Noahma That would be pretty cool. I dont have near as many plants as i used to, but could bring one or two stems for someone. I am doing a massive trim and replant tomorrow, but I am sure no one wants the trimmed parts lol, they are the lower parts of the stems that are starting to get ratty. but after it gets going again, I usually trim the top and allow the side shoots to grow. I do the trims like that for a month or two, then do the total replant of the upper portions. (usually when the stems new growth slows, and I get some stem melt at the bottom.

rballi i would be down for a plant swap!

Alplily Wonder if we could all do a casual plant swap meet somewhere central to all? I don't have much to offer just yet, but should within a couple of months, including a lovely red stem (ludwigia or rotala... escapes me at the moment). I'd sure love a start of your Pogo sometime, Noahma.

ehh, I was using my phone app that hides sigs lol.

If you are looking for some red plants, I can always spare a stem or two of Pogostemon stellatus 'Broad Leaf' (sends out side shoots like crazy when trimmed)

Depending on the above answers, I can get you a trimming of several types of plants. most require higher light, co2 injection, and a good fertilizer regimen.

In the next week or two, I can provide you with a few trimmings of Ludwigia inclinata 'cuba', pogostemon stelattus 'broad leaf', these are my higher light plants. mid and lower I have hygrophilia corymbosa 'angustifolia' which is a nice wide stem plant (6-10" wide!) Rotala Rotundifolia 'green', some bacopa of some sort, Lindernia sp. 'India'

lol I have a ton of plants, some I only have a very short quantity of some of the stems.

please excuse the spelling of the species, I did not want to spend the time looking up the correct spellings lol
