Hi all.

I am hankering to add a few huernia species to my collection, and am wondeirng if anyone here might have cuttings available. Have only limited material to trade, but do have a little spare $.

Also curious to know if anyone has any stapelias that I don't yet have. So far I've found cuttings of varigata, leendertziae, and gigantea, and seeds of a few more. I'm just germinating the seeds now, and some look dodgey, so anything other than these three species and whatever doesn't sprout might be of interest.

Oh, and if anyone has an antidote for collecting spikies and succulents, please share! Embarassed

I gather you want to trade with others from Tas.........I don't think us from the mainland can send over to you or has this changed?

Cuttings should be OK shouldn't they? As long as there is no soil in the parcel. You should check your local laws though WD.

When I purchase potted plants from commercial suppliers they send a phytosanitary certificate with the plants.

Other commercial suppliers that I have bought stuff from send their plants bare-rooted, and for this it appears that they don't need a certificate. It puzzles me somewhat as there are potential issues other than soil-borne ones, and yet many mainland suppliers routinely send to Tassie as long stuff is bare-rooted. In the past, and even this spring, I've got loads of bare-rooted fruit trees and some herbs from Greenpatch with no problem.

There are exceptions for weed-species of course, and some fruit and vegie species - you can often see mainland catalogues where 'Not to Tas' is plastered across some of the items offered, while the rest are fine. For example, organic tomato, chillie and corn seeds are not allowed. And every Autumn Gardening Australia has a catalogue where there are inevitably some species that I can't get in. Sad

There aren't too many mail-order cacti suppliers though. Of those that I have found some do send potted, with certification, but they are exy! No commercial operation seems to send cuttings, or bare-rooted cacti or succulents.

I'm leary of Ebay; especially as, being a student, I can't afford to bid against the rest of you! (That ant-plant looked fine...). And most Ebay sellers aren't bothered to fuss with certification when it's required.

Sadly, I don't know any Tasmanians with enormous cactus/succulent collections.
