    Thanks @MariaS :)

    Lemme know if you’re interested in any of the following trimmings. Collection only Rondebosch.
    - ludwigia repens
    - giant baby tears
    - salvinia (floating plant)
    - a bit of susswassertang left
    - mosses jumbled up at the moment: a bit of fissidens, Taiwan and java moss
    I’m keeping some baby tears for Logs but I have a ton so will be extra. Great plant that, bomb proof.

    Then also pond plants
    - hornwort
    - elodea
    - few small pieces of water lettuce perhaps
    - the salvinia is also good for ponds
    - can give away maybe a few more pieces of Berula erecta

    Pleasure, anytime from Tue pm onwards - pm me.
    There are actually a lot of people on the forum who share freely in whichever way possible- freebies, time & advice etc. I’ve gotten a lot that way myself! And plant freebies & trades are a nice way to get some species diversity, for example.

    Hi @JoJo the Hammer just a few strands left that have been lying in a container for a while. Have already given away most. Really don’t think it’s worth it...
    Why don’t you try @ShrimpNation he has beautiful invitro mosses and a wide selection.
    Or perhaps start a wanted thread to ask for freebies or trades in Jhb?

    It's almost impossible to get all the cool plants in at the moment :(

    If you are just looking for random mosses, I can probably pull a bag or two mixed stuff out of my tanks. They might need a trim anyway.
    Otherwise, let me know what you looking for so that I can add it to the list to bring in as soon as the imports flow again.

    hey Shrimp Nation! Thank you so kindly for the offer!!!-I see everybody is in the same boat at the moment. I'm looking for some random mosses-mostly Christmas,Flame and Pearl but I'm not hugely particular-I have had success with weeping moss and I'm keen to get some others going for my new setup. I can collect as I'm in Northriding, you just let me know price and amount you're willing to part with?

    Limnofilla sessiliflora (spelling??) - fast growing, not fussy about substrate but appreciates good light. Easy low tech stem plant.

    Collection Rondebosch
