That's very possible considering the majority of invasive species here are from Cuba. Plants and animals that is, people, well I think most of our invasive people are from somewhere around Wisconsin and also NY.

There are so many invasive species down here that they make Cubans look endemic and in some cases endangered.

Do I need any special parameters in my tank to grow HC?

After all I am getting it for free.

Temp: 78 degrees.
Ph: 7.6

I really don't measure anything else. Though I might in the near future if I go hi-tech.

I just recently planted HC, Micro Sword and Pigmy chain in my low tech tank and the HC is the one plant that is doing the best. I dose with Excel every other day and have 2wpg.

I just leaned that HC (Hemianthus Callitrichoides) is called Dwarf BabyTears

I use marsilea hirsuta for low light grouncover.. It is a pretty good looking plant in my opinion.. no co2, or high light is needed..

My HC responds very positively to excel. It loves it.
