For all of you who may live in Florida, or be interested in Florida Plants I ran
across a couple of interesting sources of information.
First is Aquatics Magazine. This is a magazine on aquatic plant management and
is not directed at the hobbyist but is nonetheless interesting.
To get this magazine you must join the Florida Aquatic Plant Management Society
which cost $20.00 and you get membership, the newsletter and Aquatics Magazine.
Check should be made payable to FAPM and sent to the Treasurer, Catherine
Johnson, 688 Andover Circle, Winter Springs FL 32708.
