I'm glad he moved him to a safer area, both for the snake and the locals.

Very well recorded and awesome pics (as usual sumer).
The plant(s) looks like they are from a fairy land.

When I seen the snake, I was like, how cute!
But then again, I'm partial to cobras

Here's the much awaited update:
So after 6 months or so, all of them have flower buds on them
Now only if I'd be able to extract the seeds.
Any suggestions for doing that?

Are they growing in Amazonia? What is the water chemistry? Are they submerged or emersed?
Fantastic photos and well documented!

Hey Bill,
Yes they are in amazonia.
So this is how it started: I planted the seeds in several small containers. I put them at several different places. First one went in my tank, second in an emmersed salad box and one in sunlight.
The one which went in the tank had plantlets in a month. Others never showed any signs of germination.
Then after 2 months I had to dismantle my tank. So I took out this small container and placed it in my salad box emmersed setup. I keep filling the erio container with 5 pH water every month or so.


It is thriving there since then. Spirogyra has covered the substrate layer.
It does seem like a small plant but their root structure is super big.


Now its about extracting the seeds. I tried reading on the net but couldn't find anything significant. I was tried to do the same thing with the parkeri flower and this is how it looks:


Anyone from the Botanical background? ANy help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Sumer.

You mean seeds? Whenever I will have them..
The plants may die after they have flowered or they might not. They might go dormant maybe. I dont know whats gonna happen to them.
If I will have seeds, I will be glad to share it with you all.

I think I would try and let one of the plants go through all of the flowering stages. If the stalk starts to die pluck it and alow the flower to dry in the air. That's all I can think of its how I have have harvested seeds in the past.
