Very interesting journal, thanks for sharing. I have been thinking about doing this as we get more and more species of plants for our tanks. Will continue to study and hopefully get it going soon.

Nice work! I'm definitely subscribed to this thread! I'm currently expanding my emersed project! I hope mine grow as well as yours!

Where do you keep your water level in relation to the surface of your substrate?

it was doing great. but then the setup was neglected, and over time, the water evaporated, and while most condensed back, some did escape and there was no standing water around the pots when i redid the tubs. so many of the plants were suffering from dehydration, and there were only 2 small sprigs of p. helferi left, which i planted in my 20 long.

thank you.
i just did a massive trim on it (plants available in the SnS). didnt take before and after pics, but did notice 2 of my ludwigias flowering and took pics (will post later). the c. wendtii brown flowered again too, but the spathe was rotting - plus thats a common occurrence by now.

thank you. not sure what became of it. either its one of the trident sporophytes in there, or it died.

i noticed. my submersed stem would only give me a shoot a month or so, and grow very slow.
the emersed ones grow at twice the rate, and make clusters of sideshoots all along the stem.
