I can positively identify the entity in that video as Michael. His accent is South African, though, I think...

I'm not sure if I can. I'll certainly try though. They are really nice and unusual. Definitely would be new to the hobby as far as I know.

Even that Hydrocotyle looks different that what we normaly seen here which they are so small and short, really want to get some of that.

Yes they do look a bit different. I'm not sure if it grows underwater. I found it about 1 foot away from the river where it was being splashed constantly. I think the plant is in its emersed form now, but again, I'm not sure if it will convert if submerged...

I'm back in the US for a few days (until Jun 2nd) then I'm off to South Korea for a few weeks.

Welcome back! Did you get the plants home safely?

I bet there'll be interesting plants in SK, too... it'd be fun to look for some native aroids or something (do they have crypts that far north?)... or even maybe some kind of wild ricefish or something.... or - OOH! - maybe some wild Amano shrimp or other Caridina species! Better pack a breather bag and some Purigen just in case!

Yes I got the moss back. The other plants didn't do well in the bag for so many days. Now the real problem is if the moss will survive... Maybe in a few weeks when I get back I'll have some to sell/trade.

Also... I couldn't find the breather bags at home. I'm not sure where they got to, and the ones I took to Argentina I gave the to my girlfriend to bring back. But hey - its South Korea! I'm sure they have breather bags or something like that. If not, I can probably just order myself some and post them to where I'll be staying.
