Looks like we should have more or less a half-dozen people. Good size for a group, we can stuff ourselves into two cars I'll drive one, since I know where we're going - any volunteers for the other driver?

Oh me too. We might also get 2-3 more people (the pool guys that came in during the last meeting). But they'll call me tomorrow to let me know.

I'm coming on Saturday!!! But I need to leave early and be home around 4:30pm... You know in-laws, can't stay too long with their grandchilds (in my case, they get bored easily)... Well, it's better than not coming, right?!

So I may have to drive my own car too going to our destinations... And I'll bring my dslr camera and take some pictures of our collecting trip because I'm not planning to dive into the water or get wet because of the above statement

So Michael, If you can, please bring some Elatine Triandra clippings... I'd like to try that plant in my 37gal NPT... Do you want any plants that you'd like me to bring in exchange??? Gracias in advance!

And yeah, we'll finalize our Seachem bulk order too on Saturday... See you there!

Yup I'll bring some for you. I'll also bring some Polygonum Kawag. and some other stuff.

I can't really remember what types of plants you have. I mostly want driftwood for my 180g tank, so I'll bring a saw or two. I think I'll also bring my own car to the place as well since I don't want to muck up anyone else's nice car with dirty branches.

Awesome, thanks!

Hmmm, good question... You can check my current FS thread (https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...t-package.html) for reference on SOME of my plants

I invited a girl from work named Kristina, she said she'd come along when she got off at 2:30 (I figure we'll still be going over the group order idea then, anyway).

Michael, could I bother you for some Elatine triandra as well (is it emersed or submersed, btw)? I'm still being all rampantly collectoritis-ish and all. If you have any spare cuttings from that Staurogyne sp. 'Low Grow' I'd love to get my hands on that, too, and maybe the Ludwigia senegalensis? Basically I just want to get my hands on anything I don't already have :P S.O.P. for me, lol.
I'll give you a nice branch of my corkscrew willow in exchange, if you want. The plecos love to chew on the bark of it

I'll also bring along some stuff from the tanks of mine we won't be seeing (i.e. like the ones in my bedroom, for instance), but other than that if I have spares in the tanks we will squint at, I'll trade them

As for the muddy driftwood pieces, you could always bring a black trash bag to wrap them up in. Mind you, nothing big enough to require a trash bag is going to fit in my car, but it's a thought if you want to hitchhike with someone or avoid mess in your own car. :P And, for the record, my car is not "nice" by any stretch of the imagination.

Hey John, I'm interested in the Triflora and Sphaerocaryum Malaccense. Is there anything else other then the elatine that you are interested in?

Ok, will bring you those plants later.

Hmmm, I think I'm all set with the elatine for now, got no more room/space if I get more! But if you still have lindernia dubia, I may have a nice spot for it

See you all there!

There's ALWAYS more space for plants! It's just that you might need to buy another tank and/or evict your kid to access it.

In other news, I posted a photo on the ID board of a stem plant we'll be encountering today that I don't recognize. Anyone know what it might be?
