Narrow Leaf Anacharis

Just wanted to let you know Narrow Leaf Anacharis doesn't do the shedding regular Anacharis does. I much prefer it and find it an easier keeper.

A reminder: Even Seachem's web site warns Anacharis does not do well and will melt with Excel if dosed more than every two days. I found this to be true but dosing half every day seems to work as well.

Wish I had known about this prior to ordering my plants for my next tank. Not sure if I can squeeze any of this in with the scheme.

A further question about this plant. A friend told me that if Anacharis reaches the surface, it will flower followed by dropping all of its leaves at once. Any truth to that?

I don't know as mine has reached the surface but not flowered. One of my favorite plants. Bama Plants is where I get mine. He may list NLA Saturday night on AquaBid. They have a Saturday Night Event this Saturday; one-hour auctions with lots of lower-priced goodies.

Just found out from Ken of Bama Plants: Narrow Leaf Anacharis does not flower and lose its leaves.

Thanks RS for tracking that down. Going to see how the planned setup turns out. If there any blank areas, I'll add this to the tank.

I like the Kelp like plant look of it.
