Are these 2 plants different?
I got these at the LFS today and the first one had the name tag thing but the other one did not and now that I have them home and in the tank they don't look the same to me. :roll: If they are not can you guys tell me what the second one is.
The first one said its a Rosette Sword or Echinodorus Parviflorus :
I'm no plant expert but the second one looks like some kind of Crypt.
Thats what I was thinking maybe Cryptocoryne Parava?
I think the first one is dwarf sword (the one you wanted ;) ) and the second is definately a crypt...
Maybe Crypt Wendtii green?
I agree. Not sure of the crypt species from the photo, but it is a crypt.
Thanks everyone. I am glad at least one of them was the plant I intended to get. LOL They are both really small right now and either way I really like all the cryptocoryne species I have had up until now so one more won't be a bad thing.
I love the rosette sword. I have 5 or 6 in my 120g. And yes, I agree. The 2nd is a crypt. I like these because once they are settled, they really take off. Make sure to pick a place for it that you like though. Crypts don't do well being moved around.
Thanks Lisa yes I know that they don't like to be moved I also have them in my 55 gallon one of my other 10 gallons and my 20 gallon. I love that they come in different colors and styles and are super easy to take care of.
