Default wild plants

Just a thought, has anyone collected plants in their aquarium from the wild, I
was at with my girlfriend collecting water samples at a lake in south ga, when
I noticed a few species of plants I have seen in the stores. Would it be
possible to clean these for home?

Lots of species we use in planted aquaria are easy to collect for those willing to
take the effort.

Bring them home, rinse them off, then put them in a jar or small tank in a window
for a while to see what you found. You'll want to clean them pretty well before
adding them to your tank. The easiest way may just be to let them grow for a
while, and take only clean new growth for your tank.

A gentleman named Tom Barr has been doing a lot collecting lately, and describing
his finds either here or at http://fins.actwin.com/aquatic-plants/, I forget
where. But an archive search for his name will turn up a lot of useful
information.
