    Hi

    Just a quick question, what would people recommend donating to UKAPS if I give plants away to other members. I personally do not want any money for them so I think a donation to UKAPS would be good.

    Thanks
    Dave

    If I am getting a single portion/bunch/specimen of something I usually give £2.50. More if it is a rare speciment plant etc.

    I think being a donation there shouldn't really be a fixed amount, otherwise it is paying under a different name.

    Having said that I think the donation should reflect the value of the plant to some extent.

    Hope that helps.

    Ok, thanks, yes it helps, was just asked the question how much to donate. Couple of quid sounds reasonable for any of the plants I would have enough of to give away.

    Cheers

    Hiya Dave, our main source of income is donations through plant sales. It's great that people are prepared to take the time to send out plants and let UKaps take the donations, we appreciate it a lot and it allows us to keep promoting the hobby in as many avenues as possible.

    Cheers, Dan

    I pulled 50 dwarf sag out of my tank this week! That stuff is a phosphate monster, once you add enough it grows at a crazy rate! Some of it sold (to cover my postage costs) and some of it donated ;)

    Only 30 plants left this week! ....
