I love them. Johnny, you should try some Corkscrew Vals instead. I think they add character and look less plain. The straight Vals are just a little too boring for me.

I really love the Mix; I got 2 diff Vals in there and that looks nice - I like it when its 'less organized' and a lil more natural like this.

Next on my Agenda are gonna be my Swords now I just set there last night watching my fish and whoopdy dooo there's several daughter plants on both Swords I hadn't even seen before (mind you I already took like 5-6 lil one's off) and I always was the bugger saying Swords grow fairly slow - Yea right

LOL. My swords from SA came with several daughter plants each (YES!) but they haven't grown roots yet to be able to snip them and replant them.

Give the plantlets a good start before removing them from the runner/spike. The roots should be 3+ inches long and plentiful, and the leaves should be 2-3 inches or more and also several. If removed too soon the plant may or may not survive.

I have about 30 or more daughter Echinodorus bleherae plants, all the parent plants sent out 2 or 3 multi-branched spikes in December/January. It takes a couple months for the daughter plants to develop sufficiently large enough to be removed. It is sometimes helpful to have the spike lower down in the aquarium (they grow to the surface of course) so the plants develop further down in the water column. The reason for this is to avoid algae which tends to appear faster and be more excessive on the plantlets nearer the surface, as opposed to further down from the light and CO2.

Thanks Byron. I've only cut 1 daughter plant so far. That was in my 5g. It looked exactly like you described. Long roots and a few leaves. I cut it and buried it back in the gravel and it is thriving. I don't think I'll be able to cut any in the 55g for a month or so. Thanks for the heads up!
