| | LFS support
One big reason why I believe that the south Florida freshwater plant hobby is so small is that LFSes here simply don't cater for freshwater. Plant selection is poor, information is poor... and there is a general lack of interest to go on top of that.
To start promoting interest in the area, I think we should try making friends with one or two LFSes. We should try to setup some sort of advertisement and encourage them to post it in their store. Art, how much do you know about this process? I know next to none.
I can contact Ricky and Tim Cincotta of the DFW club for some help. The DFW club is truly a model club --very active, ambitious. They grew tremendously within a year to nearly 50 members and hosted an AGA convention! How cool is that?
