Whats up guys,

Thinking about starting a new tank, calling it " pearlescent ", and it would feature plants that go absolutely gang busters with pearling given the right parameters.

I think I want to stay away from typical stem plants, like any kind of rotala for this build.

So far the only plants that I can think of that go absolutely crazy are Blyxa and pearl weed. I have seen both of those go bonkers.

Any other plants that you can think of that give off pearls like crazy?

Thanks guys

Looking in my 40L as I read this post, three come to mind.
Golden Nesaea, Staurogyne Bihar, and ambulia.
The only thing not pearling in my tank is the buce.

The golden Nesaea is a color like no other, makes it unique.
Bihar is really cool with the serrated leaf look.

Java ferns (3 different types) and Anubiases pearling like crazy when I cranked up the CO2. Thought it was the CO2 making its way into the outflow of the reactor at first.

Riccia is my best pearling plants. I like the dwarf kind best. Can't figure out how to post picture on my phone though.

For you guys with pearling plants, how long did it take for these plants to pearl? Does it take a well established tank for plants to do this?
