    This week's plant highlight is

    Styracosaurus_dinosaur.png

    Nah just kidding. Nevertheless, a plant which has a name more suitable for a dinosaur

    Ceratopteris cornuta

    On the other hand, I unearthed some digital-fossils from 12 years ago of a Ceratopteris sp. plant. Maybe you can help me identify it.

    How can you tell the species apart ?
    How do you use it in your aquariums?
    Does it even have a place in modern aquascaping ?

    More recent pictures always help :)

    Cheers

    Another week, another business trip. After 2 days of driving, finally a place with good stable wi-fi, checking the barrreport and missing a relaxing view of your home aquarium. These are realities of our modern life, just like The Plant of the Week .

    This week, we have a popular plant used by many in their aquascapes:

    Pogostemon helferi

    Looking forward to see your experience with this plant.
