Stargrass - Heteranthera zosterifolia is under stem plants. Thank you for the information on growth rate in lower light. Can you tell how long you have had the bulb? Relevency of bulb age can determine plant growth.

Lightbulb My idea for the future of the list

Here is my idea of how I want to start setting up the list(just a rough outline from a sick teen). Any feedback or ideas are welcome, this was done with paint only.

No problem. Im going over layouts of how this can be done to look neat, professional, and be helpful. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas please post or pm me. Im going to be adding another layout idea once I get it started. Im thinking even just making a website dedicated to the lowlight plant list idea.

The chart looks good. I agree with herosipet about pictures. Link the names to pictures of the plant to google search engine or something so people can get a quick idea of what this plant is.

You know what might be easier in the long run? Plus more beneficial for the forum at large? Making sure that each of the plants listed is in the plants profile section- then you can just list plant names and categorize them as far as 'scape placement, as in your first link...

Excuse me for interrupting this thread. OMG, I had no idea . I looked at your link, did you write that up about the painted fish?
I knew it was a horrendous disgusting practice. But didn't know the extent of it, and I didn't realize they do it to so many different types of fish! They also do this to corals, and they use cyanide to stun saltwater fish for capture in many places. So sad..
