Looking for Floating plants in College station

Anyone have any extra floating plants they would like to sell? I have tried(many times) to have them shipped to me but they always turn yellow and mushy before they arrive and never recover in my tank. So now Im trying to find some locally. I am looking for red root floaters, salvania minima, and amazon frogbit. Please pm me if you have extra of any of these.

I have a little bit of mixed salvania minimum, water lettuce, and frogbit that you can have if you want. I think I have to much surface movement to keep it happy.
Let me know if you are going to be in the area.

yes I live in CS! I bought some moneywort, it wasn't very healthy looking but it recovered in my tank after about 2hrs... They had some water wisteria for sale but it didn't look healthy at all so I didn't get any.... Petco has some nice plants every now and then!

You are welcome. Thanks for the shrimp.

Sorry, there was not any frogbit in there.

Cool, another BCS aquarium junkie! In about a month I am going to have more trimmings than I know what to do with. If you want anything let me know.

You can see what I have planted here.

The previous post is also for anyone in BCS. If I'm going to trim it you can have it. I always appreciate a trade

Now I will stop hijacking doublet's thread.
