About CAPS

The Chicago Aquatic Plant Society is a newly formed organization that emphasizes educating hobbyists about starting, keeping, and maintaining aquatic plants in the aquarium.

This site, and also our Facebook Community, serve as a platform where hobbyists can ask questions, exchange ideas, learn about aquascaping principles, and gain other information relevant to keeping planted tanks. If you are in Chicago or the surrounding area, come join us.

October GCCA Swap Meet

Date: October 1, 2017

Time: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Location: Marriott Hoffman Estates

The Chicago Aquatic Plant Society will have a table at the upcoming Greater Chicago Cichlid Association Swap on Sunday Oct 1st to raise funds for the organization. We will be selling hobbyist-grown plants from easy-to- grow to specialty aquatic plants for aquascaping. We will also have some mopani and manzanita wood for sale. The swap is at the Marriott Hoffman Estates, 4800 Hoffman Boulevard Hoffman Estates, IL. 60192. It is Sunday Oct 1st starting at 10:00 am. More info about the swap can be found at http://www.gcca.net/ The swap meets have been our primary fundraising activity, but we need our members help by DONATING PLANTS and coming out to support CAPS. So if you are interested in donating hold off on trimming your plants, we will be collecting them starting the week of Sept 25th.
