2 stem plants in my tank, ID please! UPDATED - more pretty plant pics (just for fun)


Thought it was about time I knew the names of some of my favorite plants I built this tank by buying out all the trim packages in the sales room I could find and jamming it all in at once. What grew and thrived is what I kept - but I don;t know what some of them are.

the 2 stems that arrows are pointing to - one has wide leaves, the other are long thin and 'grassy' but are a true stem, not a rooted grass like a Val or even a crypt.



Here is the front view of the tank, the long leaves in the back is the thin leafed stem allowed to grow out.

Angustifolia is just a variant of corymbosa btw, so both plants are cared for the same exact way.

Some would call the wider plant corymbosa Siamensis. It has a narrower leaf than normal corymbosa

+1 It is also a smaller plant, about 1/3 the size of the 'regular' H. corymbosa.

details, details, details...

Here, let me correct my post. What I should have said was:

Hygrophilia corymbosa 'angustifolia' and Hygrophilia corymbosa 'Siamensis'

There is a good chance it did! I have had the idea of going back in my pm's and finding out who sent me what - then I could post a thread to show them how they are doing. Keeps falling apart for the amount of thread-chasing work that would take

For example, I know for a fact that this twisty mutant space grass/val/wahtever came from OVT, and the stem (ludwigia?) that is swamping out my HOB did too (there is an Aquaclear 30 under there somewhere)





These giant leafed crypts came from Layout420 I think - the original plant didn't do well but all of it's runners are huge now


Not sure about these little narrow leaf anubias (on the wood), maybe Layout420 again. Took a long time of looking 'stalled', but now they are doing real well and doubled in size


Not sure about this huge anubias mother plant, but my wife calls it the 'bouquet of leaves'


I've always liked this Anubias 'Coffeefolia', one of my first plants to arrive (in a RAOK I think) - almost everything that came with it is probably gone now but this survived my early attempts to kill it and is getting even bigger!
