The database is very good if you have a specific plant in mind, but if you're looking to say stock your tank or are looking for a style of plant, basically your only option is to scroll through 175 plant profiles and read thru each comment to find out how big it gets/light requirements....in this case you're better off googling the style or something
Please! This is a great idea from way back.

Is this still being worked on? Seems like a lot of plants are still missing, I have been attempting to ID several plants I own and didn't want to post a "Plant ID" thread so stumbled on this, and doesn't look like this "database" has any of them sadly. I also agree with hoppy that something similar to what is found here : http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...c/plantfinder/ would be very nice to have. Even a more simple version of it will work well I believe. I also agree that a link to this should be on the tool bar of the forum, perhaps near where the "New Posts" button is. This will be in the view of most people while they are using the forum and would be a great feature to use. I think there should be some sorting options available, I think the best options would be to be able to sort them by amount of light needed to grow, and difficultly.

I recently begun to grow plants emersed in planter, HOB, planter above the tanks, and was considering starting a thread enumeratisng plants that can grow in riparium/HOB, etc. There is information on the forum, but it's really all over the place. I wish this website had a wiki.

I was thinking that if a category called Emersed in the Position Selection list of the plant profile creation, that it would be beneficial to ID the plants that can be grown as such. I would suppose that the term emersed would encomapass plants that can grow with roots only in water...

Browsing through the forum, here is a small list of plants I could find that from what I read are grown with feet only in water:

Aluminum plant
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)
Creeping fig
Cyperus Umbrella Sedge
Dragon's tongue (Hemigraphis repanda)
Dwarf Palm Neanthe Bella
Fiber Optic Grass (Scirpus cernuus)
Fittonia
Impatiens
Lucky bambo (Dracaena Sanderiana)
Nephthytis
Oplismenus basket Grass (Oplismenus hirtellus 'Variegatus')
Peace lily
pepperomia
philodendron
Pilea dieffenbachia
Pothos (several variations) technically gets long not tall(vine) but can be trimmed easily
Purple heart
Purple passion vine
Purple waffle (Hemigraphis 'Exotica')
Red Water Dock (Rumex sanguineus)
Riccia
Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie'
Spathiphyllum
Spathiphyllum "domino'
Spider plant
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Sweet potato vine
Syngonium
Wandering jew (Tradescantia zebrine + few other variations of Tradescantia)vine
