You must be an IPS Member and designated as such on PalmTalk to list items (start topics) here. If you are an IPS Member, you must request this designation. It is not automatic. Contact the Moderator.
IPS Members may not list items for sale from non-member third parties. When discussing new acquisitions, deals, or availability of palms/plants, please refrain from mentioning the names of Big Box stores, nurseries, or other outlets that are not IPS Members. Third parties will be permitted to mention the source, price, or availability of plants, seeds, or garden related products in the course of normal Forum discussions if directly acquired from or offered by IPS Members only. Promotional intent or language by third parties should be avoided.
All palms/plants/seeds offered for sale must include a price and size/quantity. Photos are encouraged. For larger venues or sales, such as nurseries, a link to a price list or a promise of listed prices "at the door" are required. Listings will be removed 60 days after the original posting unless otherwise requested.
The IPS provides this subforum as a courtesy to all those interested in palms.

I am a new member of this group and my search for Ficus Benghalensis got me to this forum.
For the last 3 to 4 years I am trying to grow a bonsai out of a banyan tree cutting. When I last came to Florida in 2017, I was able to get 4 or 5 cuttings. However, none survived. I even got some from Hawaii a month ago but I think I got impatient and they are not surviving.
As you have mentioned Ficus Benghalensis in your posts, I wanted to make a request. Is there a way you can help me get a few cuttings which I can then use to grow bonsai here in New York at my home? As a child in India I have grown climbing these trees and having a small plant at home will definitely bring a lot of Joy. I do intend moving to Florida ultimately so that I can grow all tropical plants in my backyard but retirement is far away ...I suspect another 15 years.
Of course, I am happy to pay for shipping and other costs. You may find my request strange, as I just joined the group. However, I see no harm in asking as I am very very keen on having this plant grow in my living room.
I can share my email and other details, if you think you can help me.
