Plant Update, and In Need of Some Ideas Of Floating plants
Well I got some Java Moss and Narrow Leaf Java Fern a few weeks ago. They are doing great with lots of new growth! I also have a Pothos Ivy in and it is doing great. I love the look of floating plants, but I have a low light aquarium. Need some ideas please!
Pennywort or Duckweed. I love Pennywort. Also, there are a lot of people that like Water sprite too. I didn't have as good of luck with that. It grew like crazy and looked good for a awhile but then got all brownish and icky looking. The Pennywort is easy and pretty. IMO
Hornwort has a nice feathery look. Since floating plants tend to be close to the lights, you don't need to worry so much about brightness.
Broadleaf watersprite (C. cornuta) is my favorite floating plant. It does well in low light and grows quickly. Even if a plant seems damaged or the stems seem broken, it will grow new plantlets quickly.
Although not considered a floating plant I have good luck with Ludwigia repens ,I just let it float ...it grows super fast and has great color. :-D
my frogbit is absolutely nuts, i love it
Ok thanks, and how do I remove algae from the leaves of the Java Fern?
