I have a surplus of C. affinis if you want some. It's the same strain that Chad has. It shows a lot of variation, even though they're all descended from the same plant.

I am pretty sure this is the one you are hunting. Giving it the optimal conditions is a whole other game Let me see if I can hunt up the pics of it that I have somewhere...

I just got a "metallic red" affinis from Xue it is amazing, he's also sending me a "green" one he has. The "metallic red" has already thrown 3 new leaves in the 2 weeks I've had it so I've got hope that it's a fast grower.

Now everytime I look at the tank it seems like a fail I have also never seen that form of P palustris. If you have any extras id love to do another trade sometime. As far as the L. repens X arcuata, im not 100% convinced thats what it is either. You can sort of tell by the pic that this thing gets really big. Like L. 'Cuba' big. At this point I only keep the one mother stem becuase it throws so many side shoots.
Yes, I think you did send me the green affinis! It's either a crypt I have hidden under some pygmaea or I sent it to Sara lol.

I have a couple extras of the feathery P. palustris if you'd like some next week. They're healthy but not colorful because they got shaded by faster growing stems. I can probably spare 5-6 Cuphea anagalloidea if you're still looking for those too.

PM coming Bsmith!

Are those all trimmings? That's one heck of a hack job! Any tank pics of the pre cut/post cut??

I'm so jealous of your crypts and mosses lol.

No, those are just the stems laying down during a 50% waterchange. I thought the colors were cool so I snapped a few pics.

Ahhh my bad, The colors do look cool! Seems like everything is filling in nicely for you. I love the moss crawling on the glass.

Thanks. I like that moss too. IDK why it did that but it works for me. I never trained it or tied it, it just grew from the wood to the back so I let it
