brainstorm.... low small light plant
 
Looking for a low light plant to plant a shaded area behind ny driftwood. This is for a one gallon tank, so I'm looking for a smaller plant.....blyxa to give it a fake val look? i dunno, need ideas :P

oh and sorry about the bad grammar in the title. it was meant to read "small low light plant". oops

to give an idea of the space...
there is currently a stargrass surviving in the crevice. but I ould like something that is a little taller in there...so that it will peer out from behind the driftwood.

it's around a 1 in gap... heater's in the way of the pic...

edit: might help if I also had a pic of the tank huh? here it is. it may not look like it, but there's room in the back...

You said small...

And you can always buy one in the size you want.

Cryptocoryne parva (2-4")

The cube is 8in high, so maybe 6-7in will be a nicer size. i have some petchii, not as fine as parva unfortunately :/
think hairgrass will work? I've had them in med light before. they don't grow in low light for me.

I think a nice echinodorus var vesuvious? Or crypt wendtii? or crinum calastratum?

ao 02-03-2013 08:06 AM

hee hee curly plants!
I had some e vesuvious before :( but it vanished T_T

how big have you ha your wendtiis grow? I've seen som 12in ones @____@ the brown one seems to stay small though.

I'm leaning towards hair grass or similar...
