Anybody located in Canada that would be interested in trading?

Post by CACTUSCANADA »

Hello All,
I am located in Canada, its hard to find fellow hobbyists here.
I'm looking for people located domestically that might be up for trades.
Also making new friends and helping each other out along the way.
If your looking for something in particular let me know otherwise I have a few cacti and seeds I could trade.
Thanks,
CC

following this post because I'm also highly interested to see whats available more locally.
I am brand new to the hobby and really have nothing to offer at this point, but am really interested in finding some hobbyists near by that I could potentially buy from in the future.

Canadian here. I try to grow thousands of seedlings a year. I usually have some oddities left over and am always looking for something interesting/challenging/strange, etc.

Would be good to know guys, what are willing to trade or at least grow?

I don't have many if any large collection plants that are suitable to trade by sending in a parcel, package by post. I have mainly (limited number of) seedlings, (can do) cuttings or offsets of different Mammillaria, Opuntia ficus-indica, Hylocereus, Pereskiopsis, Tunilla, Lophophora, Rebutia, Turbinicarpus, Lobivia and some others, succulents like Haworthia. From outdoor grown up also lot off O. fragilis pads and some others.

OK, here is my Grow list:
  • Ariocarpus - 2 spec.
  • Astrophytum - 3 spec.
  • Copiapoa montana;
  • Coryphantha - 3 spec.
  • Discocatus boomianus;
  • Disocactus martianus;
  • Echinocactus grusonii;
  • Echinocereus - 6 spec., some seedlings.
  • Echinopsis - 6 - 7 spec., some seedlings.
  • Eriosyce - 2 spec.
  • Epithelantha - 2 spec.
  • Escobaria - 3 spec.
  • Ferocactus - 2 spec.
  • Frailea - 3 - 4 spec.
  • Gymnocalycium - 7 spec.
  • Hylocereus sp.
  • Lophophora - 1(2) spec.
  • Mammillaria - 19 spec.
  • Matucana - 3 spec.
  • Myrtillocactus geometrizans;
  • Opuntia - 4 spec.
  • Oreocereus trollii;
  • Ortegocactus;
  • Parodia - 4 spec.
  • Pediocactus simpsonii;
  • Pereskiopsis spatulata;
  • Rebutia - 9 spec.
  • Schlumbergera sp.;
  • Stenocactus - 3 spec.
  • Strombocactus disciformis;
  • Tephrocactus atriculatus;
  • Thelocactus - 3 spec.
  • Turbinicarpus - 5 spec.
  • Tunilla - 3 spec.
Succulents:
Aloe - 2 spec., Agave - 2 spec., Euphorbia leuconeura, Haworthia - 5 spec., Pachypodium - 4 kinds. Cold hardy stonecrops (Sedum) - 6 - 10 species.

I always look for some interesting mostly small globular cacti, not readily available and good for windowsills growing.
If your cacti mess in your job just forget about the job.
