NYC aquatic plant club


Hi in the past I wanted to start a New York City Aquatic plant club. Basically I noticed that although there are fish clubs in NYC, they don't really tend to lean towards the plant side of the hobby. So althouogh this club involves fish and other aquatic things, I rather want the spotlight to be on the plants.

I like there to be a trade network here as well. It seems to me that non of the local pet shops take any of the trimmings or shrimps that we have extra for anything besides free. No store credit and most of the time a werid face. Also they like to charge alot like New World.

For the time being, I would like to meet in some nice public places like starbucks. Or whatever u guys may like. Enjoy a cup of coffee over a nice conversation of aquatic culture.

I want it to be a nice place to go learn more about how to grow, where to aquire, or just to meet other people in the area that share the same interest. Or you could come just to show off. Right now I don't care about names but I want to get to the heart of the situation. How much interest is really here?

If you are interested please post here or pm me. If you feel it is a bad idea, then please don't post here and stand in the corner until you can forget that this thread exist.

So then who wants to be part of this new club!

a great place to recruit people in addition to the forums is at the Aquarium club meetings. That's how our local group got started (a handful of plant enthusiasts in the local fish club).

Might be interested.

Depends on where, day and time. Living in SI there isn't a whole lot of options when it comes to public transportation especially in the evenings.

I'm interested. Monthly swap meetings would be nice, it'd also give plants time to grow again for the next swap.

Starbucks? I'm in. Someone bring me a baggie of glosso, and I'll buy you a grande caramel macchiato. Add me to the list, Tran. Btw - did that puffer survive?
