FS: Phyllanthus fluitans AKA Red Root Floater

I have some ready to ship 8/25. $7 shipped USPS to continental USA. Non CC Paypal please.

It is easier to keep in check and not as invasive as duckweed but it is a fast grower. I haven't gotten any flowers yet and my roots are pink but not red. That is probably just my tank setup.

See plant info here:

PS - I have some of those little ramshorn type snails in this tank. You "could" get eggs if that concerns you. I will try to pick them off if I see them.

I usually have some of this every 2-3 weeks. I am "Selling" it for $7 shipped. I can usually spare a pretty good portion about enough to cover a 6 inch by 6 inch area or more depending how many people are interested at the time. I am not looking to make money on this. Postage is about $5. The extra $2 is for time and materials and I am sure it isn't covered unless I am making 50 cents an hour

Edit: As of 9/8 I am not ready to ship. Maybe 9/22 or sooner depending on how much it grows. I just gave a bunch to a local guy last week so I am a bit low.

Greenfish - When you have more of this let me know and I will want some! How quickly does it spread? I have it in mind for something, but I don't want it to "choke out" the light on my bottom plants.

Sorry for the slow response. I hadn't checked this post. I have some now. It grows pretty fast but it is manageable. I have to pull a bunch out once a month. Light does get through it but is is shaded. I have mine in a 25 gallon high tank with 65 watts of light and Co2. I have crypts, java fern (narrow leaf and regular), flame moss, and a taiwan banana plant in there. They all grow fine. Since it is a high tank I did not want to use HC or some other high light ground cover. If you culled the plant more frequently than I do and had higher light you would probably be ok anyway. Unlike duckweed you can actually eliminate this plant fairly easily if it doesn't work out.

Bump on this thread. I have probably 3 portions. I have one potentially sold already so I at least have 2.
