Plants on wood

Hello, I am new to this forum but have found it extreemly useful so far. Can anyone suggest plants that can be attached to bogwood beside: Java moss, java fern, anubia barteri var nana and willow moss? Thanks Nemomom

African Fern(Bolbitis heudelotii ) in another one. It is a slow grower and supposedly likes a current. Other than that, it is one of those hard to kill plants .

Welcome to the Planted Tank Nemomom!

Right on with the African fern! The plant loves a good current running across it's leaves. It really thrives in a current!

Riccia fluitans can be attached to some types of rock and/or driftwood. But I've heard it takes quite a bit of effort with tying or weighing it down (its a floating plant). But established tanks that have riccia firmly attached to rock or driftwood always catch my attention. I'll be attempting this in the 80g.

A warning though, Riccia (or crystalwort) is suggested mostly for experienced aquascapers due to its demanding nature regarding light, co2, etc.... It'll even start to die if you let it get too bushy under certain lighting setups .


HTH,

The ricca never really attaches itself, riccia doesn't grow roots
Its basically tired with a hair net of some sort to the wood/rock and it'll grow to cover the net, after about 1" of length more or less depending on light intensity, the bottom part recieves no light so it starts to rot which will cause the whole plant to float up
You just have to give it a trim before this happens and it'll stay alive fine
