Our Novenber speaker is Chantz Cramer. He’ll talk about The horticulture of aquatic plants & wabi kusa aquascaping

Chantz's Bio:

My name is Chantz Cramer and I am from the Swamps of Loxahatchee Florida where there is a high concentration of aquatic plants found in nature. Everything from the common Ludwigia repens to the allusive and beautiful Rotala ramosior, they all reside here. My hobby within the hobby has been to locate and identify these species.

Aquatic plants are now my life. I recently converted a Gorilla cage into a mist house where I grow over 200 species of aquatic plants. Earlier in the year I told myself I’d enter at least 1 Aquascaping competition this year. I did just that and our team won People’s Choice for 2019 at the AGA/Fluval Large Tank Invitational. I’ve lived on the Horticulture end of the hobby for the past 9 years.

Along with Chantz we will have numerous door prizes including live plants and dry goods.

I will also be selling all Marine BIN items...
