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!
