I don't grow to sell, but I can imagine that business would probably be better if you specialized in one particular "type" of plant. I say "type" because you could collect every species of that type including the harder to find specimens. For example all rhizome plants like Buces and Anubias. Or collect and grow just mosses and liverworts. Or all the swords and other leafy plants that propogate with runners. Unless you have the space for multiple, I think this would probably make you more money, if only for the reduced overhead involved.

To answer your other question, it probably doesn't matter what you grow them in as long as you're physically able to carry out your routine maintenance and pruning/propogating.

Thank you for the reply I was think a lowboy just for more foot print for more plants . I was thinking I wonít need as much light with only being 10Ē deep. Iím also going to drill it for a sump

I love that tank but I was thinking about using it for shell dwellers like multies. Do you know what they are asking for it?
