Thanks Philip! Honestly, not sure. LOL! I got them as a pandanus species. So far they been in the tank for 2 months and they just got thicker not taller. I do not think they can be submerged.

I was thinking it might be a good candidate for my wabikusa-ish bowl, but I'm looking for something with more height. Any suggestions? I'd like a bunch of Murdannia keisak, but no one has any! Floscopa scandens might also work, but I only have 2 stems of it at the moment... and of course, no one has any of that either. You've done WK before-- what plants would you recommend? I'm looking for height, narrow structure, and maybe grass-like. Sorry for de-railing your thread!

Moss was labelled as Singapore moss. Looks like a mini xmas moss when submerged.

Not too sure what emerged plant you are looking at. One is a emerged grown singapore moss and the other grassy looking plant is a type of pandanus (so it says on the label).

Your tank is beautiful! Inspirational as well. Is the Pandanus planted in some type of substrate you have up top? How did you manage to keep them up there?
Are they attached to the driftwood or the rocks? Well crafted

Singapore moss has grown so thick on the driftwood that I just poked the Pandanus sp. thru. They held there long enough that they started rooting down and now are firmly attached.

Fantastic scape, I stumbled onto this today and it is exactly like my scape for a future mini m I drew. It's not often that we see nature aquariums that are this superb on the forum. All your tanks are really great.

What equipment are you running?
