I assume that the largeish plants only fit in the large box, Harpua?

In particular, I'm looking at:

Balansae
Red rubin
Bacopa
Congensis

Might be moot anyway since I don't think I can order for another 2-4 weeks...oh, and sizes in general would be helpful, but the towel and hand serve as some kind of reference. Beautiful plants.

Can you accept personal checks? If so I will probably buy quite a few from you

I'd really rather not do a check. I would consider a money order, as long as you are ok with me shipping after I receive payment. Keep in mind that I only ship Mondays, Tuesdays, and possibly Wednesdays to be sure the plants don't get stuck in the mail over the weekend... so if you mail a money order, it's going to take some time.

Do you not have Paypal? That's really the easiest way IMO.

midthought:
The balansae would fit in a small box, but the other plants are really pretty big, lol. I am pretty confident I can save you a little money on shipping cost with a medium box... I should be able to fit those plants in there (depending, of course, on how many of each you would want).

Is money order basically the same as cash? Our Paypal isn't working either, and I'm dying to get the plants! (actually now I might want Cryptocoryne lutea instead of petchii, lol)

Oh you edited so I didn't see this until just now. ;D I'm going to pm you when my exams are over and see what's left! My new lighting should be in by then too, so I should know whether my melting swords will survive this or not... >.<

Basically. You go and buy the money order and send it to me, and I go cash it. Postal money order would be awesome since I'll need to go the post office anyway, lol. Then I don't have to go to the bank and have them put a hold on an out of state check.
I really prefer Paypal but I understand that you're having Paypal issues and I'm totally willing to work with you on that.

Very cool! We can definitely see what I have available in a couple weeks. My tanks and plant tubs are absolutely stuffed with plants right now so I think we can work something out in a couple weeks.

Are any of these plants small enough to look good in a 10 gallon? I was thinking along the lines of Micro swords and Anubias nana (Crypts and bolbitis apparently too big), but do you have any suggestions?

Crypt lucens is the smallest crypt I have. Something like the retrospiralis or balansae would make a nice background plant for a 10. The anubias nana is a nice size for a 10, and so is the barterI growing in lava rock. The corkscrew val would look nice maybe in the middle or background, and the cardinal plant is pretty small, maybe it would be cool somewhere toward the front or middle.

Any plants that would be best for a planted tank beginner? I'm liking that lava rock stuff but many of the others, as well.

Anubias is literally an invincible plant that's very hard to kill. That plant on the lava rock is perfect for your tank.

If you're willing to occasionally dose ferts, then crypts will be a good mid-to-background.

I never dose ferts for crypts. Mine do great even when in regular gravel rather than planted tank substrate. The anubias in lava rock would be a great choice as well.

I *think* so, but we just bought it as "bacopa" so I can't be 100% sure. It's doing great under low-medium light and I've seen a lot of new growth out of it.

Does this get anchored somehow or does it literally float?

It just floats on the surface. Here is a pic:

The salvinia is the one with the smaller leaves, I have a ton of it. The larger one is frogbit, but right now I don't have any available.

A few ?:

Does it grow fast? This is for my 30 gallon. I want to get enough that it doesn't look silly.

Does it hang below the water at all? Or do roots and all lay on the surface?

This would work for my ancitipated stock? (kuhlis, GBRs, rummies)

You know, it's not often I feel like a complete virgin. I'm not sure I like it. :-X

P.S. I like the frogbit, too.

P.P.S. If I have top cover, are my other plants in the tank going to get enough light?

It grows really fast for me. The roots do hang below the water a couple of inches. I've never seen fish that didn't like floating plants so yes, it would work with your stock. You can thin out the amount of salvinia as you see fit, just scoop it out with your hand. If your plants aren't getting enough light, scale back on the salvinia.

I'll just charge $3 for what I can part with. It will grow in quickly, lol.
The new barterI in lava rock (and many others) should be here tomorrow or Thursday.
