so i recieved my glosso and ludwigia peruensis today from aquariumplants.com. the ludwigia was in ok condition, but the glosso looks horrible. i don't know if it will come around. i can only hope so. here are some photos of it. can i have your opinion?


here is the peruensis. for some reason, it looks A LOT like hygrophila corymbosa or alternanthera reineckii. what to you experts think?? did i get ripped?


again, here are the new additions with their positions in the tank, and then a photo without the horrible circles:

With the glosso, spread it out. You need to plant each stem about a 1/4" apart. It is a royal PITA and you will need tweezers! But it dose look great when it fills in

i don't think i can, given the crappy condition the glosso is in.. it's so fragile and lifeless. maybe i will be able to once it revives. what do you think?

I would send an email/phone call to the vendor and let them know the condition of plants if you havent, I dont know what the glosso will do planted like that.

That glosso does not look so hot. Is it just the picture or it sort of a lime green / yellow looking?
I am no expert but I thinkk your glosso started to melt in the box.

On a lighter note the tank will look real good given some time to grow out.
But in the journal the 2nd photo the neon anus is a little disturbing

that "perunsis" looks a lot like the "peruvian ludwigia" we sell in the store, i'm not sure of the latin, but it looks right judging by the name.

Yes it does. I bought some from the Fish Place and it is has turned deep red. So much so that it make the red temple in the tank look pale and washed out. IME the plant leans a little and doesn't produce side shoots.

alright, well i pulled all the glosso as i should be receiving some on 8/16 from snailpoo. i re-arranged my tank as well as i felt there was a lack of aquascape. who knows. the tank is pretty cloudy, but that's from re-arranging.

a lot of the leaves from the peruensis have fallen off. hopefully it will come back. i moved the crypts behind the driftwood and on the right side. you can't really see them because they're still so tiny. this is SUCH a baby tank.

I like the current look and once the glosso arrvies and gets established it should be even better. I wouldnt move those crypts around too much right now. I have learned that certain crypts might not do too well if they are moved. They could 'melt'.
