Well, I started out with 3 amazon swords, 2 of these stem plants labeled as "Water Primrose" at the petco about an hour away, one java fern, and one plant that I have no idea what it is. It came out of the tubed plants from petco.
Anyway, the stem plants SHOT UP in about a week and have not stopped so I experimented with cutting and replanting the stems. I noticed roots coming out of some of the root segments so I would just cut right below those. It has worked very nicely, though the original plants become very "stemmy" because the leaves start to die on the lower portion of the plant if I don't cut them fast enough. I removed one from the tank because of this. But now I have around 10 more stems than I started with around the tank.
One of my swords had skinny stems with "baby swords" growing off it so I let them grow awhile and then picked them off and replanted those. So, now I have 7 swords total.
My Java fern is not doing very well but i'm being patient.
Oh and I have a random onion thing :D
Sorry for the horrible use of plant language... I just started this hobby lol
