This grower is fairly sure of this plant identification.

I usually have many avocado plants of various sizes, from sprouting seeds to matured, so get in contact to arrange a swap.

    In the spring, I usually have too many vegetable seedlings. I also have quite a few avocado pants and oleander cuttings.

    I would like any fruit plant that can be grown in pots or any nice house plants. I'm on the hunt for any nice succulents.
