Join the San Francisco Bay Area Aquatic Plant Society!


If you are from the Bay area, please come join the SFBAAPS plant club, the oldest local plant club in the nation!

We have plant swaps, and many run off with lots of free plants, or algae eating shrimp, or other goodies for free.

We have ferts in bulk for basically free to cost, name brand traces(TMGm, Flourish etc), KNO3, KH2PO4, K2SO4, CaCl2, etc, we offer CO2 tanks 10-15-20lbs for 50$ filled and a fun group full of friendly folks. 30% discount for the BarrReport year rate.
I also offer open house host a full analysis of their water parameters with a spectrophotometer, highly accurate(NO3 to 0.01ppm!!), roughly 35 parameters are tested, DO meter among other testing goodies.

You will learn how to grow plants very well quickly and make great new plant friends.

Regards,
Tom Barr

I went to my first open house on July 31, and it was a lot of fun. All of the members I met were very friendly, and I had a good time chatting with them. I was impressed by the host's large, healthy Madagascar lace plant. And I walked away with free plants and ferts. Most of the plants are not readily available in lfs. I will definitely be at the next open house.

Nothing, but good things to say about the club. I wasn't sure what to expect, but found a well rounded, diverse group of intelligent and fun people who really enjoy the hobby. And O' yeah, free weeds!!!

Karlton and I are driving to Antioch(Universal Discus) Sunday morning to attend BAD(Bay Area Discus) meeting. Hopefully we can see some really nice discus.

What time is it and are there free Discus(culls)?

I might make it, it's the other side of the delta there.
