Just as a quick disclaimer, I am aware that I have a problem.... I bought too many plants for my little 20 gallon to handle... but hey thats life haha. Just so you know I plan on taking all the pots out and planting a terricota basin with them to have a wabikusa of sorts outside and give it to my dad for his birthday.
So without further ado, lets get to the fun part...
Over the last 2 weeks I've been getting plant packages in the mail like crazy:
-C. Balansae (kind with red stem)
-C. Nurii "Pahang Mutated"
-C. Nurii "normal"
-C. Wendtii "Green Gecko"
-C. Balansae some with red stem, some without. (I purchase 10, but Coltonor wanted to give me a hard time, so he gave me closer to 15. which I didn't mind one bit
-A big mix bag
~I think a mix between Green gecko, and maybe some nurii.
-C. Wendtii "Mii Oya" - looks more like affinis "metallic Red" See pictures on bottom.
-Hygrophila Corymbosa "Siamensis"
-C. Balansae "Red" (Now that I see it, I'm not positive that its the rarer, red leafed variety, but I'll see, fingers crossed)
-C. Lutea, it was soo big lol... I was hoping for a nice foregroundish plant to put in between my rocks.... Yeah not gonna happen, these are each about 8 inches tall. ( I think I was thinking of C. Nevillii or C. Lucens.
-Stem Plant #1
-Stem Plant #2
-C. Affinis "Metallic Red"
-Hygrophila sp "Brown"
-"True" Dwarf Sagittaria
So in case you didn't notice, I have alot of plants in my wee little 20 gallon.
Warning- growout pots in tank Severely damage aesthetic appeal!
Coltonor's Wendtii "Mii Oya" which looks like affinis to me?? Its a beaut either way.
C. Affinis "Metallic Red" -I've never owned any fish plant so red before
.They were in spectacular condition with several runners!
That was really my issue with so many plants, most people gave extras. The people on this sight are so nice to deal with!
"True Dwarf Sagittaria" interspersed with my granite makes for a nice contrast.
C. Nurii "Normal"
C. Nurii "Pahang Mutated"
Hygro Brown on left, New Stem #1 in the middle and New Stem #2 on the right.
C. Ballansae Patch, This was after the major trim, I can't wait for it to really fill in. They earn their keep by hiding the filter well.
Hygrophila Corymbosa with Siamensis being very small on the right hand side. Siamensis seems to get a redder stem.
