Thanks, Choclate. I think I'll try java fern, too.

That pack of 2 bulbs I found at Walmart was on sale for like $4. If it works I might go grab the other two that were there.

You can grow it in substrate as long as the Rhizomes not buried. Lava rock or Driftwood too.

I've never had luck with the bulbs you get in the packages. I bought one from petco that had apongenton, tiger lotus, and water onion in it and none of them sprouted, actually...the water onions both sprouted but then rotted afterwords...worst smell of my life!!
Hopefully you have better luck!!

Java fern is definitely nice! Try to get the biggest ones the store has that way you have baby ferns faster! I think I have only had mine for like 2 months and one of them already has babies all over the leaves.



Sorry its such bad quality lol I didnt realize that it looked so horrible, but gives you an idea

O.o wow I really know less about plants than I thought I did, lol. This sounds like a whole lot of trimming and removing of plants. Also a whole lot of giving friends some live plants for their tanks, lol.

Babies start to grow on Java fern leaves when the leaf starts to die.

That just seems so weird to me, haha!
I guess I still have a bit to learn about plants. I kind of want to make a spreadsheet for all the different kinds I'm looking at to map out whether they are planted/floaters/stems, how/if they can grow and be transferred to different tanks, how you would cut them, etc, etc...

I figured I would need to print it out and hang it by my tanks somewhere so I don't have to come back and look at this thread every time one of them starts agrowin' and I'm not sure how to trim them! haha.

Also I really need to grab a picture of those lights to see if you think they will work.
