    Hey guys, I'm back on a limited basis and have some extra plants if anyone was wanting some easy low light plants. Here is a link to an article I put together on getting started with plants...
    How To Set Up a Low Light Low Tech Planted Tank

    I can ship anywhere in the continental US for $7 via USPS priority mail. You need to be able to receive your plants promptly so they don't bake in your mailbox (mini oven in high temps). All of my plants are easy to grow and great for any beginners, I can help with any advice needed. I can also make variety packs based on a dollar amount you want to spend. I always try to include extras and I hand pick the clippings on shipping day.

    Here is what I currently have, but subject to change at any moment...

    mixed moss (Christmas and Java mosses) - $5 per golf ball size portion

    subwassertang (wavy ribbon like bushy, moss-like plant) - $5 per golf ball size portion

    ludwigia (nice pink, light red highlights) - $2 per 4" stem

    dwarf sag (small grass like blades, 2 inches long) - $2 per node

    Italian/leopard valisnera (longer grass like blades with brown "leopard" spots) - $2 per node

    bronze cyrpts (nice rosette plant, with brown/bronze color) - $4 for small 2"-3" plantlet, $6 for larger 5"-6" adult plant

    hornwort (bushy plant can be grown as floater, does great in hard water, high PH) - $2 per 4-5" stem

    cholla wood 4" tubes (natural wood from desert, will sink to bottom, has holes, looks nice, good for shrimp or plecos) - $2 each or $5 with small portion of moss or subwassertang tied on top

    Shoot me a message with any questions, I prefer to ship on weekend or Monday/Tuesday. Thanks for looking.

    I'm back on a limited basis and have a few extra plants if anyone is interested. Temps seem to be good now, shipping to most northern states is risky in the winter.

    @Keystone - yes, I still have most everything available. been busy, and away from the site for awhile, but I check in every now and again. Send me a private message if interested. Thank you.

    Still have most everything available, shipping out this Monday. Time to get shipments in while the weather is still nice. Also have a large portion of moss to sell if anyone interested. Will do baseball size portion for $5, very healthy mostly Christmas moss with some java mixed in. Shoot me a private message if interested.

    Thank you.

    Can you send a picture of the cholla wood and a guesstimate of dimensions?

    Do you still have the moss? Is it snail/pest free? I'd be interested if it is and you still have it.

    My tank is not snail free. I have Malaysian trumpet snails and pond snails which are both beneficial in their own ways. There are snail dips you can do to treat most plants effectively. I prefer the alum method. 3 tablespoons in 1 gallon of water, and soak plants mixing around well for 30-60 mins or so. Alum is found at some supermarkets or walmarts, in the spice section.
