Here's a 3 gal nano with burnt, then petrified Sequoia rock, with one single species, a dwarf low growing hygro.
This is a very easy plant to grow and tend.

It makes a hedge about 2" tall and can easily be maintained. An 8" tall tank has some issue with trimming and upkeep! So such plants are ideal for tiny tanks.

It's not a picky plant as far as light or dosing etc.
Certainly a winner.

I had good success in abused client tanks, this guy mauled the plants, but namely just from it's size, not due to eating it.

Note, this is a low light tank, no HLD nor collectoritis occuring here, one species.
This way you get to know the plant very well.

I might send some to the UK later and to Tropica so it can be made available to all.

A guy on Ebay sells this. Look up aquatic plants and check out the seller Aquadise.com I have bought quite a few plants from him and all arrive healthy and quickly.

Looks great! Do you know what the complete scientific name could be?

tom got that 2nd clump from me and when i got it overseas the guys who sold it to me called it hygro "porto velho" probably because thats where the plant originally comes from however i doubt that thats its real scientific name just something an aquarists gave it for marketing purposes, this used to be a hard plant to get but surprisingly enough its coming more common these days
