For anyone coming to the meeting, I collected some samples today while in Nacogdoches. If they survive until the meeting I will bring them for whomever wants to give them a shot (I have absolutely no room in my tank right now...I'd LOVE to keep the Ludwigia, but I don't have enough filtration to drive enough CO2 diffusion to allow me enough light to keep them).

A word of caution, L. pilosa and Gratiola sp. are not easy plants. They need CO2 and high light. Here is a link to what I found:

Oh, and please don't ask me to reserve any particular plant...just wait till the meeting and we'll see what lives or not. OOH! OR, we could auction them off...like our very first fund raiser!

True dat, Kev! Yeah, it might be better in the long-run if we get him those plants to grow out so they can reproduce instead of just having the few stems that might not make it.

Is College Station close enough? I thought about driving to the Dallas club but 4 hours one way eats up a day. If I wasn't looking at a new appartment tomorrow I would make the drive to Houston. Are there going to be monthly meetings going forward?

College Station is close enough if you are willing. Heck, Florida is close enough to be a HAAPS member...all you gotta do is join up.

Yes, we'll hold monthly meetings on the 4th Saturday of each month.

Thank you to those who showed up today. Looks like we have a good start to HAAPS. we got a lot of the details worked out today, got to see some friends and had a good time. The new ADG facility is coming along very well and Mike may have talked me into some new led lights.

Membership was discussed and we agreed upon for $10 per year per person. Membership does have benefits up to and including a discount from ADG

We will have our next meeting on March 26. Topic location and time will be posted later.

Please note that the April meeting will probably be a field excursion for collecting to be discussed at the March meeting

Dave,

The Potamogeton is now in my 30g and Proserpinaca pectinata in my 3g NPT. We'll see what happens.
