Default Plant swapping

Hi all

As per a suggestion from this post by Urban Jungle, I decided to start up a thread where anyone can swap/trade/give-away plants.

Post up what you've got, what you want etc etc. Basically the same as the Fish Swap thread but concentrating only on plants.

Cheers,
Sam

Just a reminder that us Tassie boys can only trade with ourselves or send plants out. We cant receive them from interstate due to Customs laws.

I'm interested in getting some plants!

I need some like these ones on the RHS, they seem to be the only things that grow well in my tank... no idea what species they are - anyone got them???

My Java ferns have always got babies coming off them. Usually 3 or 4 leaves at 1-2cm long on each plant before they detach from the parent. Have about 6 atm if anyone wants them. You can figure out the postage from Chatswood if you have nothing to trade .

I figured we would send any plants in a clipseal bag with a bit of arir in it and then shove it into one of the expressed payed thingos at the post office?

Yeah i just put mine inside damp newspaper, then seal in a Glad lock bag and whack it in any envelope.

Good as gold

Ill have a shitload of crypts, some native snails, native milfoil and some Rotala SP green for trade/swap.

Can I put a placeholder on half a dozen crypts, and some rotala?

I just had a massive prune though. Haven't got much left to trade.

My planted tank is somewhat empty at the moment, tbh. My time and funds have been majorly diverted
