Want To Sell Free Plants (Just Pay Shipping)

EDIT: Original post has been edited for the free plants, as well as an updated list of the plants I have left.

I'm starting to break down all my tanks, and I need to get rid of a lot of plants. I tried selling but I'd preferably like to pass them on more quickly. I also have another thread going for tanks, equipment, food, etc. So, the plants are free if you pay for shipping. If you'd like to add a little extra for me, then I'd really appreciate it! I just want to pass on some of my stuff to a community that has taught me so much for the past 4 years

Each plant varies in size, please PM me to request pictures of specific plants. Some plants also have algae or may have some small holes in the leaves due to nutrient deficiency. I'll make you aware in case any of these plants have these issues.


Shipping on plants should be $3-5 first class. If I run out of envelopes to ship with, then I may need to pause shipping until I get some more. I know it's getting cold for some of you (can't really relate in Arizona lol), so I recommend picking up the package and bringing it inside as soon as it arrives.

Plants:
Subwassertang- no longer available
Bacopa
Ludwigia repens
Various rotala species (rotundifolia, macrandra, and Vietnam h’ra)
Creeping Jenny- no longer available
Hygrophila corymbosa siamensis
Rosette Sword- 1 left
Vallisneria- no longer available, unless I find any that I somehow missed lol
Large anubias- 1 available
Small Java fern- 2 available

**Please note my tanks have pest snails, but I will do my best to remove them before shipping**

Bought 7 vals from maximum 3 months ago They have multiplied into 40ish. I have moved out all but 2 of my bigger plants in my main tank because I love how it looks with all the vals.

Wow, I'm so happy to hear that!! It's crazy how fast they can grow and multiply

You're all good When in the upward position (2nd pic), it's about 1 ft long on the base and 18 inches (this part is harder to measure) from the tip of the tallest branch. At it's current size, it's too big for a 5 gallon, I've had it in a ten gallon shrimp tank but it won't fit a tank smaller than that unless you cut it. Are you in AZ? I've been looking into ways to ship it but meeting up locally would be way easier. My workload is pretty busy at the moment and unfortunately I don't know when I'll have the time to run down to the post office to see how expensive it'll be to ship.

Thank you, I really appreciate it! Let me know if you ever need any plants I might do future packs a little bit cheaper since I need to downsize my plant tanks soon

Bump. Plants are now 50 cents a stem with a minimum of $5 an order. If you request it, I may be able to throw in an extra plant or few.

How much bacopa, ludwigia repens, and rotala rotundifolia do you have?

Hello, I'm interested in any plants you have left. I'm not picky about the specific plant, just one of whatever is left? And you don't have to worry about removing any pest snails, they don't bother me.

Okay, you're next in line after Prest12 lol. Please be patient with me, I'll try to get through everyone as fast as possible. I should get back to you this weekend, today is really busy.

I got your message! I can get back to you on shipping, but it'll probably have to be Priority since it's likely the package will be over 16 oz. I'll reserve the BacterAE and Shrimp Lollies for you, but I won't be too active on Fishlore because today is pretty busy.

I'll start making a list of everyone in order and get back to you guys as soon as possible! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Hi guys! Just as a quick update: I've run out of shipping envelopes so I'll need to get some before I can ship more plants out. Most of the plants have already been taken, but I'll notify those who are waiting for plants when I have the rest available. Thank you!

I'd like to receive any and all plants left. I don't want to be a plant hog, but my tank is SOOO empty! Thanks!

Hi guys, unfortunately I'm out of plants for the time being. If any mod would like to lock this thread, please do so. If I have any plants left in the future, I'll make an updated thread when the time comes
