Lace Plant...

Sometime back a member here posted a picture of some kind of lace plant in there tank here that I really, really like but I can not remember the name of it. Anyone know what it could be so I can order it?

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

looked for it on ebay,i thought of that too.

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.

That is a beautiful plant, but it is certainl not easy to cultivate. I can't remember who the member was, though I remember the thread, and his plant was doing very well at the time, and I believe he was fairly high-tech. It is a species of Aponogeton, A. madagascariensis to be exact, and there are likely three varities. I haven't added it to the profiles because few manage to keep it alive and they are expensive (at least where I am). Kasselmann writes that though a popular plant because of the leaves, a prolonged and satisfactory culture in the aquarium is very rarely achieved.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Lionhead is the member that has it in their tank. I think they have high lights and runs C02 sometimes. (Could be wrong but pretty sure that's the case)
