Hey those look like potentially good choices.
I have tried four different Syngonium
. They were all similar but with variations in leaf color. Two of them did well and are still growing, and the other two varieties failed to root at all in the riparium planters and ended up just starting to rot from the bases up. Non of the ones that I bought were labelled for variety. Syngonium
can be real good riparium choices, but you might have to do a little trial-and-error to find varieties that will work.
That looks a lot like leather fern. Was it being sold as a pond plant? I was surprised just last week to see real live leather fern for sale as a pond marginal at a Milwaukee LFS, Aquatics Unlimited
. All indications are that that is an excellent riparium plant as a robust centerpiece, until it starts to grow huge.
If that is actual leather fern you will probably have no trouble growing it. If it is some sort of look-alike it is more than likely a terrestrial or epiphyte that may have a difficult time in hydroculture.
Hey Hoppy I haven't forgotten about your care package of riparium goodies. I just waylaid with some traveling and other stuff I hope to get it shipped off soon.
