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
