Small aquatic plants worth growing for 5 months?
I was planning on setting up a children's wadding pool or small stock tank outside to grow some aquatic plants. I'm doing this for fun and to potentially sell some off at the end of the year. I live in Michigan so I'm guessing I would only have about 5 months of warm weather. So any plants that would be worth propagating for only 5 months? In my tanks I already have water wisteria, dwarf rotala, a species of dwarf sword, java moss, java ferns, and duck weed. If I go with a wadding pool the water will probably only be about 7-8 inches deep. I'm just experimenting, so I'm leaning towards a wadding pool this year and upgrading to something better next year. The current lowest nighttime temps are around the high 40's(9 Celsius). Daytime temps are expected to be anywhere from 66-86(19-30 Celsius) over the next 10 days. It would be next to a garage so would receive shade for part of the day. Anything I can start growing now or do I need to wait for the nighttime temps to go up? Prohibited aquatic plants in Michigan if that helps https://www.michigan.gov/documents/d...s_388943_7.pdf
I have some anacharis but someone I talked to from the DNR seemed to think it was prohibited. I bought it from a local fish shop this year. I think it depends what exact species it is. So I have no plans of propigating that until I'm sure my species is ok. He also recommended against all frogbit even though I pointed out I couldn't find Amazon frogbit(Limnobium laevigatum) on any Michigan lists. Its a shame if it is unwise to have(potential future bans), because I really like Amazon frogbit. Would red root floater(Phyllanthus Fluitans) be likely to be banned in a northern state? Thanks for any replies
