I don't think you're nutty, but I have to chuckle.
All I ever read about is how people are struggling to keep their plants 

There seems to be a life and death struggle to keep aquatic plants alive 
and looking good. There is a struggle to stay ahead of unscrupulous 
sellers passing non-aquatic plants for aquatic. Our polluted lakes, 
rivers, and streams appear to be too much for the imported plants that 
need so much attention.

The plants I purchase don't seem to be on any "Import Danger", forbidden 

I'd be more worried about the walking catfish and iguanas that are 
taking over Florida, and the dying honey bee colonies, than a few 
delicate aquatic plants taking over our waterways.

I toss my plant clippings in the composter when done.
