    I'm looking to trade some of the species that I personally don't grow well simply because I cannot meet their cultural needs. Some of them were gifts, some were impulsive purchases. They are all adult plants, some of them have bloomed for me once or twice, but they definitely require winter night temps above 60F, probably above 62F would be ideal. The warmest part of my growing area is at 56-57F minimum nights in winter.
    I would trade for any species that I don't have and that can be grown intermediate or cool-intermediate. I can send pictures if needed.
    1. Angraecum platycornu - established, mounted, presumably blooming size.
    2. Bulbophyllum (Hapalochilus) cruciatum - specimen with 10+ pseudobulbs, bloomed for me once. Very interesting looking even when not in bloom!
    3. Bulbophyllum grandiflorum - blooming size, I've never bloomed it.
    4. Bulbophyllum longissimum - nice clone with large blooms. Was able to bloom it once in 4 years. The plant doesn't grow much and stays at 3 pseudobulbs due to my low temps.
    5. Bulbophyllum patens - recent gift, but I know it won't do well for me.
    6. Bulbophyllum reclusum
    7. Bulbophyllum sinapsis
    8. Bulbophyllum tridentatum
    9. Dendrophylax lindenii
    10. Diaphananthe pellucida - seedling(s)
    11. Eria obesa
    12. Paphiopedilum rotschildianum - I paid a lot for this near blooming size plant. It should bloom soon under the right conditions.
    13. Plectrophora calcarhamata - cute Brazilian mini with large yellow flowers.
    14. Schoenorchis gemmata - this one an intermediate grower and blooms well for me, I just lost interest in this species.
    15. Stanhopea ecornuta

    PM me if interested.
