Elatine triandra vs. hydropiper


I'm looking to buy some Elatine hydropiper, and I already have some Elatine triandra growing nicely. Now, since it's rather expensive, I want to make sure I won't kill it after getting it. Is there any difference in difficulty of growing the two? I.e, if I can grow one, can I for sure grow the other?

well see as no one can grow EH, I'd say it's a lot harder. Tom Barr is the only USA guy I know that had success with it. I had a full carpet on the ET so I know I can grow that. EH is on it's way from ADG, so I'll be able to tell you more in a few weeks.

I acquired a quarter size patch of EH form a club member and it died in my immersed setup in a few weeks.

never heard of this plant, i can grow the ET very easily, but never ever tried the Elatine hydropiper, is it really expensive? if anyone is ordering it we can split the order.

It's actually not at a bad price. I will sell some if I can grow it.
