Anyone know a good place to buy seeds for an emerged setup?

I've looked on eBay, and amazon and can only find assortments without them even specifying what kind of plants they are.

Hi dulcisveteranus,

Welcome to TPT!

Why buy seeds when you can purchase emersed stems, plants, or cuttings of known species? Just start a thread in the Want to Buy / Random Act of Kindness (WTB)/Road) sub-forum with the requesting plants on your shopping list and see what kind of response you get.

@Seattle_Aquarist


The bottles are a great idea.

Are they 2L plastic pop or soda for you Americans bottles cut in half? If possible can you post a closeup pic of one of the bottles..

I'm interested in starting a emersed planted set-up. Do you have a post someone explaining this setup, lighting, soil type, fert routine etc etc.

Sorry for the highjack.
