Phyllanthus Fluitans/Red Root Floaters

I'm really not sure what the demand for these are, but I'll have red root floaters available very soon as they've continued to grow atop my 20G long at a rapid pace.

I should have enough to send a good amount to 2-4 takers in a small USPS Priority flat rate box. I'm thinking at minimum 15-20 plants each?



I only ask for you to:
- cover actual shipping costs (shipping from area code 39705)
- be patient with delivery/processing times; it's difficult for me to get to the post office during the week due to job requirements and distance to my nearest post office
- pay it forward, i.e. don't try to profit off the floaters you grow and want to get rid of yourself. I can't hold you to this of course, but let's agree to help our community of aquarists!

I've felt really bad throwing out dozens of these perfectly healthy plants, and just want to share them with anyone who could use them. They may come with algae and/or pest snails. No clue what type(s).

Local pick up is also an option if you are in the Columbus, MS area.

Message me if you are interested!

I vouch for stooker. Great guy and the floaters he sent me arrived in great shape. No snails or algae were found on them.

Thanks goatnad! Glad you are enjoying the plants. I def have some algae in my tank but maybe not on the floaters themselves, and have found the random young pest snail here and there, so just wanted to be honest. Cheers and take care!

Hi! I should have more in a few weeks. They're thinned out for now, and I'm travelling all next week. When I get back I should have enough grown back to send some out.

Glad they got there ok. I'm always nervous about the packing, but I'm three for three, so I guess I'm doing it right. Enjoy the plants!

I would love a few red roots to try out when you get enough to send out!
