    Well...really fast but I have really good lighting :) aaaaand...water conditions...I have well water so its really hard but very acidic. Also my temp runs between 76-81F (depending on which tank not in a single tank) and the plants do fine! They will grow slowly if your lighting is not good enough. I would invest in fluorescent bulbs (2 WPG or you're gonna get alage problems) and they need to be in the 6700-10000K range.

    How fast have your wendtii been growing? And what are your water conditions?

    Mine are such babies and I need full-grown! D;

    I have decided. Get the 4 pack and two italian vals ;3 I will get the wendtii today and the val on friday!! I will be like $3 over budget, but for gorgeous plants it is WORTH IT.

    I don't love my plants, I love shopping and aquascaping! Hehe.... C:

    Flowers! I'm jealous!! My cabomba is going to flower...maybe (it might not flower, I'm not sure if it does but it looks like it!)... :) I swear, I love my plants* almost* as much as my fish, teehee! Vallisneria should do well in lower light, too. That's a good choice and its cheap!

    The worker said she used this water supplement and it is on sale for$ 5. The plant is gorgeous, has tiny white flowers, and is HUGE.

    I would bet money that if it smells strongly like eucalyptus (it just smelled like Vicks Vapor Rub to me) that it IS bacopa! I love my bacopa...its a lovely fast growing plant, which needs moderate to high light. I have not supplemented mine with CO2 or Fertilizers (yet) and its grown quite a bit! Chances are if its doing well at your LPS, it'll do well in your tank, provided you give it enough light! I also love that it is scented...a little water herb! :))

    I think it is bacopa! Lemon bacopa maybe. The worker said it smelled of eukalyptis to her, but eukalyptis has that lemony-y tart smell to it.

    Do you know much about bacopa?
