WTB Red Root Floaters

I'm looking to get some Red Root Floaters (Phyllanthus fluitans). I live in Montgomery (Near Aurora) Does any one know where to buy them, or have any for sale?

I hope you'll find someone here that has them but if not, I have seen these available on AquaBid - 1/2 cup for $12.00 shipping included.

Thanks. If I have to have them delivered I'll probably wait until it's a bit warmer out.

I have some. In fact, I just threw some away today because I have too much. Good to see somebody likes them besides me.

If you ever come to the Chicago Aquatic Plant Society meeting (see us on facebook) I can bring it. Our Feb 20th meeting is in Deerfield, the March meeting is in Bolingbrook which is closer to you.

Awesome, thanks! I requested to join the group on FB. I can't make it to the February meeting, unless it's in the evening, my kids have basketball games. I'll see if I can make the March meeting once the admins approve my join request. Don't throw anymore away, I'll take however much you want to give me.

They just posted that the March meeting. I'm pretty sure I can make it, If you are going then It'll work out. I have lots of Rotala indica, some Ludwigia Repens & Hydrocotyle leucocephala, a piece of Anubias nana and I could part with clippings from either of these 2 that I don't know the name of. Let me know if you want any of them in exchange.

I'm in Montgomery, it's just south of Aurora. I could meet somewhere to get them. Or my parents are in Des Plaines. I might be able to convince my mom to get them from somewhere around there and hang on to them until I see her.

I will be at the March meeting. Whatever you want to do, let me know. I throw RRF away all the time because nobody seems to want them! I think they're just great - under higher light, they turn solid red!

They sound awesome, I can't believe no one wants them. I'm planning on coming to the March meeting, I can wait until then to get them.
