Default Brazilian Pennywort

I have Brazilian pennywort. I bring some to my lfs(The Ark) about once a week, he sells it like hotcakes. I'f you'd like I'll save some for you. I live just across the border in Indiana. By the way it's also snail free!

I just happen to ask about pennywort and moneywort at Petland in Bolingbrook today and was told they never stock them there. I have seen it at Petsmart in Downers Grove recently, though.

None at the downers grove petsmart. Just hornwort and moneywort. I thought this was supposed to be a pretty common plant...

I have pennywort, I bough it from the Petland in Bolingbrook in Sept-Nov. Strangely it's a slow grower in my tank.

Don't know if you're still looking, but I was at the Bolingbrook PetLand yesterday and they had Brazilian Pennywort in stock. Also had Florida Sunset Crypts for anyone interested.

If you are going to the Swap meet in April, that's there I was able to pick up some Dwarf Pennywort. Grown emersed, but will convert over time
