I have a water-bog plant that grows on my property that has a leaf like an arrowhead. Don't really know the name of it. I would like to offer it on the plant trade forum, but since it's from a wild area do you think that it would possibly carry disease or pests to pond or bog enthusiasts?
Is it a very common plant? Would appreciate any advice, thanks.

We call Saggitaria species Arrowhead.

In therory, yes, it could pass on pests, disease and possibly other plants, but then any plant traded from one garden to another could well do the same. I reckon as long as the traders are aware it could be a possibility it shouldn't be a huge problem.

Post #311748 are right and when you receive water plants you should isolate them and treat them for bacteria and parasites!
