|GadgetGirl||Being as this is a low light plant list in the low tech forum, I don't think it would be that difficult, for an expert, that is. Presumably no one here would be using CO2.|

How about developing a list of plants in order of general light tolerance starting from the lowest?

The list should be seen as an opinion, which is not necessarily correct. For example, HC- Hemianthus callitrichoides will not grow well at all without CO2 and with low light. And, many of the stem plants listed will grow, but will be a big disappointment, with low light and no CO2 or Excel.
When this list was started, and added to, people were judging light intensity solely by watts per gallon, without even a universal agreement on what watts per gallon meant low light. We have progressed considerably since then.

Is this list still considered a good directory of plants to grow in low/med light with no co2?

|dpod||I'm loving this list- I just set up a low-tech tank and I'd love to add more than the crypts, vals, and anubias nana that's in there now. However, I'm thinking I should've added soil. Do you have any suggestions for fertilizing a simple gravel-bottomed tank?|

|Seena||Very good listing. Was pondering with the idea of setting up a garden for a very long time. These suggestions should help.|

|CluelessAquarist||Hoppy and OVT, thanks for clearing that up. I was worried that I was supposed to cut my stems bare before planting :P|
|05-30-2014 05:39 AM|
If I do get stem plants with roots, I do cut most, if not all of the roots, off before planting. The existing roots will most likely rot anyways.
With rozette plants like swords, I trim the roots to about 2", just long enough to keep the plant in the substrate.
The above does not apply to rizhome plants like anubias and ferns and I tend to leave the roots of crypts alone.
