    Hello! I'm hoping to create an aquarium using only native aquatic plants. Is there a list of these plants and perhaps where to find them? I know there are a lot of marsh plants, but I'm looking for fully aquatic. Thanks!

    Keep in mind that the native species will all be adapted to outdoor conditions

    Have you had much success in finding information about native plants in aquaria?

    Hey, I’ve been exploring this idea as well. Best I’ve found were those two resources in the 2nd post. Otherwise, looking up “native aquascapes” “North America native aquascape” etc. on Youtube can provide a bit of info.

    Here are some other resources. Different watershed for the Alberta one but I’m sure there are similar plants and it notes whether they are invasive or not.
