It -was- doing very well before the move.. It's gotten a bit leggy and thin now, and quite a bit got uprooted when the tank was moved. I am thinking of buying a bunch more and trying again, now that I'm more familiar with it.

Oh - and I forgot to add 'blyxa' to my list. Great plant!

XD Got some of that during an RAOK in the local area and gave it away. Kind of do want to try it out some day.
if you have a HOB you can try sticking the HC in the canister on the foam pads. that's where i keep mine :D

I also began an emmersed set up lately in my old Jar which I cleaned out :D

Can some one send me moss? I will pay or trade. I have
-amazon sword plant
-javafern
-dwarf hairgrass
-moneywort
-Three more unidentified plants lol
I plan on adding wisteria and hornwort too but am not sure how. All my plants are in an npt and are doing great. The one I thought was going to die does not plan on dieing and is lookinng wonderful. dwarf hairgrass is in the middle alot of it is yellow and dead but there are new shoots growing all around it. One of my plants is giving off new shoots all over it is doing great! Half the plants I got came in plastic cups my cat managed to yank one out of the tank and tore it apart :( I putt it back in the cup and left it. When I set up my npt I pulled it out of the cup and began peeling the sponge stuff away from the roots it started reaking it smelled so bad! I found out the roots and parts of the stem had rotted! I managed to save one shoot that had fallen out of the pot and had been floating in the tank for the last couple days. I planted it expecting it to die. Today I have on shoot that it thriving and has grown taller the new growth is bright green! So that is my npt once again does anyone have some moss I could trade or buy? Thanks

Wow you all have a very impressive list of plants! Woo-Hoo! I love the plant love. :D I too would spend a lot of money on my plants. A planted tank just makes me so happy. :)

Here is my list:
Amazon Swords
Anubias
Anacharis
Moneywort
Mondo Grass
Corkscrew Vallisneria
Aponogeton Crispus
Hornwort
I have another plant I can't quite remember what it is. :/

I need to get:
java moss
christmas moss
duckweed
water wisteria

As for non aquatic plants/herbs:
Aloe
Sweet basil (it looks like a tree, lol)
Lavender
Spinach
baby carrots

If I have more space I would grow more, lol! I need a big house with a green house and a koi pond. :D Some day *sigh* ;)
