Because they can't make any money if you collect them yourself...........

There is nothing wrong with IAL and they really don't cost that much and some people feel safer using the IAL because they may not know how to tell the difference in leaves or they live in an area that is polluted or pesticide are used.
I live on virgin land and we are naturalist so I am 99.9% sure in the safety of my leaves, water, bugs, dirt...etc...that I use in my tanks, if I lived in town I am not sure I would use anything I found on the ground close to a road.........

I didnt see any the first time but it was the second time I put in the new leaves it only took a few days. Could have been they were starting to mold before I put them in but I checked them before hand & never saw any. Thats why i decided to make the tea.

I have my IAL folded and placed in my filters. That way i can replace if needed and I check regularly.

Hi members,

I just joined today and though I might be a bit too long for some answers but it's worth trying out.

Another obtion for folding the IAL is to have them in Tea Bags. Take a look at my site at Catappa Leaves Online Store. How to Use The Leaves ? and read about the Indian Almond Leaves in Tea Bags.

I only buy IAL if I have money to burn; I don't make them a top priority.
