NANFA-- Florida plants

Bob Bock's "phone message" post and Ty's query about hard water plants got
me thinking (!) about plants in Florida.. (Also, the reason no one else
answered Ty's question is probably because so many people were out
collecting or following up on "honey-dos" - Duh!)

With a range of waters probably often tending towards the alkaline side
(considering the state's limestone underpinning) and the proliferation of
everything else exotic, are plants we think of as aquarium plants to be
commonly found while sampling?

More importantly, what are the state regulations on taking such plants -
either native or exotic - and carrying them across the state and across
state lines?

Too busy with work at the moment to do too many things aquatic, this is,
sadly, purely informational purposes. ;)

Thanks in advance and all the best!
