I went to my LFS today with 2- gallon size freezer bags half full of plant clippings that I was gonna throw away. One had Hornwort and the other had Foxtail. He gave me $10 cash for both bags. I was so excited because I was just gonna throw it away. I should have brought him some wisteria also since I prune back that stuff almost weekly. At this rate I'll be able to pay for my pressurised CO2 setup in about a year. Cool huh!
I set-up the CO2 because I wanted a tank like the ones I saw online with no intent of selling plants. Nice bonus.

Congrats dude. I don't think that my LFS would ever do that. I really don't have very good pet stores around me. There is one good one about 45 minutes away but they don't have a very big plant section.

Let's just hope he keeps buying them from you!

My LFS would probably look at my lush Rotala Indica clippings and say "I'll give you $0.25 for that Anachris - it looks a bit sparse and thin." They are complete numnutzes.
