For those familiar with barclaya longifolia- does it look like this plant has some daughter bulbs? Seeing these smaller leaves that look like when I first got some small bulbs in.

Also, does this plant stay strong year round, or does it go dormant from time to time?

Mine stays strong all year.

If you pull the whole clump, you will have a bunch of smaller bulbs in there.

Pull them off and plant them and you could replant them. But then they would take over the entire tank!!

Good to know! Is there any harm in leaving the smaller bulbs with the mother plant for a while?

No, it will just get thicker. I pull them to tame it a bit.

Deep cleaning and some rearranging this weekend. Always seems to shine after some good TLC!

Couple weeks and it will be overgrown yet again!

The tank keeps getting better and better!

I like how the Crypts are creeping into the carpet. Never noticed them before but it's a good use.

Thanks! I am glad you mentioned the crypts in the grass. This is actually the exact look I was going for, just took a while for them to take well. Right now with the foreground I am trying to keep a more. natural transition. That is, until I get to the stems in the back! Then it is back to grouping.

I have never tried making the whole tank look more 'natural' and less grouped and sectioned. Hmm... maybe another time?

They appear to be Cryptocoryne wendtii. Iím not sure of the variant.

Best regards,

Yes, I believe it is wendtii bronze. The high light is helping it keep keep color and compact. Digging the vibe!

Just a few from tonight. Enjoying this tank and the great pictures with the early dark outside. Easy to have less glare!

Everyone doing well, healthy and happy.

Hygrophila balsamica starting to settle in after melting very hard the first week or two. Hope it takes as I want to swap it to the back if it fills in well.
