I have some prolific aponogetons- they're a little bit young to let go of, though! I had to trade the parent plant because those and my radican swords were busting out of my 10-gallon. I grew them under medium/high light with yeast-brew CO2 (10mg/L CO2 constant), but they also do very well in low light with ambient CO2 only, maybe just reproduce slower.
If you're still in need in a few weeks I should be able to help you out.
@hornedtoad: it sounds logical that there would be abundant flora here in Hawaii, but like Natalia is saying, if you get caught with the wrong plant by the wrong people you could have a very bad day. It seems to me like there's very few, if any, native freshwater plants and/or fish. Not that there's no flora and fauna in the freshwater bodies here, it's just all been introduced, legally or otherwise. Aloha!
