I've never planted bulbs, i'm too impatient and probably couldn't wait for them to grow.

I only have anacharis & a moss ball right now but I LOVE val plants! I might make it to the not-so-local fish store on Friday to get at their new shipment. The worker said they had some val about 4 inches tall for $1.99 and will be getting a bunch of new plants Friday... I might splurge for about 3 of those and some others... We'll see! ;)
I love watching my anacharis shoot, it's so adorable! C:
I have 3 nano marimo, i had 5 but gave 1 to a friend and put 1 in my snail tank so i don't count it. i tried to get some val online but the place i ordered from was out, i still might try again because i do like the look of it.
Anacharis is the plant i intended to get when i got my banana plant.

I really like one of my java ferns. I attached it to some driftwood & it's grown very well in a short amount of time. It's roots are a bit tangled and sort of go every-which-way... I love the natural, messy look of it!
I also recently put in some stems of (?) water sprite. They were very boring looking, but the new growth of the bottom leaves are incredibly large and healthy looking & a lovely colour compared to the original growth.
I like all my plants.... I also have "normal" val, corkscrew val, hairgrass, mayaca, milfoil, anubia, dwarf pongol (still doing ok), wisteria, elodea, and 1 sprig of purple waffle & pennywort. I've got some java moss on the way from a bid on ebay, will have than in a week or so.
I'm trying to "thicken up" my community tank at the moment, as I have a molly that may have some fry in a couple weeks. I"m not going to move the fry out of that tank, but I do want to provide extra cover for them so that as many as possible of the clever and strong ones make it past snack size!
Mine aren't aquascaped either, okay i tried to make my new 5 gallon look nice but i think i might have failed. I don't even take things like lighting into consideration, i probably should in the future. I have an amazon sword in my 3 gallon and it's in the wrong substrate (gravel) and is under led lights and that thing is getting massive. i even moved my second sword into that tank to see if it'll grow that well.
i have java fern attached to a rocks and i like 1 of the plants, it has a baby plant growing on one leaf but i don't like the other one for some reason, maybe because it just doesn't look as healthy.
What did you do with your wisteria? did you plant it or leave it free floating? i tried planting mine and it didn't like that too much so then i tried free floating and i didn't like that too much so now it's tied to a piece of upright driftwood. i maybe need to trim off some of the dead and see if that'll encourage it to do better.
I want some moss or some kind because hopefully soon i'll be getting a dwarf puffer and i've read they like moss. so i'm on the lookout for a good deal.
