Draping plant

Is there any plants I could put in my tank that will drape over stuff. I can't seem to find any and think it would make a nice addition to my tank.

Mosses are the only ones I can think of.

What kind? Java moss doesn't give me the affect I'm looking for. Would willow moss be less floaty?

Not really. I see what you mean now by drappy.

Have to think on this one. You could use a stem plant and plant it on one side of whatever and then plant the top on the other side. This would hopefully get it to grow in over the object. Bacopa, Cabomba, Ludwigia, Alternethera or some other stem plant might work to do this with.

Try taking a look at baby tears. Its a small leaved stemmed plant.

Pellia can be kind of drapey. There are some mosses related to Java moss that tend to grow more down than up too. I believe one of them is called falling moss. Taiwan and Christmas moss get bushier than javamoss, but I am not sure to what extent they'll drape.

While it would be against the rules to link you to a planted tank forum, finding one is going to be your best bet for finding folks who have lots of plat experience who can point you toward the less available plants that might serve your purposes.

Also, you can brows the Tropica website for ideas.

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
