THANK YOU Aokashi for the plants.

I had to make a thread to thank Aokashi for being so kind as to send me plants all the way to Oregon. Super nice of them to go out of there way to send a package and ask for no money.I would like to return the favor to this person but they say that they are full up on plants so I say I will pass the buck and if some one here want some plants for free drop me a line so I can pass the good will and generosity.If you ever get a sweet tooth Aokashi let me know and I will ship you some of my home made candies.Now for some pics of a professional plant exporter.

homg! there's a thread with my name on it!!!

you already repaid me, so I dont know what you're talking about ;)

I HOPE THEY DO WELL FOR YOU! keep us updated on their progress!!!
Most of them are highlight plants :) I'm going to list the full names here so you wont go crazy trying to decipher my writing XD

Staurogyne 'low gro'
Limnophila vietnam
Marsilea quadrifolia
Persicaria Kawagoeanum
runnunculus innundatus
Hydrocotyle tripartita
Susswassertang
Eleocharis belem
Dwarf baby tears

Most of these have been grown "emersed" ie. without water. Some such as the marsilea will look dramatically different once they start throwing out under water leaves (they will lose the old leaves if the old leaves can't reach the surface.

I doooo need to give you instructions on converting these guys to submersed growth... so bear with me >.<


Most of these plants are med-high light and will do great in a CO2 tank. They also (with the except of persicaria and runnunculus) have small leaves and are great for nano scapes. Due to my very small tanks, I tend to collect plants on the smaller side...

Stem plants:
Float until you see new growth! The plant needs to transition and tends to do better at the water surface where conditions are most similar to it's original environment :)
for reference sake, it's like this ( but probably not as dramatic )

You will need proper day light lighting and preferably a bunch of pond Snails help the process immensely by cleaning up and providing nutrients. My plants transition great in my black worm culture! (don't ask, lol...)

When you have a good amount of leaves you can plant one stem at a time. perhaps a few days apart? to see how they take the transition to deeper waters. then, when you have a significant amount of new growth you lop the top submersed part off (it probably lost all its old leaves anyway) and replant the tops :)

Marsilea
This one is a med light plant. Some claim it's lowlight... in which it can certainly survive... but to have it grow and spread, it would need something better than low light. it IS a carpeting plant! with each individual leaf standing at less than 1in tall! Simply plant this fellow and it will lose the old leaves and give birth to some new... tiny leaves. This is one of my favorite transitions.

Eleocharis belem
Float or plant... it does better planted and will grow shorter... 3in max. i'm growing mine on a piece of drift wood with really good light. i

Susswassertang
Uh i dunno... stick it in a jar or something XD you probably already know what this blob is, but in case you don't, google will give you some good ideas on what this is supposed to look like.

Runnunculus innundatus
I'm surprised this one is still alive. It had been sitting in a ziploc bag for a good week before I sent it to you...
It's a plant I've been searching for for some time now. I was however, dissappointed that it was larger than I thought it would be. It does greatttt in a CO2 tank. I recommend floating it now to allow for proper recovery :)

Hydrocotyle tripartita
also called H. Japan
use it for a really fast carpet in a Co2 tank. in low tech, mediumish light set up, it works wonderfully as a floater :)

HC/ dwarf baby tears
This is one plant whose latin name i can neither remember nor spell...
I hope you find a use for it. I really had too much...
