    Hi guys, I'm looking for a tiny bit of each, if anyone has some to spare that they'd like to sell. I'm situated in Randpark Ridge but work in Fourways, so anyone in the area?

    Regarding the Pennywort, apparently there's more than one type? (Still trying to read up on this) But I've got a tiny tank so I need the shorter one that stays low to the ground. The leaf also doesnt have a slit on the side but forms a solid sircle. I might have gotten the name wrong so if anyone'd like to correct me I won't mind.

    If you'd like to swop, i have a buttload hairgrass and what i think is called pearl grass or baby tears? I've been trying very hard but I cant figure out it's name lol.
    It's this stuff on the floor and in the tub to the right:

    Hi.I just joined and have been going through the site and came across this post. i will gladly buy some earl grass or baby tears from you. Also i like the tiny heater you have in the tank. where did you get it and how many watts is it.
    Take care and regards.

    Hi Seann. I bought the heater from the petstore at lifestyle. I think its 50 watts. Will have to check. Unfortunately ive been trying for such a long time to give these plants away that i ended up throwing them in the bin as they were crowding my tank! But if you are close enough to pick up at my house i will give you some when i trim them? Grass you can have straight away as it grows like a mofo.

    Hi Ane. Thanks for info on the heater. I actually just ordered a few 25watt heaters off Ebay.They'll take a few weeks to arrive. As for the plants thank you so much for your kind offer, do let me know when you trim and I will come by and collect some. I am more than willing to pay for them. I I prefer buying from hobbyist who have success in growing plants. I find that plants bought from the LFS stores are harder to settle and start growing. i am waiting for some crypts to start propagating and hopefully will be able to bring some for you when the time arrives.
    Do take care.

    Thanks so much! Don't worry about paying me. I don't believe plants should be paid for!

    I would love a piece of crypt, so lets organize this for when you're ready to take a piece off for me?
    Looking forward.

    Not sure if the plants will last that long in a bag? If no one else comes and gets it before then its yours.
