I've traded now a few times with Xanthoparmelia who's a knowledgeable grower of a wide variety of CPs (seriously, check out that grow list!). Last year he generously offered me a variety of plants that weren't performing to his expectations for the cost of postage. As a result I got some very cool hybrids that are gaining steam and I look forward to what they may do this grow season.

This year we hand-picked a few of our preferences from each other's grow lists and coordinated an early spring trade. Each trade has been well-packaged with a thoughtful extra included - this one was no exception. And I'm super happy with the healthy plants and growing knowledge he shared - and am already looking forward to the next trading opportunity!

I've had the same experience, he sent me culls for postage. Some of these that would have ended up on his compost heap have done very well.
He has included a couple to see how they do in Tennessee because we both got a Sarr from Madrone last year that did well for him, but ran for me.
So far, his culls are growing nicely, and a couple are putting up flower stalks.
