Anubias species, Java Ferns are undemanding but they're not stem plants
I dont know whats wrong. Wisteria and water sprite just failed. Although my crypt aponogetifolias kept on thriving same too with swords. Bacopa was tried but melted. Sunset hygro, it thrived but turns green and grows a bit slowly.

Gold Finger Definitely rotala varieties! It grows like hell in my super low light tank, faster than even hornwort. Ludwigia... not so much. I'd call it a low-medium light plant and it can be fussy about other factors given only low light. Also, though not a stem and not what you asked, vallisnaria.

Sethjohnson30 Yeah I would say hygrophylia p. as well that stuff grows in my 10g with a 13w cfl in a crapy fixture. I do nothing to this tank everything I toss in there dies if no one takes it.

Darkblade48 I suppose you could try Hygrophila polysperma though I'm not sure why Water Sprite and Wisteria did not work for you, especially if your aquarium can grow Amazon Swords and Cryptocoryne species...

Extremely low light stem plant.

Is there a stem plant that is vey very low lght tolerant. Wisteria and water sprite failed. Crypts and amazon swords grow well too.
Any suggestions?
