Wish I could find the article.
Do recall it was while searching planted tank forums and article was translated from german to english. As mentioned,, It was suggested that the aquarium would have to be near choked with this particular plant to present the scenario described.
I recall I was searching for some fast growing plants that would do well in my water (moderatley hard) ,, and that also do well with moderate light. Things kinda took off from there ,as so often they do while I am researching
I shall note the place should I once again find it.
