Crypt (red one)
Crypt (giant one)
Glosso
Dwarf baby tears
Baby tears
Rotala rountifolia
Chistmas moss
Flame moss
Java moss
Fissidens
Susswassertang
Banana Lily
Tiger Lily
Nesaea pedicelleta
Riccia
Naja Grass
Micro sword
Anubisa coffee something or rather
Anubias nana
Anubias nana petite
Java Fern ... trident
Java fern Needle leaf
Dwarf pennywort ( I think)
Salvinia
Duckweed
Frogbit
Dwarf water lettuce
Water wisteria

I think that's it :D

I collect a lot of my plants from public waterways, I have so many different kinds. My favorites are: Red tiger lotus, Rotala indica, amazon sword, any kind of Cabomba, Cryptocoryne beckettii, melon sword, Eriocaulon setaceum, Java fern, narrow leaf java fern, parrot feather, water spangles, najas guppy grass, lots of annubis.

Big list aokashi! But I'm not entirely surprised, I bet they're all flourishing. I have the following:

alternanthera rosaefolia
anubias nana
cryptocoryne beckettii
cryptocoryne nevelli
cryptocoryne undalatus green
cryptocoryne willisi
elodea densa (anarcharis)
hygrophila difformis
hygrophila rosae Australis
lemna minor (duckweed)
fontinalis antipyretica (willow moss)
limnophila heterophylia
microsorum pteropus (java fern)
phyllanthus fluitans
rotala rotundifolia
salvinia natans
Süsswassertang
Utricularia gibba
vallisneris spiralis
vallisneris torta
vesicularia dubyana (java moss)

And loads of other non-aquatic plants

We should go to San Marcos and collect native species together I could always use more plants come spring, we can start back up plant grow outs next year! Town Lake is where I get a lot, but there are also a lot of little ponds around here, one being across the street from my neighborhood.

I buy some of my plants, I just get such large samples from the wild, and usually those grow the fastest.

I'm really starting to get into non aquatic houseplants, like peace lilly. Great for betta tanks and inside of filter media.

We could but I would much rather go in the spring when everything starts to grow again. I don't have enough high light tanks to house the amount I want to collect.

Hey. Don't forget about all of that hornwort I gave you a while back for a female. You might not have been there Alex but I traded A whole lotta plants for a Blue Dragon female that I still have with Rachel. How's the hornwort doing now?

Yeah. Spring sounds way better to me... I hate the cold and I doubt there will be a lot of plants
