    I have seen two small short foreground plants that I like one is Eriocaulon Moto Grosso the other was stiff but with wavy leaves. The E. Grosso sounds to hard to get, let alone grow. So do you know anything similar? I like the idea of a more rigid looking front plant.

    Most Eriocaulons look similar, try finding the more common Eriocaulon cinereum.

    The stiff wavy leaf one, do you mean Pogostemon helferi "downoi"?

    Charley, aka Lowcoaster occasionally sells them. He does business via email, you can join his distribution list by emailing beadgc@nyc.rr.com.

    Yes that is what it was "Downoi". Eriocaulons look like they would stand out with the stiff fanned pattern. I will Email Charley Thanks

    You can get some of these plants retail at Aqua Forest, cost you a fair amount but they are there.
