Hi all,

I live in Orange County, and I am looking to join a local group where aquatic plants will be auctioned/swapped/donated. I am aware of C.O.A.S.T. yet have not attended a meeting yet, though I do not think too much plant discussion/bartering goes on there.

If you know of any such group, please fill me in. Thanks.

that would be a thought.

I went to one coast meeting (part of it...before I ran out....too much guppy love *L*). The plant auction did have lots of common plants, but nothing I'd call special by any means.

I'd be willing to join...I've some rare plants! Euriocaulon sp. "Tonina", Hydrothrix gardneri, Hygrophila sp. "Pantanal"...but I'm only 15, I don't really have to time to go to an auction at this time. Maybe in the summer?

I nominate Gomer and Raul-7 to be president and vice president of the new club. In return, they will have to give each member 1-5 stems of all their plants (particularly the rare ones). When's the first meeting?

Hi-
I'm in O.C. too (Anaheim). I just attended my first C.O.A.S.T. meeting last month- I really think it's going to be a great resource for knowledge, as well as the auctioning and trading that goes on. And the stuff they auction off usually goes pretty cheaply. They have an auction that lasts about 1 hr. at the end of every meeting. And there are lots of plants (or, at least there were at the meeting I went to). I didn't ask, but I'm sure there are several plant enthusiasts at these meetings. I'm definitely going to the next one (almost always the 1st Sunday of the month). You might check it out.
