Where can I get some decent plants? (in the Cape Town area)
Welcome back. Are you starting up a tank again? I still have some of your plecos if you want them back
You cant sorry :-\ just kidding, you should be able to get some interesting plants at panorama otherwise most pet shops just stock the same old stuff...
Panaroma seldomly has good plants. If they do, its gone within 1 day.
Ecopets & Aquariums in Parklands normally has good plants.
Alternatively, everyone on this forum are forever sharing plants (that's why I have so many diffrent plants), so I suggest you ask around. I have some Hygrophilia Difformis, Ludgwia Repens & Limnophilia Sessiliflora shoots I can part with. You will have to come them up though. PM me if you're interested
Nope, not starting a new tank yet... Enjoying married life for now, but I'm itching to start something again.
I'm looking for plants for my sisters tank. We can't find anything decent in the Northern Subs, I think a trip to Nick @ Hartlands will be our only choice...
Thanks for the offer Dale, but my sisters set-up is very basic, Don't want to kill off those nice plants.
I don't mind as these plants are fast & easy growers. If you change your mind, PM me....will save you a trip to Nic
Melissa, me and Dale pass plants among us. If Brackenfell is closer, you may also pick some up from me.

Hi Gert. I would like to come and see your tanks sometime . Dale raves about your set up.
Maybe this coming Saturday afternoon might be on...will let you know if its confirmed.
Well Phil is going to hartlands on saturday so if you want to go throuhg I suggest you guys pool.
Im changing that to Thursday, Nik is getting some awesome fish in...
Pls ask him if my Bleeding Hart Tetras arrived yet
And plants? Will he be getting plants in aswell?
Dale panorama has bleeding hearts, oh and i cant belive i was too exited about getting my L177 (gold nugget pleco) and marble hatchets to ask about plants
huh? Panorama has them? Ok, will make a turn there on Saturday morning as I have to go pick my sister up in the area. But if you get to Nic and he has them, rather get them from him for me...he said he was going to arrange for me and I don't like ditching people. Besides, with him, I know my fish will survive
Hi Gert. RowlND AND i WOULD LIKE TO POP IN AND SEE YOU THIS SATURDAY. wHAT ARE THE CHANCES. ANYTIME AFTER 10 AM IS GOOD.
Risen, Fine with me... let's get together! And share plants & ideas!
Seeing that this is a topic about plants in Cape Town...
Plants in Cape Town to buy
Hi. Does anyone has plants to sell (or sponsor) in the Kraaifontein, Brackenfell, Durbanville, Kuilsriver or Blackheath area? Most Petshops has a serious shortage of decent plants available. Busy setting up an old 1.2 tank to grow plants for my 2.4 tank. Have some leaf stems that I am trying to grow, so wish me luck. Thanks
Not many pet shops in those areas worth mentioning, but you could try Aquaterra, they occasionally have something interesting.
Tel: 021 9034217
Otherwise, try these guys.
I am willing to share some plants. pm me and we can arrange something.
