Rare Plants in Canada - downoi, Monte Carlo, hydrocotyles, Anubias, and more!


So I decided to upgrade my plant list in a new thread, this will be updated whenever possible with more plants, descriptions, and photos. I will also include a short description of the plants!
Some of the plants are grown both submerged and in high humidity emersed setups, which offer hardy algae/pest free plants with minimal transition issues. These are regularly sold/ship and have had great success.

I usually have other plants I don't list for sale, so if you're looking for anything odd, feel free to pm with any questions!

I've also shipped a fair amount all across Canada, so shipping is definitely fine by me.

To the plants! All quantities are minimums, I always give lots more!

Foregrounds:

Utricularia graminifolia - 1.5x1.5" for $10 Sold Out! - a very compact carpet that grows a light green colour. Fairly quick growth once adapted, best in med-high lighting.
Micranthemum Umbrosum 'Monte Carlo' - 2"x2" for $10 - a very short carpet plant, similar to HC Cuba, but with larger round leaves. Grows in low-high lighting.
Hydrocotyle verticillata - 15 nodes for $5 - looks like green mushrooms! Grows in many different conditions with slower growth.
Hydrocotyle sp. Japan - 20 nodes for $5 - fast growing carpet, good in almost any lighting.
Anubias Nana - $1 a leaf (from 5 leaf rhizomes up to 35+) - small-leafed Anubias, great low demanding plant.
Bolbitis Cuspidata - small rhizome (~5-7 leaves) for $5 - low demanding, slow growing fern, very compact as leaves only grow around 1-2" tall.
Staurogynes repen - 5 stems for $5 - compact stems with vibrant green leaves, best in med-high lighting, just slower growing in low lights.
Marsilea crenata - 10+ nodes for $5 Temp. Sold Out! - low demanding carpeting fern, looks like single leafed glossostigmas, with slower grow.

Midground:

Rotala mini butterfly - 5+ stems for $5 - great mid-background plant, very dark reds with wavy leaves in high lighting, fast grower as well.
Staurogyne sp. purple - 2 stems for $5 - grows mostly green leaves, but turns darker and becomes purple in higher lighting. Medium growth rate.
Bacopa sp. japan - 8 stems for $5 - fast growing green Midground, very attractive in groups and bushes out very well. Good in many lighting conditions.
Lindernia sp. India - 2-3 stems for $5 - slow growing Midground that has green leaves with purple highlights, best in med-high lighting.

Background:

Tonina fluviatilis - 5 stems for $5 - light green, dense, and fast growing. Requires soft water with med/high lights for best results.
Rotala macranda - 5 stems for $5 - fast growing, large leafed stem plant, grows a bright fluorescent red in high lights, but grows in all lighting conditions.
Bacopa colorata - 4 stems for $5 - large leafed bacopa, picks up pink highlights in higher lighting. Has a very fresh/lemongrass smell as well
Bacopa caroliniana - 6 stems for $5 - light green, compact plant, turns yellowish in higher lighting. Smells good as well when trimming.
Bolbitis heudelotii - 4-5 leaved rhizome for $5 - low demanding fern, great in tanks with high currents.
Sphaerocaryum Malaccense - 5 stems for $5 - very unique stem plant, looks like a cross between regular grass and bamboo. Moderate growth rate and good in many lighting conditions.
Ludwigia brevipes - 5 stems for $5 - dense growing stem plant that grows horizontally as well, grows red in higher lighting.
Hygrophila pinnatifida - 3 plantlets/stems for $5 - very unique looking/acting stem plant, can be grown on rocks, woods, and other surfaces! Fast growing and spreads through runners too.


Moss:

Mini pellia - $8/golfball - very dense growing plant, it attaches very well and holds on well even when thick. Good in all lighting conditions and low demanding. Slower growing so it won't take over your tank.

Floaters:

Salvinia minima - dozen+ for $5 - great looking floater with short roots so less mess! Good in all conditions.
Red Root Floaters - dozen+ for $5 - nice compact floater with short red roots.
