Don't worry about the swap. I'll just send you some. I've got enough crypt to last me a long time! LOL!
You are too sweet. I wish my swords had done better so I'd have some for you. They are still in there and still have green leafless stems but will not grow new leaves. One leaf stayed green for a long time and is now starting to brown on the edges. I think they are getting nibbled as they try to grow. Can't believe they've stayed green, but I won't give up on them so long as there is green there.

If anyone in the UK has some cuttings around it would be much appreciated. Just setting my tank up again after a few years absence from the hobby. I've donated a fair few swords, crypts and things in the past on here when my tank was up last. :)

I can send you a couple of baby Crytp. wendtii 'brown', one small Vallis. and one small Lindernia rotundifolia. Once you get your plants up and growing, something I don't have yet would be appreciated in return! PM me if you're interested.

please guys, remember this isn't a begging thread. It's purely for donations.

Glad you got it and it was in good shape! It's fun stuff. You can anchor it along the bottom as a runner, let it grow from bottom to top, and it will also run along the water surface.

OBIE1, what have you got in exchange? Also, try the Bristol Tropical Fish Club, most of the members keep planted tanks.

I have:

Elodea canadensis
pennywort
java moss

I'm willing to send off the whole works for $6, or $6 per package It costs me between $5-10 to send each package, so if you want it all you'll be getting a great deal!

just remember guys this is donations only. If you are selling please use the other forum. If it's to cover postage than that fair enough. :good:


Can i also reiterate to the other posters in this thread that the thread cannot be used for scrounging plants.

Please read the rules

i shall be cleaning the thread up (again) tomorrow.
