I want to come! It would be great to meet you all!

I have a LOT of Rotala rotundifolia (Rotala indica). I have 6 bundles over 20" tall with at least 15 stems each and 2 shorter bundles with at least 30 stems.

Please, someone tell me they could use some of it! Or a whole bunch of it! I should have enough to fill a lot of tanks.

Heys guys (and gal), I'm not going to be able to make it afterall. :(

I completely forgot about a "date" I planned with my 3 yr old (to go pick out a Christmas tree). I had already promised her to go this weekend.

I do have some plants I'd like to send though.
-Arthraxon sp ? (possibly mis-identified, may actually be in the Dayflower family) for Bhushan
-Echino. quadricostatus for TNguyen
-miscellaneous stem cuttings for whoever needs them

Could anyone swing by here to pick them up in the AM or meet me somewhere close to the East Side?

-Dave

Complexity,
I could use a few of the shorter Rotala. Just made some room for a few of them. See you there.:wave:
Great! I'll definitely have some for you. :)

Dave, do you know if anyone in the group lives in your area? I could do it if no one else can, but I have a feeling you're going to live quite a distance from me. Let me know if no one else can help out.

Dave, you're living on the wrong side of town. All the cool stores are over here. You know, they sell christmas tree on this side too. :D

Vicki, It'll be too much trouble for you to pick them up. We can alway wait for the next meeting. There really no hurry. Looking forward to meeting you. :wave:

You mean they sell trees ALLLLL the WAAAYYYYY Over THERE?! ;)

I'll keep growing these plants until January, then. I'll have plenty for everyone by then at the rate they are growing. :D

TNguyen, I honestly wouldn't mind. We were talking about meeting in that area so it wouldn't be out of my way. I'd just have to be there an hour early so I could give him some of my Rotala (I really, really want to get rid of my extras!).

So this month or next, no problem. If we met at a Starbucks with internet access, I'd be pretty happy for an hour no matter where I am. :)

BTW, about how many people usually come to these meetings? Just being curious so I'll have some clue before I get there.

Okay, we've worked it out. I'll meet Dave at the Starbucks at 59S and Cummins St. at 11:00am. That way he can share his plants with everyone at this month's meeting and I can get rid of... umm.. share my Rotala with him.

If anyone wants to come early, let me know. Otherwise, I'll see you all at the meeting!

Sounds good to me! Thanks. I may not seem it, but I am a little shy at times. It helps to know if I'm walking into a small group or a room of 30 people. :)

Wow, very cool we will have some new friends and also meeting old ones:p

At the very moment(yes, I am STILL awake at 1AM), I have torn down my semi-breeding tank of CRS that Luis has setup for me. Got loads of Anubias petite....and other 'cool crap', haha!

Well, Dave looks like I might have a hat for another month. Perhaps I can be at Starbucks at 11:00.
See you there if I can make it at that time. Bringing a bunch of Vals that I took out of tank last night and some pics for someone to identify what I might have in my tank.:D

Yea! I might have company while I'm waiting at Starbucks! If not, that's okay, but it would be fun. :)

Good to meet everyone! Sorry I had to :bolt: - got a reminder than I needed to be home by 1:30 pm.

Can someone post the "needs" for the upcoming Plantfest since I missed part of the discussion. Thanks!

Hope you guys are successful in prop'ing the UGs - in case they don't do well in my novice hands. Heck if it works we can start a cottage industry by growing them on wire mesh!

Sorry I missed it. At least I was able to get with The old man and Complexity beforehand and drop off the plants...and get my BlueBell hat back! :D

Vicki, thanks again for the Rotala. I got it planted and will get some pics posted tonight. At the rate things have been growing it should be ready for update pics in less than a month. :)

We wound up not cutting down a Christmas tree at the farm because the pre-cut ones were much prettier (and the same price). It sure looks bigger in the house than it did out there!!

Really a great meeting. Two new young girls, lots of plants and just sorry I missed the lunch. I had to get home and get my second manifold working on my other tank. I did it! Did not really need to increase the pressure as was told I might need to for running two with one needing about 20 feet of tubing. I think the second manifold was well worth it. Thanks for all the plants from everyone.
Dave, did the hat shrink any from me dipping out fish with it? :)
