I like this Proserpinaca palustris "Maryland'. Its like some Myrio and the regular version had a baby, not too weedy either.



Gonna try to use balsamica in back somewhere, pretty cool plant. Its just growing out right here

@burr740 - really like the coloring you are getting with the Ludwigia polycarpa - hoping mine gets close to that. And of course, I am always a sucker for the brick red of the Rubens.

Polycarpa is a real keeper IMHO.
Wait it out and the tops will be red like peruensis!

I think balsamica is toxic in emersed form, all cultures I've seen for sale @ LFS were already transitioned to submerged growth.
Think your "Dutch" buddy Bart? had a lot of this in a tank he entered.

Awesome looking plants Joe!
If you're lacking for update materials just post some plant pics for all to enjoy.
You could be like @Greggz and always post Phish?

Hygrophila balsamica - Nice! Hope that eventually ends up on your for sale threads.

Hi burr - haven't been keeping up on the forums but saw you are experimenting with lower kh? Curious what your current Fe/micro dosing is and if you've seen a difference in the levels required? N, P, and K too I guess.

In all the smaller tanks is one 6500K and one flora type. The tanks with 4 bulbs have combos consisting of - 3000K, Powerveg 633/660, ATI purp, 420 actinic, floras, and yeah the farm 75 has one 6500K. The main tank doesnt

I havent noticed a difference in any requirements since lowering KH really. Doesnt mean there arent any. All I can say is everything in general seems to like the lower KH

Current micros, 3x week
Fe - .15
Mn - .038
B - .047
Zn - .036
Cu - .0025
Mo - .0013
Ni - .0005

Macros, 3x week:
3 ppm KNO3
1.4 ppm PO4
3 ppm K
.4 N from urea

This equals roughly 15 ppm per week of NO3 and K

10 ppm Mg with water changes (~4-5 in the tap) Ca ~ 40 ppm in the tap

KH 0-1 acid washed down from about 6

Hi Phil. See above

Here's some pics

Ammannia pedicellata



Rotala tunuladensis. This is one of the rarest Rotalas in the hobby. Growing pretty nice lately

Hey Joe those are some really great looking plant pics. You always have had a knack for getting the best out of so many species.

How long have you been at 15ppm NO3 weekly?

Going lower? Or do you feel you are near the bottom?

Hopefully it becomes a little less rare, that's a great looking plant. Also that Pantanal photo is sweet!

Sahyadrica kind of like a twin to tulunadensis is the harder one to grow.
Tulunadensis can handle a lot of abuse too and recover well.

This plant is hard to find and I don't think commercially available yet.
It ships poorly IMO, even 2 days USPS it shows some decline.
Very soft leaved rotala.

Joe, did you get yours from Vin?
Think Vin shipped some to Phil when he re-started his tank.

Yeah, I've got a couple stems hanging around. It's a terrible shipper and is still trying to find it's happy place in my tank.

5-6 weeks now. Before that I was at 18 for a couple months, maybe longer. I havent noticed any difference going down to 15

Will I go any lower? Probably not. Maybe. Who knows! LOL

No immediate plants to reduce it again though

I just had to tell you, after looking at the list of plants you just put up for sale, the Cabomba furcata has to be the most spectacular plant I have seen on this forum.

I know my low tech tank would quickly kill it- but, whoever gets those plants from you should be very, very happy.
Kudos! Your plants are amazing.
