I'd love to have a little moss ball just adrift in my tank. The only ones I ever saw in a shop were too much $$... I think they were about $15 or $18 EACH!

And there are lots of other plants I've seen that I'd like to try in my tanks. Just like in my yard (biggest yard I've ever had... 1/3 acre! lol) I have lots of shrubs & other plants... I keep going to the nurseries and getting more plants. I think to myself, "I'll put them in somewhere" and buy more and more. I still have LOTS of plants in pots.... I keep upgrading them to bigger pots as they grow. So, I can see this happening with my tanks.... I see a plant and think I don't have anywhere to put it. But get it anyway and float it until I can figure out what to do with it. In the meantime, my other plants will probably start to die from lack of light due to the floating plants. Well, that would solve my problem of what to do with them, wouldn't it! lol

I love my banana plant, it's so cute and always looks so healthy. Mine is in the process of shooting up another lily pad. i trimmed the other 1 because it had grown so long it's stalk was taking over the tank.

Mine is busy sending out runners to have tiny baby plants too. You see the lighter colour shoots next to the banana bits, those are runners for new plants. i have 3 right now. I have mine with the bananas half pressed into the substrate.

I want another, too! DX I love these.

I want to propogate and grow my own, but Im getting mixed info on how to do it...
And I think some methods only grow rooted lily pads, and I want the tubers,too!
(I think they may need seeding/above water fertilization for it, booooo)

i was told on the planted tank forum that mine was busy propagating. The person said that the 3 light coloured things at the banana roots were the mother sending out runners. apparently new plants grow from the runners and then you just trim the new plants off. I was also told that they flower but it's hard to get them to do it.
