Does anybody in New York City have Eusteralis Stellata to sell? I've never tried to grow it but I hear that it doesn't ship well. Three or four cuttings would be nice. I can meet you at your convenience for a pick up.
Thanks.

Well, I haven't had any luck so far with this request. Does anyone know if this plant will survive being in the mail for two days? If so, does anyone have any to sell me or info for a reliable seller?

Don't know about the shipping survival rate of this plant, but if you decide to risk it give this shop a try. Just called them and they have Eustria Stella in stock. It's located in San Francisco and always has a great selection of plants. The owner is very knowledgable and has alot of information to share. Just have to get past his accent when using latin names.

If it comes from a good source it will survive a week in the mail no problem. I've been shipping this plant to other hobbists for about a year now and have never had any problems, I've also kept it in plastic tubs for a week before shipping it. The major issue with ordering this plant from a store is that most do not have the right conditions to keep it healthy and alive, so by the time it is shipped it's already in a terrible state. It will loose many needles but in no way does that mean it's dying.

I did a major pruning recently and sent all of mine out, I only have a couple stems at the moment, if you are still looking for this plant in about a week when it's time to cut them back again I can send it to you. I'm in north Philadelphia.
