Interesting to hear your experience with the pogo k is quite similar to mine. Had 3 stems going pretty good then stunted. Now I have about 10. For me it was when I lowered all my dosing. Back to my 30-8-30 ish dosing and they are rocking.

Glad to see them doing well!

This is a feature of many pogostemon species.
Some parameter change occurs and the tops stunt sending off side shoots.
Seems like a survival mechanism for them.

Right now about 4-5". Gonna let them "grow up" a bit more and see how they fit in that spot. If I get a chance tonite, might also check PAR levels at the top of the plant.

Was getting ready to go do yard work, looked over at the tank and realized - hey, thats really starting to look like something. Figured I would share. Hope to do some more trimming tomorrow - several groups are getting a bit too tall

Beautiful tank Linn, I really like the variety of colors and the free form of the plants. Well done!

Pre weekend pics - just for fun.
Was noticing the Bacopa Colorata was looking much more pink than in past pictures




Kinda blows my mind that there are only 3 stems of Pogo Kimberly there

So I've got a low tech tank with bacopa colorata (maybe just caroliniana who knows) and in the morning it's pink/magentaish but it's pale green when the lights are winding down... I am not really sure what to make of that.

That is a bit odd. I have move some stems of Bacopa caroliniana into one of the low tech tanks and they stay green (more or less). The one thing I did notice is the leaf size gets much smaller in the low tech environment. This seems to have applied to several different types of plants.

I have not tried Bacopa colorata in a low tech tank yet - might have to try that some time.

Linn the tank is really hitting it's stride.

Might be time for some timeline photos. Much like my tank, yours has changed quite a bit over the years.

I remember when it was dominated by crypts/swords/ferns.

Quite an evolution, and a job well done!
