Macro shots of my plants


I am in no way experienced. These are just some of the really nice shots. When the conditions were right and the moons aligned, the best shots were taken

Some are not entirely macro

Ammannia Garcilis





Riccia



Rotala Indica



Macrenda (cant remember spelling)



Limp. Aromatica or Stellatus I think



Narrow Leaf Java Fern




Just wanted to share.

Your Rotala Indica is actually Rotala Rotundifolia.

Nice shots, though.

Thank you guys. My Ludwigia sp. Rubin is turning really nice colours but it in the background, so itl be hard taking macros of it. Ill try, if it turns out good, Ill post here

Snow the riccia shot was a surprise to me. I took a quick pic in btw my lights for a plant sale. When I opened the image and zoomed in a little it turned out to be pretty nice. The original size of these pics is like 4000x2700 or something. I resized them so I dont crash the forum. I really like how the riccia has waves Serious weed though (it floats around, never managed to tie it down)
