Rare plants for [Redacted]
Well Folks, I am back after a long hiatus and neglect of my plant duties.
Honeymooned in Grenada and found some cool algae eater / killie looking fish
in the rain forest -- stupid camera didn't work though!
Plant growth while I was gone was amazing, and all my tanks are algae free
still -- I must admit that I am now a big proponent of the "less is more"
style of fertilization. I used to have huge problems with green spot/dust
algae and have virtually had none since I began cutting down on my macro
Anyhow, I just trashed a TON of excess growth in my 60G tank and Cavan
reminded me that some of my plants that I tossed might be desirable [Redacted]. So, I am putting out a feeler to see if
anyone is interested in the following:
-Rotala nanjenshan (used by Amano and rare in US)
-Rotala rotundifolia 'green' -- like R. indica but stays green!
-Gratiola specs. -- same as used by Jeff Kropp and other members of the West
Coast Plant Mafia.
-Lobelia cardinalis - true dwarf form
Like I said, I just did a big hack and tossed much of the plant material,
but it will bounce back in a few weeks as I get my tanks ready for the AGA
Feel free to reply to me via email as my following of the list is quite
spotty. Most likely I will be auctioning the plants off on Aquabid [Redacted]
Also, Wayne Wah of Singapore sent me many moons ago some of the famous
"mini-Riccia" [Redacted], complete with the stainless
steel screens used by our Asian plant folks to create nice lawn effects.
The riccia was in bad shape after a screw up by the post office, but I think
I might be able to finally auction it off in a few more weeks - along with
the screens. I am going to first verify that the riccia I have is the mini
kind and not the regular stuff.
