi Luki'

Thanks again,

Harvey the gentleman

I would like to place an order for:

musa kru----------------------3

ensete ventricosum maurlii --3
You can add up 3 each if needed to fill a flat or delete if not enough.
Thank you. Joe
