Time of the year for blooms?


So many of the emersed grown plants have begun to flower and I thought I'd share a few pics of the flowers with ya'll.

BTW, ER just got in the new Seachem Aquavitro line of fertilizers. Outside a lack of straight potassium, and what seems low phosphates, the line seems pretty straight forward for low tech tanks. Also, they have a product called Envy, which is basically the freshwater version of Fuel for saltwater, and if it performs in fw as it does in sw, then I will likely start dosing it. We shall see....

Anyways...enjoy the pics


First up, its Pennywort that I picked up at the San Marcos River. This was actually the first plant to bloom (Mid-July). This plant can grow extremely fast in emersed set ups once it has established itself.






And second, a limnophila aromatica flower. Whats interesting is their similar shape to snap dragons.

You have some great looking plants, and flowers. I would like to see more, and would love to hear about your emersed growth setup. I have recently started an indoor emersed grow box. It is doing good, but very basic. Your plant growth looks great.

Is that a Bacopa in the upper right corner, and maybe repens?
