Onion, lily & apogenton (dry)
I found that my local Petco is selling a pack of bulbs and rhizomes for the abovementioned plants. Has anybody found packaged bulbs / rhizomes useful? Or is it better to buy live plants instead? are these plants hardy? Do they have a low or high light requirement?
Also, I am just getting my feet wet at seeting up a planted tank. I've found java fern and Anubias nana. can anyone suggest other low-light hardy plants I can start with?
I wouldn't count on them all sprouting.... If they're cheap enough, try it, but I can almost guarantee most won't sprout.
I have never myself tried bulbs dry, but I have heard from some other members that as redchigh mentioned they frequently do not sprout.
To your second question about other plants, can you tell us about your light? Please be specific. And the tank size. From this information we should be able to suggest other plants.
Actually, I'm just setting up 10 gallon aquarium for fry that my platys and danios have. I'm not having any artificail light at the moment....I've kept it by a west facing window. I've put in a java fern and a Anubias nana.
I have done this and it did work but only the onion and the lily lived.
Bulbs are good options, but buy them wet and make sure they have sprouts.
Most of the mosses do well in low-light..Any of the small echinodorus species are great... bleheri var compacta, klienar prinz, maybe echinodorus parviflorus (rosette sword)..
Ludwigea repens is onf of my favorites, and crypt wendtii will add some nice color. let me know if you want more.
