Wink Could Everyone Please Do This =D

Was just wondering if everyone could leave a post saying which plants they use in their tanks, and the ones which grow the fastest and what conditions they need to thrive!! Thanks

vallis,grows very tall the one that i have.
have used hornwort in the past.
small amount of duckweed growing on the surface.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I have hard water, CO2, 3wpg. Cryptocoryne, Ludwiga, and vallisneria grow and multiply the fastest but all are doing well. The tank w/o CO2 is a different story.
