Thanks to the wonderful people who have RAOK'd

Due to a helpful suggestion from a member who RAOK'd me some clippings, I have found my favorite plant (for now). I'm a plant newb so I haven't had much exposure to many plants, but this is beautiful and a strong grower which is good since I'm a newb and have a super low tech tank.

Thanks to everybody who RAOK's and I will be "paying it forward" when I get more growth.

ROAK: Random Act Of Kindness
usually means the ROAKer is giving out things for free. you will likely need to pay for shipping. Some really awesome people here on this forum do wonderful ROAKs and pay for shipping out of their own pocket

ROAKs can be found in the RAOK/WTB section, or in the local forums when people only want to deal locally.

This post amuses me. Not in a laughing at you kind of way but just thought you should know that Hygro sp. Sunset is labeled as an invasive plant and is illegal to trade/sell/RAOK or any exchange between parties.

RAOK's are Random Acts of Kindness in which people generally offer free stuff that they don't need (or just for the heck of it) such plant trimmings, extra shrimp, equipment etc.

I am embarrassed that I did not notice that rule before now.
