Where to start? Tropical plants are one of the joys of living in what’s considered a tropical growing zone. If you’re fortunate to live in one of those zones. you’re surrounded with some of the world’s most exotic and unusual plants. If you’re living in zones where tulips and lilac return after the rigors of winter, your tropical plants grow in pots inside during the fall and winter, then outside during the few months of summer. Either way, you’re in love with big, leafy elephant ears and alocasia, orchids, heliconia, jade vines, amorphophallus…anything that requires you fight a tiger to acquire it. Volumes could be written about gardeners who tackle out-of-zone growing situations, the winning and losing of the battles, the joys of resounding success, the cherished photo of a flower so strange it defies description or belief.
Many tropical plants are expensive, because of the finding, gathering, propagation and shipping of them. Many of us have found and gathered, and now we have 45 of the danged things! Nobody needs 45 of anything unless its Daffodils and Daylilies on a hillside. So, if you have 300 elephant ears, its time to thin the ranks, pop a few in a box and ship them to another gardener just itching for ears. Make some room for the Rain Lilies by pulling a few tubers here and there. List them in an ad here…you might get a surprise! Maybe your offer will have you communicating with a gardener who’s up to their knickers in MIckey Mouse Ears or Amorphophallus Titaniums (I wish).
We’re going to keep it simple in this category, because there are so many kinds of tropical plants. Aside from basic information, feel free to ad up to 25 words that better describe your plant (if you need to).
With that said, it’s time to list your donation of tropical plants.
