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.

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
