I completely agree. I've only been able to go by others' photos of the plants and measurements of mature plants found online. It just came down to taking a chance and trying to work it in, or just...

It is a rather beautiful erio that I would like to try eventually. The only reason I haven't tried it is due to its size fully grown, but now I have a larger tank that this would grow well in. In my...

A whorled leaf arrangement is three or more leaves per node. While a decussate leaf arrangement is pairs of leaves at one node, but it is opposite at the next leaf node by a 90 degree angle. It ends...

The stems in your photo have a whorled leaf arrangement, which 'Nanjenshan' has. Both of the stems pictured on APC have a decussate leaf arrangement.

It is Azolla, but do not know which species. I've never grown it, so I cannot comment on them being a nuisance or not.

I agree with Hybridherp that Elodea sp. are generally good for this type of experiment. Same with many of the Cabomba species. Ceratophyllum demersum or C. submersum may work as well since it tends...

It appears to be a Hemianthus sp. It may be Hemianthus glomeratus, but it looks like it only has two leaves per node whereas H. glomeratus has three leaves per node. If that is the case it could be...

It appears to be Didiplis diandra, but I am not completely positive. If you can get a closer shot of the stems it would be helpful.

If it helps at all, this is what I do to grow many of the other species for the long term. Like Centromochlus stated, they are fragile. The rhizoids are very small and easily damaged, and most don't...

That's the one, thank you very much! It does look like a rather nice plant to work with for an aquarium, so I look forward to trying it out.

I have been getting a fair amount of new growth coming from the Fissidens grandifrons. It took the better part of a month to start growing, and even then it is very slow relative to other mosses....

Both of those are beautiful tanks, nice work! The addition of the rock on the right does look good.

The first plant picture is Symplocarpus foetidus (skunk cabbage). It is actually a rather interesting plant if you read about it. The sixth plant picture appears to be some sort of Iris sp.

I'm pretty sure that is Echinodorus parviflorus 'tropica'. It is not a rhizomatous plant, so that would be the crown at the base. It looks like the crown is alright, so what you might be seeing is...

I run the UVL red sun on my 4 bulb fixture with a UVL indigo sun for the noon burst. On its own it is too red, but looks fine to me when it has another bulb to balance out the look of the tank.

It is Utricularia gibba, a somewhat common hitchhiker that takes over. Manual removal is the only way I know to get rid of it, and it takes some patience to do.
