HD Blazingwolf colorata leaves are narrower and less colorful than sunset. IMO

HybridHerp hrmmm, not really tbh lol.

I guess the leaf shape of sunset is a bit different....makes sense even though I've never seen it in person.

Yao Yai is rotundifolia though right?

Right now, I have Yao Yai, Routondifolia, and colorata....all doing super well for me.

I might replace one of those with Sunset in the future....what makes sunset hard exactly?

Also, any pics of brazilian swords?
No, 'Colorata' is a Rotala rotundifolia variety. 'Sunset' is most likely a Rotala ramosior variety. Confusing eh?

HybridHerp Also, I had to double check but, I thought brazilian swords were not true aquatics?

ADJAquariums I don't see a lot of Brazillian Sowrds out there. I personally have one and a source for more

acitydweller Something to consider... some folks who have exotic stuff don't necessarily know how to ship it so it may likely come melted, damaged or dead.

Yes its often said that certain plants dont ship well but it can also be said that the shipper being inexperienced, or ignorant.

I agree with seeing the same ole stuff being rehashed tho... which is one of several reasons why i am taking on more difficult species. For what other reason would one be ROAK'ing all their plants away

Rare plants

So, I feel like most of the plants we see around this forum tend to be, well, the same kinda stuff over and over.

So, since I am more or less wanting to collect whatever cool plants I can in my 75 (even though its mostly filled), I wanna know what harder to find, cool plants that we don't see very often I should look into.

I already pretty much have everything I want, so now I'm just looking for filler, and my filler can be very interesting at least :P
