Question Extra plants

What do you all do with your extra plants that you cannot use? I hate the thought of throwing them out. I think my LFS takes them in but not sure.

I think the store here may do something like that.

I was just thinking about this a short while ago. The thought of using them for another tank came to mind. Contagious this hobby is. And multi-tankers like Angel there are bad influences. Word

Tradesies. Craigslist. I just found a new trading buddy on craigslist here, even though he thought he was giving me frogbit but it was duck weed! But he also gave me some stuff that looks like african fern, we'll see if it takes in my tank. Also the guy from my LFS said he'd start trading with me on the side, too. But then I found out he belongs to a big aquatic plant club here so I doubt he will care about anything growing in my newbie tanks!

You got me chuckling again! I am sure I can figure something out. I have to admit that new tanks come to my mind, but then I have to get it off my mind. I can really get into things almost overboard.

What if one dried them and, never mind. I foget children read here too. I'll likely be throwing some away. Otherwise it will be cut, wrap, drive 20 miles, and the lfs is a high priced place. So much so I don't like the ethics of the pricing there.

If you're going to throw them away, what if I pay you for shipping or send you the shipping supplies?
