    Emerged / Paludarium plants

    Anyone know a good source for emerged mosses and plants for the parts of my 135 that are above the waterline?

    I have some star moss. I might be able to get you some cuttings from my vivarium and paludarium. Xmas moss does well emersed too.

    Pink Fittonia (Nerve Plant) and Pennywort. Depending on how humid it stays above the tank I have others too.

    In case it is of interest this is the top of a piece of cork I have floating in my tank. You can see several of the aquatic mosses, floating plants and other small foreground plants have climbed out and are happy enough up there so you might experiment.

    Thanks, those are all awesome! I am not sure how humid it will be. The java fern that was sticking up above the water looked like it was drying out already.

    The pink fittonia I have 2 on a window shelf in the kitchen, doesnt need humidity. The star moss should do alright.

    Finally migrated my emersed setup into the sunglass case! Around 2x the space of my other one and it has a nice lid now to propagate the ar some more and setup a chamber for growing monte Mats.

    Can I tag along? A paludarium is in my future. I also need to learn more about emersed plants.
