That would make sense. Haven't you heard? We make yogurt, not sense.

Is that jungle val on the far right?
That is Vallisneria spirilis on the right. In the tanks is V. spirilis, Dwarf baby tears, Anubais nana, Java Moss, and Aponogeton longiplumulosus. The aponogeton flowered for the first time a few weeks ago but I did not get a picture.

People always say they have trouble with baby tears but mine have always grown very well. I just give them good light (3wpg) and trim them regularly so they grow out and not up.

Where did you get your Aponogeton longiplumulosus?
I'm looking for plant that can grow tall enough to reach the surface and shade plants underneath it.
That plant looks perfect.

I got the Aponogeton longiplumulosus from Sweet Aquatics about a year ago. I don't know if I would go there again because, although they have very nice plants for a very good price, their communication was severely lacking and it took a long time to get my plants. I believe aquariumplants.com has them though. They are a very easy bulb plant and they grow to 20+ inches.

edit: it looks like sweet aquatics went out of business.
