    I went to the local state park today and I happened to collect some local plants. All of them were submersed when I collected them. I have never seen any of these plants before and I'm going to try to grow them submersed and just see what happens. The moss was very interesting. It would cling to rocks right at the water line and grow in and out of the water. Any help on the kind of plants would be excellent. I live in Alabama so I guess these plants are native to this area unless they were invaders. Here's some pics:

    I think the last pic in the first group is rotala rotundiofola.

    Not sure about the rest, need to look at them more.

    Re: # of pics. Site has a limit.

    Go to photobucket.com (or similar), sign up (free), post your pics there, and then just paste the link for each pic in your thread. Everyone can then follow the link.

    Example:

    Image of Laetacara Group - Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

    Then there is no limit :)

    Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket


    Good luck!

    P.S. I want a pic of the salamander you caught!

    Most of them look like emergent plants. They will grow and stay green for awhile till the water recedes etc.

    Careful not take things from the State park, take pictures, not plants.
    A ranger will give you a hefty ticket.

    Seriously? Uh ohhh...How can I get a permit to collect aquatic plants? Can I just find somewhere that isn't a state park :). Does the moss look like it could be grown submersed? Tom do you know any good spots for native aquatic plants in Alabama, or any books that would be good to look through for wild aquatic plants?
