    It sounds so strange and I know shipping can be expensive too but I will gve it a try--I am looking for some small/medium Leptosperum branches for mounting. For those living in CA or west coast, if you have extra for trade, I have plenty of blueberry branches available. The blueberry wood is good for mounting and I use them for a lot of my small orchids..., but few of my plants came with those Leptosperum wood and the plants seem to do well on it, so I like to try some more with the Leptos wood(AKA California tea wood?).
    Send me a PM if you are interested in the trade.

    I will trade orchids for those Leptos wood also if you are not too choosy about the plants. Let me know what you like to grow ans I will give you some selections.

    I use it a lot, it is great wood for mounting. We call it Tea Tree and it is native to New Zealand and/or Australia.

    No, that is from a different genus.
