My Sword Sent Out This Runner
29 Gallon - YouTube
i'm excited to see how this grows. i'm not quite sure what to expect. is it gonna sprout leaves? will it flower above the surface? or will it just keep growing a boring stem to my bedroom ceiling?
It will be interesting to watch and see what happens for sure. You keep us posted on it.
Eventually new Swords will grow at the nodes, one at each.
There is a chance it could flower.
They do get quite long don't then? :D One of my swords recently did this about a month ago. The stalk was about 3 feet long o.O
As others have mentioned, this is good.:-D The length of the inflorescence is determined by the plant in response to environmental conditions (light, nutrients) so it can vary from plant to plant and tank to tank. The most activity I have seen on one plant [Echinodorus bleherae which is what this is] was four of these--appearing almost simultaneously--and two of them branching, one even into three sub-stems.
It is unlikely they will flower when the main plant is being grown submersed. I did once have the inflorescence of E. major flower, which is also very rare, but never an E. bleherae. Adventitious plants will form at each of the nodes as someone said. You will have two distinct plants at each node.
Our profile says more.
That is one nice plant and your tank is beautiful. I had one in a 29 that did get one little flower. The substrate was much like yours. At the time, the filter was an air pump driven under gravel model, the lights were two incandescent 60 watt bulbs, and the fertilizer was many fish. Anyway, as has been said, Wow.
small update on the inflorescence, but more of a focus on a constant stream of bubbles coming from this other sword.
29 gallon water change - YouTube
Those bubbles or pearling in this case false pearling as I assume you don't have Co2. Can happen with water changes sometimes. I don't know too much more then that soo you can look on the web for more or see if some ones can answer it.
Nice setup btw!
i have diy CO2.
unfortunately, i just accidentally chopped off the tip of the longest stalk, by allowing the glass lid to slam down on it. only lost about an inch of it, but that will probably cease any further growth on that stalk. too bad, cuz it was still growing, and producing nodes out of the water. well, the next longest stalk is about to break the surface as well, so we'll see how long that one gets. also starting to see a few small leaves emerging on a few of the nodes.
