There is serious interest in those floaters and left overs....
Heck, you could even make some money off of them!

What a waste to throw them out, in my opinion.

Raok the plants for people. You will help out the community..

you know, I know how the op feels. sometimes raok are more of a random pita.

and then there is the plant themselves, if I ship in this weather the person would probably get soup...

and if I send some of my Cabomba caroliniana it is a bit leggy and narrow, sure I could send 7-10 stems for the 6.00 for shipping, but I see 5 great bushy stems at the lfs for 5.00 or less all the time, why send someone leftovers?

In my case I found someone on this site that takes all my plants every month or so and gives me guppies in exchange. Just this sat he dropped of 20 asst size guppies and I gave him a grocery bag full of crypts, stems, and floaters.
--he probably got 60.00+ of plants and I prob got 60.00+ of fish

-But if it wasn't for him I would pitch a lot of plants trimmings

20L My Other Tank: OEBT Shrimp
40B Inlaws Tank: 2 goldfish
75 Main Tank w/ sump: 5 Glossolepis pseudoincisus, 5 Melanotaenia boesemani, 10 Melanotaenia praecox, 5 Melanotaenia lacustris, some cories, a bn pleco and rainbow fish fry

also check out Facebook. a group of us started a local planted tank page to help with questions and we can sell or give out our clippings and fish/shrimp. I usually have them meet me a work if
anyone wants them. that way im not out anything.

It's kinda hard when u need the space these plants take so I really have no time for a ROAK. All my other plants will die then I gotta start all over, I did put them up for sale for cheap but no one wated them plus u gotta wait so long between sales posts if u don't support this site. Well I guess this is why no one wants to put pics or stories up on this post. You become the bad guy but to me it's all good!

No time for a RAOK but enough time for a sale.
It's give and take, that's what makes this world go round.
