    H.A.P Horticulturists Award Program

    I just would like to say I would love to see more people get involved with this program. Its a great way to learn about plants, get un heard of/rare plants from other people in the club, common ones as well, get plants cheaper than pet shops and to add character to your tank/tanks at home, office or your home office lol. I know i recently have started participating in this program and so far it has been fun, for me that is. I have HAPed java moss, christmas moss, subwassertang (rare), windelov, java fern, needle leaf java fern, anubius afzelli, and rotala rotundifolia. Next month I will have anubius coffeefolia (currently main plant is flowering), anubius bartieri (this piece has flowered for me) anubius nana, luwdiga SP "red" (rare) jungle val, italian val, dwarf sag, cryptocoryne moehlmannii, cryptocoryne wenditi "red". I hope more people start participating in this program because I would hate to see it dropped from the club. Have fun everyone!

    Too late, I'm already thinking of how to set up a warm area in garage and put a few emersed setups on my metal storage racks.

    My luck seems to be hit-or-miss with plants. I may start participating if/when I get it figured out.

    I'm actually looking forward to getting a fully-planted tank up and running again. Our aquarium time has fallen on the back burner since we've moved back to Indiana and bought a house. Now that we have relocated, tanks keep finding their way to our garage, lol. Now I just have to get them set up somewhere and growing plants again. Lol.

    I'm thinking of submitting some plants in July, but I have some questions:

    1. Who do I turn the plant(s) in to at the meeting?

    2. I've got a tank about overrun with chain sword, so with runner plants:
    a. How long do they have to be separated from the "parent" plant?
    b. Do they have to be individually separated, or can I cut off a section of the chain (eg. 3 or 4 plants, still connected to each other) and HAP that?

    3. Does class D count if you grow the plant from a dry bulb, or is this a plant that is grown, reproduced, and then grown?

    I think I understand the rules. It seems to be too easy. There will be forms at the meeting I can't print? Thanks

    I'm not sure if Brad brings blank forms with him. I don't recall seeing any.

    Ok thanks I will go print some. The more I look into this though it is not seeming as easy as I thought.

    Is there a limit to how many plants I can hap at 1 time? Or just general auction rules apply? If it is stated I can't find it.

    Yes only floaters need a lil water. And remember, make sure there are the same amount of plants brought to HAP as you would buy in a pet shop.
