    Any cutting. Doesn't matter how it looks. Please just dump it into a bag with water and
    I will make a plan to come and pickup.

    Just filled the tank so first going to try and just multiply some plants, so any cuttings
    welcome. Even if it just a small pieces. Everything is going into the tank just to see
    if I can grow some for when the real planting start in 2 months.

    All is welcome.

    Water busy clearing. Like normal I didn't rinse the fluorite sand good enough, but it's fine just to get plants going from when I am doing the rescape.

    Also waiting for the driftwood to stop drifting.

    Oops. Didn't rinse the fluorite enough or didn't take my time filling.

    Some of my offcuts already floating in the tank.

    Thanks but please guys don't destroy your scapes. I am looking for offcuts when you trim. I will make it grow.

    But I will def take all that you can provide. Just don't know how I am going to get to all of you.

    Very nice Pierre

    Ja. Think I will def come by to pick your brain on your setup. My plan is to grow my own plants instead of going to shops.

    Just way more fun doing it yourself.

    OH dear - I did a major cut back last week and chucked it out. I hardly ever log onto APSA so I didnt see the request. I'll post the cuttings on here next time.
