Under high light it grows creme/orange leaves and blood red veins. Grows as fast as Ludwigia repens and similar shape. The emersed...

    Id This Bicolor Plant

    Hey! I bought some new plants and I don't know what they are. Do you know what this plant is? It's not pothos, of course. Though the leaf colors might make you think it is. I can't find any aquatic nor land plant that looks like this! Can you help me? Thank you!

    Cryptocoryne Id

    Hi, I was sold this crypt as Nurii, though I'm questioning this. It's quite a tall plant with stripe-like patterning. Any help appreciated!

    Rotala Sp. 'cambodia'

    Thought I would upload this here as well. Rotala sp. 'Cambodia' is part of the wallichii like group. The red stem coloration is quite consistent under high light and the leaves seem to be more robust and shorter than the typical R. wallichii. The red is also deeper than Rotala sp. 'Vietnam'...

    Nymphaea Rubra Anyone?

    I ordered this thinking it might be like a Tiger Lotus ( I have one of those..but long story) but I now think its a tropical pond lily ( hardy too) but dwarf enough for a large aquarium with enough light. I potted it for now. Once it gets going I can push fertilizer sticks into the substrate...

Originally it had been in not so bright growers tank and came with greenish leaves mostly. It soon shed those leaves and grew these red tiny leaves..very airy and open...

    Boston Fern Grows Underwater???

    I saw this vid of Steinhart Aquarium..is that the old house plant standby Nephrolepis exaltata?? It's not plastic..I think,or silk. I'm sure in this day and age they don't use any kind of artificial plants. Seems to be making croziers. Amazing if true. At around the 8:05 or so. Freshwater...

    Hygrophila 'chai' The Pink-purple Rarity..who's Grown It?

    I'm guessing Tom Barr himself must have this plant. Its color is unlike any other and reminds of those succulents sold at Home Depot painted in neon paint. Not an easy grow I read and plants of tissue culture size are going for $100. Like that would stop a pro..who MUST HAVE IT!..ha. I know how...

    Any Idea What Crypt This Is?

    I've been growing this crypt ever since it was a tiny rhizome half the size of my pinky nail. Its leaves have always perplexed me as to which variety of cordata it is.
