    Talking WTB ALL Native Aponogetons AND other native plants

    Hi all,
    Iím trying to get my hands on quite a few different native plants and aponogetons, hereís a rough list:
    Aponogetons:
    Aponogeton tofus
    Aponogeton euryspermus
    Aponogeton vanbrugennii
    Aponogeton bullosus
    Aponogeton proliferus
    Aponogeton elongatus
    Aponogeton lacesmithii
    Aponogeton cuneatus
    Any Native Mosses
    I.e Different fissidens types, star moss, etc etc.
    Stem Plants
    Rotala mexicana (green/red variant, whatever)
    Rotala occultiflora
    Limnophila brownii
    Limnophila australis
    Potamogeton tricarinatus
    Staurogyne leptocaulis
    Limnophila chinensis
    Najas tenuifolia

    Unfortunately it seems like most of these plants were available a few years ago but have since disappeared... If you even have any of these and arent planning on selling or might know someone that might have some, please let me know! Particularly with the aponogetons which seem to have completely disappeared.

    Have you spoken to Dave at Aquagreen.com.au in the NT? He use to have a lot of plants.

    @bblaw Jeffrey is a good source for some of the mosses I’m after and potentially some of the native plants, however he cant sell the native Aponogetons without a license

    @bblaw its only because Aponogetons are a protected plant in Queensland

    I will keep an eye out for some of these. I think I've since lost my A. lancesmithii and my other native Aponogetons.

    Lance doesn't keep any more as far as I know, but I'm planning to pop in on him again either this year or next year... I will see if he still keeps some in his dams. I'm sure he will like knowing someone else will be keeping them alive in aquaria. I'm also planning to do another NT trip within the next two years - I'll strive to collect some stems and anything else for you then.

    I have some L. chinensis too. I'm a little busy with things in my own life at the moment, but I'll try to get you a cutting at some stage. As far as I can remember mine are doing well.

    Might also have some other NT native stems from my trip last year. I'll a message you after my exams in about three weeks.

    @Rebel I have a post up on the group already. Thanks for the reminder, I need to bump it
    @Cryptocorynus thanks mate. I’d be very keen. Wish I could go on a trip to the NT myself, would be great fun. Good luck with your exams

    We had a real pathetic wet season up here this year so the pickings qould have been real slim. Never seen anything this bad in all my years here. Fingers crossed for next year!

    @Tuna that sucks. I heard about it in relevance to fish, not many juveniles available.
