Free Plants (Updated) - Page 3

Floundering_Around

I'll take all types of java fern and some rotala if you have any left. If you have any moss, that would be appreciated too. Didn't realize you were waiting on me to send my address, my bad
 

julifhy

I was wondering if there are any free plants still available? If there are, which ones are available?
 

Troyee219

I would also like to know, i am interested in any type of moss, i think i am too late though...

5/29 Update:

I have a few plants left to send out this weekend, if you've sent me a request (and an address) via PM I'll try to get a tracking number to you as well when they go or are about to be picked up.

Going to take a shipping hiatus in June I believe, but if you're interested in free plants after that (potentially towards the end of the month) please send me a PM and while I may not reply until mid-late June I will get back to those interested!

Plant List (unless melt or strange happenings occur) for late June/July:

-Salvinia Minima - aka floating fern, ak Water Spangles - I have a bucketful or two, I will ship anyone as much as they want
(Keep in mind Salvinia itself is a banned plant in 4 or 5 states, but only Texas has banned even Salvinia Minima outright, I won't ship it there, and if you choose to get rid of it from your tanks, in any state, please throw it away or let it dry/die in the sun - it's ability to self propagate is great in our fish tanks but not great in the wild)

-Narrow Leaf Anacharis (Egeria Najas) - Great for Betta tanks!
I have a lot of this as well, the more I trim it the more it grows.
I cannot ship it to CA but most other states are ok, Egeria has other types that are not allowed in several states (incl. Oregon) but Najas is banned only in CA as far as I know

-Rotala Rotundifolia (Ceylon as best can be figured out)
This one is nearly as happy as the Anacharis, and grows out rather quickly so I have plenty of it! Great for fry tanks, Bettas, and any where you have some height that needs filling in.


- Hygrophila difformis aka Water Wisteria

- Ammannia (Gracilis & Senegalensis, they are so alike I can barely tell them apart - Red & Orange)

- Java Fern, Trident, Narrow Leaf & Windelov (Plantlets mostly)

- Dark Red Ludwigia (Ludwigia repens) - in small quantities

- Needle Leaf Ludwigia (Ludwigia arcuata) - in small quantities





4/15 Update:


I'm not shipping out as quickly as I'd like (Shelter in Place is causing more upheaval than not in some ways), but I am shipping out for free, to anyone who wants/needs plants.

If you want ANY of these plants over the next 2-4 weeks (that's about how fast I'm shipping out, keeping in mind all the plants are in staying submersed this entire time) please send me a PM with what you'd like, your name & address or email address and I'll respond as quickly as I'm able.





FYI - I do have fish, shrimp & snails in every tank, though some of the plants go through a 'quarantine' here in plant only conditions for app. 2 weeks before I'm shipping, there is a chance they will bring something with them wherever they go (snail eggs in particular, they came to me from the Plant shops and they go out on the plants no matter how much I rinse them) - you may want to quarantine the plants or rinse them in a solution of your choice for cleaning before placing in your fish tanks.



These are all from my current running tanks, not plant only tanks. I’ve had no fish/invert health concerns in these tanks for 6+ weeks.
There is small possibility of hidden snail eggs though I will do all I can to remove them.

Do you have any plants left?
 

AquEric

I'll take all the stem plants you can send me I have MTS so can handle quite a bit pm me and I'll give you my address
Thank you AquEric

I messaged her about moss, she said she didn't have any, then i asked for wisteria and maybe some pygmy chain swords, and haven't got a response since i sent it over 2 weeks ago...

I messaged her a month ago too. I know she mentioned in another thread that she's having health issues, so let's all be patient
 

BeardedTetra

The state of this world baffles me.

She's giving away stuff, and people fuss that she's not doing it fast enough or according to their schedules.

Stop and think about how many messages this thread generates to her inbox and be thankful that's she's even still doing this instead of expecting her to put her life on hold to give freebies to selfish, impatient, ungrateful whiners.

Sorry guys, that rubbed me the wrong way

Thats not what im saying at all, so don't go calling names, i was just waiting for a response, and curious and no im not fussing or being selfish or doing this trying to rush her, just trying to figure out whats going on, so i don't appreciate you calling me a selfish impatient whiner, stop assuming things, i wasn't aware of the health issues, thanks for telling me FishGirl, and not being a jerk about it.
 

BeardedTetra

I didn't expect you to appreciate it. I wasn't seeking approval, just speaking my mind

So just to clarify you will pay shipping?!

I'm pretty sure Troyee219 wasn't meaning to push her. But I do agree with this, if someone was being a selfish, impatient, ungrateful whiner

Well, yes, health issues have been sidetracking me to say the least.

My tanks aren't getting the care I was hoping they would but I'm trying to make sure the basics are done at least. The plants are nearly out of control again but I'm not able to ship just yet. Maybe August will bring about a change for the better.

(Not to get too personal but I'm having major spinal & leg issues that are unexpected to say the least and standing, sitting, walking and even lying down can be difficult and very painful, so carefully pulling plants and reorganizing tanks has not been possible - and shipping 10-20 packages of plants is really out of the question, its tedious and time consuming {just cleaning 7 tanks every week is a major task right now})

I don't get all of the updates to this thread or even to private messages for some reason. But I do try to check in.

As someone who has suffered from severe back pain for years, you have my utmost sympathy. Not only the constant pain, but when your back gives out, your whole body is often completely out of the game and the psychological effects can easily break you down. You focus on getting better. We'll keep you in our thoughts and prayers.

Well i hope you get better, no need to worry about shipping out all the plants, get better and take care of yourself first, and that's weird that your not getting private messages, maybe ask a mod, they may be able to help, my grandma has spinal problems and knee problems, just from seeing and talking to her i know how you must feel, get better!

Thank you. It isn't an easy adjustment to make, and I've had health issues most of my life. But having one of the 'last' things one can do somewhat normally slipping away, and at a time when even the mneh healthcare isn't available, is jarring.

Thank you! And about the messages it's been ongoing since the site had some updates a while back, I get email updates for random threads I responded to once 6 months ago but not for threads I started, or for some private messages but not others. Maybe down the line I'll figure it out but.. *shrug*


C'est La Vie.
 

FishGirl115

Hello. I hope you're feeling better. Are you doing okay with the smoke over there? Are you shipping again?
 

Evergreen2

I would be interested in any and all plants you have! Hope you get better soon!
 

ArowanaQueen

How are you holding up now?
 

Troyee219

It says she was on yesterday, i hope that means things are doing better, just keep praying for her!
