WTT or WTB: Emersed Plants!

So, I'm in a collecting mood (as usual) and am looking to get some new goodies for my emersed tubs. I'm not looking for any one particular species, though, just something I don't currently have. I've got a soft spot for unusual plants - things that you can't get everywhere - and ones that look interesting. Not a huge fan of Erios, they never do well in our local liquid rock :p I'm only looking for specimens that are already emersed, though. Roots are a bonus but not strictly necessary, except for plants with crowns LOL. I like stems and foreground species best, but wouldn't argue a nice sword or crypt... U.S. natives from down south would be lovely, too.

I'm willing to offer up in trade cuttings/babies of my own emersed plants, or anything you see in my sales thread. Among my less-than-common emersed specimens are Staurogyne sp. 'Porto Velho', Poaceae sp. 'Purple Bamboo', Gratiola aurea, Lindernia grandiflora, and Lindernia dubia. I also have some common fare like Alternanthera reineckii, Bacopa monnieri and B. caroliniana, Micranthemum umbrosum, Ludwigia palustris, Lysimachia nummularia 'Aurea', and a couple of Echnodorus plantlets. Oh, and a handful of baby Zephyranthes candida (rain lilies) if you're looking for something for a pond or paludarium. :)

October 2nd in Westport, CT. NAS annual show/auction; the auction starts at around noon. :D
The Jersey thing - I'm guessing you mean the NJAS Aquatic Weekend - is Oct. 21-23... I've not yet decided whether I'm going, mainly due to the fact that I hate driving anywhere near the city. XD

Whether you go camping or auctioning, have fun! LMK if you're going to the auction, though, we'll figure out some stuff to swap. I have baby marmorkrebs if you're in an invert-y mood.
I have some emersed grown Lindernia Rotundifolia 'Variagated' and C. Wendtii 'Green Gecko' that should be ready ship in the next week or so if your interested.
I have plenty of L. rotundifolia (though it's lost its variegation since it's grown from seed), but the green gecko would be neat to have. Would you be interested in trading for anything in particular?

Im am interested in emersed grown plants of just about any kind.

The only plants I have available emersed are crypt. wendtii though, I believe bronze var.

If you have any emersed plants you arent interested in trading for crypt. wendtii let me know what you want for what.
I have plenty of wendtii growing submersed, but an emersed one would save me the time of converting it. I wouldn't mind trading with someone looking to expand their own collection :) Maybe for one of my more prolific stem plants? Bacopa monnieri looks pretty cool, grows like a weed, and has some interesting medicinal properties. Or, I have a lifetime supply of golden creeping jenny (plant it in your yard and you will too! it makes an attractive ground cover). :p
Oooh, what kind of Hydrocotyle? I have H. verticillata already, but if it's H. leucocephala I'm definitely interested. :D

I have lots and lots of emersed stems. Some rarer than others. Not much in the way of crypts, though. The vast majority of my crypt collection involves C. wendtii, mostly of the 'De Witt' variety. But I'm experimenting with some new aroids now, so who knows what the future may bring :mrgreen: On the other hand, if you like sword plants, I do have some neat varieties of those :D
