Jealous! I just paid the Co-Op $4.99 for that plant last week. I did a quick search of that book and saw that it included Arkansas. I might have to look into buying a copy. Are you going to do anything in regards to quarantining or cleaning the plant before introducing it into your tank, or would the occurrence of any hitchhikers be a welcomed part of the historically accurate study?

I meant to come back to this thread earlier.  @Daniel, thank you, I was able to find them growing in the waters behind my sister's place.  I did not harvest anything, as I don't know what the laws are for this in our state.  Plus I kind of don't have a spot for any at the moment.  But you did give me a fun adventure to go on with my niece, so thank you!

I bet there are cool native plants in Indiana waters. I’ll do some research and let you know if I find anything.

I would be excited to hear about any literature you come up with on the subject. I live in southern Indiana by Ohio river.@Wisnasky-tank what part you from?

We must not be far apart I can spit into Ohio from where I’m at Richmond Indiana

I live around Anderson, Indiana. There is a mass of hornwort in the nearby creek every year! Though I have never put it in my own aquariums since I already have a butt-ton that I throw away every few weeks. It sure explodes in growth if you let it
