WTB:Marselia minuta or other variance...

I am specifically looking for a sizable portion of Marselia minuta or its variance. Trying to carpet my 20g long dirt, low light tank. I will try locally first since the weather is too hot for shipping.

There is a guy on fleabay from Brooklyn who sells marsilea. He sells it as M. minuta - but it is actually M. hirsuta. I got mine from him - and the plants were great quality. I recently had a mini-melt of my carpet (too thick maybe?) - and I have some promised out to others - so I can't spare any right now.

Al has M. minuta IIRC

I have a handful of MM if you are still looking. PM me and il send you some pics. They are grown emersed/floater right now so some nodes have the four-leaf formation.

I would prefer them submerged.

Another plant I am looking for is Blyxa Japonica. Maybe looking for 5 to 10 stems.

Thanks.

Got the Blyxa Japonica. Now, I am still looking for some Marselia minuta. I may have to order them online by Sunday and to have them delivered next week with a cooler weather. Also, has anyone been to Pacific Aquarium lately, I went there last week. Not sure what other carpet plants they have now. I know they have baby tears and some hair grass...
