updated 2/27: Live plants, driftwood, mts

Shipping is $8 for priority mail. (USPS recently raised prices sorry) If you have any questions feel free to ask. Can combine orders to save on shipping. Sorry no pick up.
I use root tabs in the tanks these plants are from, I can include some roots tabs with other for a little extra just ask when ordering!

Plants
*NEW*
Dwarf lily plant
SOLD
This is a large bulb and has given me a ton of beautiful leaves in my tank but I don't have the room on the substrate for the bulb now. Gets lovely bronze/orange/red hued leaves. Great for smaller tanks as it has small leaves in comparison to most other aquatic lily/lotus. Can live in low to medium light. Leaves will grow to the surface making a great place for shade for your Betta (and bubble nest building area). N. Tawian can be 'trained' to stay more compact and not put leaves to the surface by aggressively trimming the stem when it gets taller than you want. After a few weeks/month+ of this it should stay compact around the height you want. I trained mine to stay just a few inches below the surface. If you want to achieve a red hue in the leaves dose iron (first photo below is closet to color accurate but it's more vibrant than the camera captured). Does better with ferts, does not need co2.

Dwarf hair grass
SOLD
Very short dhg staying at about 2-3" for me right now with low light. Easy low light/tech carpeting plant if you are patient it will fill into a nice carpet with time. Will grow faster with CO2 and ferts but does not need them.


Dwarf baby tears
2"x4" loose portion $3, 1 portion available.
Aka HC (Hemianthus callitrichoides), beautiful tiny carpeting plant for medium to high light tanks, fast grower. Please note this is loose hc, its not tied down to mats currently BUT if you want I can include coco fiber, fishing line, and true stainless steel mesh (shrimp safe, unlike the green coated metal mesh used in "__ mat" for the aquarium) to tie the hc to (this will cost extra, pm me for price).


Non aquatic plant
Wandering Jew aka Tradescantia zebrine
SOLD
Works great with vine base/roots in water and leaves above water. Stick in HOB or hang over the side of the tank, or place in a shower caddie/planter basket to keep leaves raised and dry. This is a vine plant but its vine is not as firm as pothos so I does sag with time, simply trim it when it gets too long and replant cuttings. Has shiny green leaves with purple banding and purple underside of leaf, stronger lighting gives more purple hue to leaves. Low light, easy demanding plant great start for riparium plant.


*original post (updated)*
Nymphoides sp Taiwan
TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK, CHECK BACK IN 2 WEEKS (3/11)
Beautiful light green lily plant great for smaller tanks as it has small leaves in comparison to most other aquatic lily/lotus. Can live in low to medium light. N. Tawian can be 'trained' to stay more compact and not put leaves to the surface by aggressively trimming the stem when it gets taller than you want. After a few weeks/month+ of this it should stay compact around the height you want. Bonus: don't throw out trimmed leaves! Float them on the surface and they will either grow roots at the bottom of the stem or sprout a new plant at a 'joint' just a little below the leaf within 1-2 weeks! Not demanding with ferts, does not need CO2.


Echinodorus angustifolia 'Vesuvius'
2 plants for $1, 3+ portions avaiable
A unique member of the sword plant family, its elves stay extremely narrow and have a beautiful spiral/twist to them. Great for a 10g or larger tank (in shorter tanks tops of leaves will trail on surface so can be put in 5g). It makes new plants via runners and wills tart spitting these out within weeks of settling into a new tank. Medium light, does not need co2 but appreciates some ferts.


Hydro sp. japan
SOLD
Beautiful clove shaped leaf plant, great for any size tank, a wonderful option for the foreground (just push down new growth into substrate for first few weeks and it should stay low after that), or allowed to grow as a more vertical stem in the mid ground. Medium light, undemanding does not need co2, does not need ferts but appreciates them


Water Sprite
SOLD
Have a very large plant to either cut up or sell whole. Please note: if you want the whole plant uncut I have to ship medium priority which costs more. Its big enough to be a background plant in a 20g high if kept whole. Trimmed it can be kept in smaller tanks with just periodic cutting. Low to medium light plant, can be planted in substrate or floated to give shade/cover by the surface. Very undemanding easy plant-does not need co2 or ferts. Also works well emersed (above water) even in lower humidity.


Bacopa Caroliniana
6 stems for $1, 1-2 portions available
Please note: these are stems with roots not leaves. Plant in substrate or float them for a week and new leaves will grow. A medium light stem with interesting firmer leaf and stem structure, it grew very well in my tank. In stronger lighting /closer to surface its leaves can get a more bronze hue. Does not need co2, appreciates ferts.
