Welcome to helianthuslunaria's Member Page
I have traded before, did it for about three years but then became overwhelmed by life as we are wont to do sometimes. Keeping a balance is the theme of my life these days, and losing fear. I'm back, and keeping a healthy pace. Which is why there's no trade lists up, I'm really only ready to make offers at this point and not receive them.
I live in north central Texas. I don't have a very large garden, nor very healthy soil. Being that I'm still in school I can't take on a huge project as I'd like to ;) but I will one day. For now I garden in containers. I yearn for a greenhouse.
I love many plants, interesting and/or beneficial houseplants, african violets, orchids, passifloras, succulents, orchid cactus, fragrant like lavender, gardenia and jasmine. Vining plants. Anything exotic or weird. Anything useful (I'm an ethnobotany nerd) Any cup of tea is my cup of tea... jasmine tea, mint tea, lemon balm tea, saffron tea, roselle tea, green tea... you get the picture. Anything that attracts birds, bees, and flutterfbys, or any of the natural world (I'm a biodiversity nerd). I may love a yellow rose bush, but not care much for a yellow lily. Or love a pink lily and not care for a pink rose (true story). Austin roses make me think of Jane Eyre and the like, and then I get all "must collect them". I love name associations and striking color contrasts (but not black and white usually). I'm a mixed bag with no set rules who really will try anything I haven't tried before.
I don't have awesome success with seeds or cuttings yet (I blame other things, because my fingers are all green not just my thumbs) so I prefer plants, but will trade same for same, and it doesn't stop me from trying them when it's something I want enough.
