If you have any plants you'll trade or want, post it here. Only one rule applies: do not trade/sell plants that are/have recently been in a diseased tank!

Ooh - Java plants - I wonder if they'll eat them again...
I'll have to see what I can cultivate to trade - at the moment, all I have is some lovely Elodea!

Wishlist:
An impossible plant - one that sucks up nitrates like a hoover and my Koi CAN'T eat!

Oxy - grab yourself a crummy cheap filter, and put it in a big bowl/bucket tub. Fill it up, dechlor and chuck moss in.
Chuck miracle gro in every week after a waterchange, and I can guarantee that it will grow like the devil!
Obv make sure it has light lol - and before you put it in a tank, rinse it VERY well.

Bingo - easy mossgrowing.

i can do even better than that.. i have a spare filter as i had the whole hood replaced due to a faulty light :)
still generally a cheap crummy one but better than the worst cheap crummy one.
what would i do with it then tho? i dont have the paitence to let it take hold of something.

grow it loose! that's what i do and it looks a treat ^_^ one big con: you can't cultivate it into shapes... one big pro: don't have to worry about it!

&it's not that hard to grow it on something... take a porous roch or a piese of wood suitable for tank use, spread the fern losely over it and tie down with cotton or nylon string. if you're using cotton, it will disintergrate by itself, if you're using nylon, you'll need to cut it off after about 3-4 weeks.

got lots and lots of duckweed, hornwort and vallis to exchage atm! anyone interested, PM me ^_^
