plants with floating leaves
are there any easy to keep plants with floating leaves(not floating plants)
that dont grow to big im trying to get shade in a certain place, floating plants all end up in the filter gills
dwarf lilly plants are pretty easy to take care of and are readily available...atleast around here. They'll shoot leaves to the surface in a pretty short about of time provided they are given decent water conditions.
ok i've found both dwarf lilly and an even smaller type called a pixie lilly,however both are sold as outdoor plants and at the moment its about 5 degrees how would i aclimatise these plants to a tropical climate??
IME out door Lilly's don't do good in an aquarium. They grow to big, and they like a cooler temp.
You want to use a tropical Nymphaea plant for the best results.
BTW ......Nymphaeas are my fav plant, and I have over 100 bulbs in my tanks. So if you live in the States please shoot me a P.M, and I could send you a few for the price of shipping. :o
unfortunately i live in south east england :( i checked up some of the names and most are tropical types that have been aclimatised i've never seen any indoor types in stores the one i looked at was a pixie lilly which says on the label"good for barrels and other very small water features" so a long way from the common type that overtakes sizeable lakes. ill keep looking for tropical types but i've simply never seen them sold anywere
