Looking to purchase or trade for Eleocharis dulcis, Chinese Water Chestnut.

Also, Lotus, either Sacred Lotus Nelumbo nucifera or American Lotus Nelumbo lutea

Sacred Locus is available @ JL Hudsons.

Yes, thank you. I'm wondering if there are any permies who would like to sell, trade, share, etc.

I ended up getting 4 rather expensive Chinese Water Chestnut plants from William Tricker. If these grow as fast as claimed, in six months or so I hope to have many to share.
