I'd like to make a bit of room, so I have a few pings for sale.
First come first served. I have 3-4 of each, but some I have quite a few.
Please message me only instead of replying to this post.
I'll try to reply to all Friday evening.
I only bill for the actual shipping cost, so if it's just pings, ~$25ish. East coast might be a bit more.
Shipping from Sask.

$15 each unless noted.
gigantea
El Mirador
hemiepiphytica x gypsicola (small, so you get 2)
Weser
jaumavensis x emarginata "red"
moranensis (Regular size $15, I also have 2 large ones, $25 each)

Marciano (Regular size $15 but I also have 2 large ones $20 each)
Sold Out
Pirouette Sold Out
esseriana (One left) Sold Out
jaumavensis Sold Out
jaumavensis L90-14 (Small, so you get 2!) Sold Out
Aphrodite - Sold out
They are all various sizes.

Some are transitioning to sleepy time. I can tell the Marciano and El Mirador are going that way, but that's never a problem.
Just give them some time and they will wake up like Raymonds did! ----> Wakey Wakey

Wow, thank you everyone for all the interest in my pings!
I'll be busy with work until the end of the day, so I will get to any new messages later today.
Again, quantities are quite low now and I will accept new requests in the order they come.

I apologize if I run out of anything before I have a chance to update the list.

That one was some esseriana.
It's odd, but if you google esseriana, most of the pictures look like jaumavensis. But talking to a few other growers here and in the US they said they have "esseriana" that have both leaf types. Makes me wonder if some are a natural hybrid between the type I have and a jaumavensis.

@Zimmey reminded me that the post office is closed Monday with all the other federal buildings. I will drop the packages off on Tuesday AM, everyone should see by Friday at the latest. I will pack some today and more on Monday. I'm used to shipping 3-4 plants, so doing this many will be quite the undertaking for me.

I'll drop everything off at the post office today. I guess franchise post offices like the ones in shoppers drug Mart are open today and accepting packages. They won't enter the postal system until tomorrow.

Shout out to everyone who does this for a living or a major side business. These eight boxes that I packed took me 7 hours just to pack the plants and another hour to pack the boxes and make the labels.

Just a reminder that the El Mirador and Marciano are going into winter mode, so they might be a bit boring until they wake up again.

Nice work man. I know you pack the plants well. I've never had to do an order that large. Hopefully maybe in the future lol.

I actually really enjoy the process of packing and shipping. It's fun the send plants off to other people for them to enjoy! I clean off all the dirt and pick off all the dry leaves. But that many plants was tough o_O.
Still, I somehow enjoyed it all the way through. Now comes the waiting, to make sure they all arrived safe, and satisfactory.

Please message me if you have any problems!

Oh also, if you were the really luck ones to have some packing peanuts in your box for shipping protection, they are bio-degradable!
If they get wet, they dissolve into a goo. I think these ones are soy based. I've seen corn one as well, and have even eaten them. I'm still alive so I guess they're safe :D

Great job! Thanks for all your caring hard work and much appreciated Ping sale! You've always got work available here on Salt Spring if you want it ;)

I've made several plant purchases from members and suppliers since joining. Every one of the shipments were received in good shape. It was clear (especially from non-professional members) that much thought and energy went into carefully "swaddling" each plant and tucking them securely into sturdy packages. It's a lot of work! On the receiving end it's truly a delight when a parcel arrives carrying seeds, plants or supplies and with it the additional "gift of hope". Isn't that what keeps us growing?
