I have some of this in my tank as well. It is just now starting to grow it's submersed leaves. I did have a question though,how do you get this stuff to spread?Do you just take cuttings off and plant them?
How deep do these root? I ask because I am still thinking of trying a groundcovering plant with my clown loaches, and I figure its best to get a stong deep rooted ground convering plant, to make it less likely the clowns will stir them up.
I have only had mine a short time.I bought it from the lfs and it had been grown emersed. It was in a 2 in pot that they use. Anyway I took it out of the pot and the main root was about 3 in long twisted around the inside of the pot. A little root bound I guess The roots will go very deep and get very big given time.
I kept 2 different BN with this species and had no problem, also a ton of other barbs, tetras, killis, cichlids(discus, angel, rams)... never had a problem till I put some redline torpedo barbs, forget the latin p.. denisoni or something like that.. they ate them to the point where I had to move all of them out of the tank.., sad they are a nice little plant and at the time of of my favs..
What kind of water parameters does this plant do well in? As I had a nice stand of it growing in one of my tanks. Then I added co2 and changed nothing else and it quickly withered away. Up until then I had never found a plant that didn't like co2. I find it hard to believe it was the co2 that caused it but I just don't know what else it could have been.
