Thanks Devin. I think the regular Ruellia is going to bloom soon as well. I had to snip the tips because it's getting a bit tall. These suckers grow fast!

Yep they grow like crazy. You can just chop the top right off and then it will grow back more full and bushy. The cuttings are real easy to root by just sticking them in a trellis raft. After they have new roots you can plant them back into a planter with gravel. Ruellia is a real good one for cleaning the water because it grows so fast

Nice job on those last pics. Watermarks look tasteful too.

Never argue with a fool. Onlookers often can't tell the difference.
Growing older is mandatory, growing up is optional.
My advice is free and worth every penny.

Late night update on this tank. The Riparium plants are growing outta control!! I've wacked some of it off already but it just keeps growing haha. The MQ foreground has finally filled in along with some patches of Staurogyne repens up in the mix.

I also took out off all the mini xmas moss that were on the DW because for some reason, they would not take hold of the wood at all.

Here's how things are looking:
