I'll edit the first post to reflect the change. Do note that the original post was from 2006 (10 years ago!) so some things are bound to be broken.

Here is the (new) link for your reference: All Plants - Plant Profiles
Absolutely, I figured it was just an age thing, but also figured if it was going to be stickied, we might want to fix it.

Thanks!

SL Dan This is the link I get from the tool bar and it seems to work (I'm using the default theme):

All Plants - Plant Profiles

I didn't realize this forum had such a database until seeing this thread today. Good to know!

Mariostg @duce, @Capecrusher
I reported it a few days ago on the thread discussing the new forum look
http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/18...ml#post8405058

I hope they are working on it.

Thank you,

I think the link should be:

I recently begun to grow plants emersed in planter, HOB, planter above the tanks, and was considering starting a thread enumeratisng plants that can grow in riparium/HOB, etc. There is information on the forum, but it's really all over the place. I wish this website had a wiki.

I was thinking that if a category called Emersed in the Position Selection list of the plant profile creation, that it would be beneficial to ID the plants that can be grown as such. I would suppose that the term emersed would encomapass plants that can grow with roots only in water...

Browsing through the forum, here is a small list of plants I could find that from what I read are grown with feet only in water:

Aluminum plant
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)
Creeping fig
Cyperus Umbrella Sedge
Dragon's tongue (Hemigraphis repanda)
Dwarf Palm Neanthe Bella
Fiber Optic Grass (Scirpus cernuus)
Fittonia
Impatiens
Lucky bambo (Dracaena Sanderiana)
Nephthytis
Oplismenus basket Grass (Oplismenus hirtellus 'Variegatus')
Peace lily
pepperomia
philodendron
Pilea dieffenbachia
Pothos (several variations) technically gets long not tall(vine) but can be trimmed easily
Purple heart
Purple passion vine
Purple waffle (Hemigraphis 'Exotica')
Red Water Dock (Rumex sanguineus)
Riccia
Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie'
Spathiphyllum
Spathiphyllum "domino'
Spider plant
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Sweet potato vine
Syngonium
Wandering jew (Tradescantia zebrine + few other variations of Tradescantia)vine

Even a more simple version of it will work well I believe. I also agree that a link to this should be on the tool bar of the forum, perhaps near where the "New Posts" button is. This will be in the view of most people while they are using the forum and would be a great feature to use. I think there should be some sorting options available, I think the best options would be to be able to sort them by amount of light needed to grow, and difficultly.

The database is very good if you have a specific plant in mind, but if you're looking to say stock your tank or are looking for a style of plant, basically your only option is to scroll through 175 plant profiles and read thru each comment to find out how big it gets/light requirements....in this case you're better off googling the style or something
Please! This is a great idea from way back.

Link Plant Database with Tank Tracker?

The plant database is great, it woudl awesome if you could link it with the tank tracker. I've been looking for something to keep track of my plants with a link to obtain technical details.

TheKribKeeper Can you create a plant database category for tapatalk? It does not show up when using that app. At least I have yet to find it.
