Dear Kyle,

It is an amazing service. I like it. It will be fun, I am sure. I am a new member here. I have looked over the forum. This is really a helpful forum. By the way there has some topics without plant. I think they should be placed in another category.

Thanks. :)

Hi -- I love the database. Thank you!

I have a feature suggestion: would it be possible to create a "Favorite" function like what the "your tanks" section has? Or some other way for us to save or bookmark certain plants? I find myself seeing a plant I hadn't thought of and wanting to remember it, but the best way I can find to do so is to bookmark it in my internet browser, and I'm really bad at organizing those and finding things again.

I've been adding my riparium plants to my tank in the tank tracker, will these then show up in the plant database? Think a separate riparium plant section would be good, in plant profiles and in the tank tracker.

CO2 lowers pH.
CO2 + H2O <=> H2CO3 (carbonic acid) <=> H+ (proton) + HCO3- (bicarbonate ion)

your CO2 goes off, CO2 outgases, carbonic acid (which exists in equilibrium) converts to CO2, and outgases as well.
pH is not a good indicator of CO2 though. the pH and kh together tell you a decent amount in the absence of phosphates, but you have phosphate in your tank (i hope). you just have to figure out by the plants and animals whether you should have more, less, or are at the right amount.

Link Plant Database with Tank Tracker?

The plant database is great, it woudl awesome if you could link it with the tank tracker. I've been looking for something to keep track of my plants with a link to obtain technical details.

I could not see a subscription like other posts so we can be notified when something new is added plus the ability to just click to go to it.

A suggestion: in the navigation panel on the left make MORE SORTING OPTIONS. Personally I'd like something along the following lines:

tall
medium
short
carpet
high light
low light
medium light
etc

The database is very good if you have a specific plant in mind, but if you're looking to say stock your tank or are looking for a style of plant, basically your only option is to scroll through 175 plant profiles and read thru each comment to find out how big it gets/light requirements....in this case you're better off googling the style or something
Please! :flick: This is a great idea from way back.

Is this still being worked on? Seems like a lot of plants are still missing, I have been attempting to ID several plants I own and didn't want to post a "Plant ID" thread so stumbled on this, and doesn't look like this "database" has any of them sadly. I also agree with hoppy that something similar to what is found here : http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/ would be very nice to have. Even a more simple version of it will work well I believe. I also agree that a link to this should be on the tool bar of the forum, perhaps near where the "New Posts" button is. This will be in the view of most people while they are using the forum and would be a great feature to use. I think there should be some sorting options available, I think the best options would be to be able to sort them by amount of light needed to grow, and difficultly.

Also the plant database could do with some more plants. If you have experience with a plant species not already listed, please take the time and submit a profile:

Thank you,

I think the link should be:

Bump:
Is it possible to add an offshoot of this database for Riparium suitable plants? I know of nothing available anywhere that serves that purpose right now. And, the number of riparium tanks in our group is growing.
I recently begun to grow plants emersed in planter, HOB, planter above the tanks, and was considering starting a thread enumeratisng plants that can grow in riparium/HOB, etc. There is information on the forum, but it's really all over the place. I wish this website had a wiki.

I was thinking that if a category called Emersed in the Position Selection list of the plant profile creation, that it would be beneficial to ID the plants that can be grown as such. I would suppose that the term emersed would encomapass plants that can grow with roots only in water...

Browsing through the forum, here is a small list of plants I could find that from what I read are grown with feet only in water:

Aluminum plant
Chinese evergreen (Aglaonema)
Creeping fig
Cyperus Umbrella Sedge
Dragon's tongue (Hemigraphis repanda)
Dwarf Palm Neanthe Bella
Fiber Optic Grass (Scirpus cernuus)
Fittonia
Impatiens
Lucky bambo (Dracaena Sanderiana)
Nephthytis
Oplismenus basket Grass (Oplismenus hirtellus 'Variegatus')
Peace lily
pepperomia
philodendron
Pilea dieffenbachia
Pothos (several variations) technically gets long not tall(vine) but can be trimmed easily
Purple heart
Purple passion vine
Purple waffle (Hemigraphis 'Exotica')
Red Water Dock (Rumex sanguineus)
Riccia
Ruellia brittoniana 'Katie'
Spathiphyllum
Spathiphyllum "domino'
Spider plant
Spider plant (Chlorophytum comosum)
Sweet potato vine
Syngonium
Wandering jew (Tradescantia zebrine + few other variations of Tradescantia)vine

This likely happened due to the shift of the website a few years ago.

I'll edit the first post to reflect the change. Do note that the original post was from 2006 (10 years ago!) so some things are bound to be broken.

Here is the (new) link for your reference: http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/myPlants.php
