I grow some in my 10 gallon tank with 25 watts.

-java moss-low to medim light, slow grower
-moneywort-low to high lighting, slow in dim light
-banana plant, fast growing but requre medium to high lighting, dont bury the "bananas" in the gravel
-red ludwigia, hight ligthing, fast grow, iron rich gravel
-anubias nana, undemanding, very slow grow, low light
-pennywart, high lighting, grows way to fast, not much to grow this plant
-creeping charlie, i have no clue, the guy at the aquarium place just gave it to me for free. i cant get much info on google about this plant either. grows at a medium rate thus far, but may be due to being under the banana plant leaves, appears to be a stalk plant

hope this helps :)

Hit me up Baby

all do well but grow slowly due to the low light conditions

I have Java Fern, Anubias nana, Anachris, and Java Moss in my tank. The java fern grows pretty quick but you don't really notice it since it more so just thickens up, at least in my tank. Other than the the Anachris I have has done really well the largest stalk grew at least 5-6 inches in a week to the point it was almost to the top of my 20gallon. I took about 5 inches off the top of it and replanted, and now that one is continuing to grow just as well. The anubias grows really slow. Gotten about 2 new leaves in about a month or two. Java fern, I don't really notice it growing but the roots have grown for sure! They haven't attached to anything in the last couple months though and kinda just float around in the water whilst being tied down to a rock. :O

My two main tanks have basically the same stats, only difference is 2wpg vs 2.75 wpg. The 20gal is 14" deep, while the 55gal is 18" deep. All the plants have grow well in both tank before.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

I've got four different kinds, each listed below.
The chameleon plants (h. cordata) definitely grow the fastest but also the loaches eat the leaves. None of the other fish eat them, though.
And they're easy to spread. "Propagation by division." Very user friendly, just snip, plant, watch grow.

I don't have a lot of light at all. It's a regular Perfecto 29/20L hood florescent. I couldn't find any where how many watts the bulb is. So for safety's sake, I consider it "low light."
But I do use two Flourish products; Excel and tabs. I'm undecided if they're actually helping.

3 Platies, 1 molly mut, 1 Siamese algae eater, 2 Neolamprologus Facicula cichlids
