That's really beautiful! It almost reminds me of club moss. How does it make the transition between immersed/submersed? Do you have any sort of substrate or growing medium in there? I think I see some sort of soil, but I'm not sure if it's that or just a mass of Subwassertang. How much did you start out with in that little container? How big is that container? I'm all full of questions. ;-) I actually just started a Subwassertang jar on my lunch break today -- I'm always finding pieces of it floating, so wanted somewhere where I could drop them and grow them out. It's a 1.5 qt jar. They're in water, but this might be a fun experiment as well!

Sooo much cooler emergent! I never liked it before, now I must have it, but emergent lol
Looks like flame sorta standing up like that, only better. The bright green is a great contrast too like you said... somewhere in another dimension

Its grown in a deli cup on a personal mix of substrate. It was roughly a golfball to start and makes a nice 4" X4" portion. This particular ones 6 months old.

It would probably grow like a weed in my terrarium with all the moisture in it.

Yeah I have mini pellia all over my emersed setup it's like a weed in there. I just put a couple pieces in each pot I like it better than miss because it isn't as invasive.

Yes. I also like Notocyphus for its color and form emergent and Mini rose makes a pretty cool low carpet too. I have a few pics of them I can put up in a minute...

Oh wow, it always amazes me to see the difference between submerged and emerged growth on various plants. I always kinda liked subwassertang submerged, but this is really cool!
