The rest of my emersed plants have been doing very well too!! The last batch of crypts I received have been doing well! I did lose one plant. They weren't labeled and some looked very similar so I'm not 100% sure which plant I lost! :/ oh well... Hahaha...
C. griffithii has been doing very well! I don't know if this plant just has a quick growth rate, if it just rebounded from shipping really well, or if it didn't have to transition from submersed to emersed like some of my other crypts. Could be all three...
Here are a few of the other crypts & buce in the 55!
The four Buce varieties I've got almost all lost their leaves while transitioning from submersed to emersed growth. They were also replanted once I got the hydroton. I'm guessing most Bucephalandra do better submerged, thoughts?
The 20L is growing like crazy!!
The Bacopa caroliniana is obviously doing insanely well! It has been blooming like crazy! I did a large trim and totally replanted my no-tech vase! More on that later though!
B. colorata has seen a steady increase in growth rate! Finally had some to share with another member, also replanted some in this tank! You can also see the Rotala rotundifolia has been growing a little better too. The A. reineckii doesn't seem to like the lower light level as much as the high light it was originally under.
This thing is growing leaves from several areas of the rhizome.
Here is my vase that I just replanted today. It's a little cloudy. I accidentally dosed way too much Flourish yesterday morning, which lead to what I guess is the start of an algae bloom. This vase is a no-tech tank! It only gets natural sunlight, diffused by a closed set of white blinds. So I replanted the whole vase, adding a ton more Bacopa caroliniana, some rotala rotundifolia, some glosso. The vase already had some small java fern plants: a large crinkled leaf version, a crypt willisii x lucens & a bit of dwarf hairgrass too!
Here are a couple pictures! These don't look to awesome, I think this vase needs a week or so to grow. This will allow all the Bacopa stems to straighten up some. What do you think? I will eventually dig up the journal for this vase, from when I first started it!
