Thats where I have the rotala nanjenshan that is not growing very well although I have been thinking of replacing it and trying my luck with something else. I want a large bush thats going to fill in all that space behind the rocks in that corner. Any suggestions other than the two that have been pointed out? Thanks
Absolutly...I just thought some red/pink might appeal to you as those get the red/pink. Thr Macrandra/red, the other gets pink at the top as it gets to the surface of the water.
But for using ferts up/w one plant that would get large/bushy, especially
using Potassium...except for floating plants you almost cant get better than Wisteria as it quickly shows fert deficiencies. One member said in
a thread he started, that in his well growing tank, he has one Wisteria plant that he needs to trim every week to keep it from growing out
over the top of the water and that about every month he cuts off the top, pulls up the old plant and puts the top back in it's place to start over. Sounded to be just a bit of an exaggeration to me but it grew very fast in my tank at first, but at that time I had bad sub that had way too much iron in it that wrecked my tank till I changed it. That plant died as a result of that sub. But grew like three inches in the first week under 2 T5 bulbs till the iron killed it...and Excel only at normal doses.
P.S. Those Rotala you have, if I'm looking at the right ones(the small plants sticking up behind that rock)which I see between
the rochs on the left...they are too small. When you try to start plants(stemmed) and use ones that small/short, they take quite
some time to gather enough light to get growing well. Frequently my plants have three growing layers on them. The first/bottom is from where they came from, the second from the shop where I got them and the third from my tank...looks awkward to say the least but I try to get them as large as I can cause getting them small was my first aproach so most of the growth would be from my tank but they start so slowly that way I now get the largest and cut out the entire old plant after new stems get established and those are grown entirely in my tank. Much more uniformed.
