    Talking Thank you

    I want to say thank you very much to those that donated the new plans for my new tank at the mini meet. I was given some beautiful red stem plant I believe it was a Rotella. Some small variety of what I believe are a small Anubis absolutely perfect for what I was looking for. A cool and unique stem plant of some kind that had flotation bladders and seriously argued with me when I tried to plant it because it desperately wants to float. A nice piece of HC. A clump of moss. And another stem plant with very fine leaves that I'm also not sure of. Again thank you very much it is very much appreciated. If those that you that wonderfully gave to the cause, could you please let me know the common and Technical names of these plants I would greatly appreciate it so that I can make sure that they get the proper care. Again thank you very much, you are all very much appreciated.

    Hi James....I think you have hygroriza aristata which is a floater... pointed leaves with a “swim bladder”... if so let it float and it will pretty quickly root itself....

    If you can, post pics of the plants you have and we can ID them.... I know i brought various types of rotala... I think you may have picked up the bag of em..

    Yeah I took about three stems of it it was a bright red very pretty plant. I'm not at home right now so it'll probably be this evening for I can get good pictures.

    Hi Sir,

    Top right, hygroriza aristata (you can just let it float, it’ll anchor itself with a runner)
    Lower left rotala rotundifolia
    Next to that, low laying plant- staurogyne repens...

    Can’t make out the others....

    Mike

    this appears to be Alternathera Reneckii, unsure if it's mini grown in low light or if it's standard.
