My guess would be an inflorescence. Definitely would love to see the flowers too.
I googled this and didn't find an explanation regarding what you're saying. What's an inflorescence? What is it supposed to do?
Ok, I searched again and found it. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it flowers!
Sorry hanging out with the techies on a planted tank site too much.
No problem. Glad you could get back at all. So, does it sound like this will flower or just keep growing "lily pads"? Geez, that would be so awesome if it would flower!
Side note: where can I go to read about how to incorporate red plants into an aquascape?
lol, now im singing that song in my head!
If it is growing lily pads then no flowers as it is not an inflorescence. It would look similar to all flowering plants with its bloom stalk.
Red plants should be placed in front of green plants to make their colors pop. You want to make sure your water is a little harder and you dose a little more iron and micronutrients to keep the colors and growth better. You also generally need to use a medium to high light level.
Ok, I'll just let it grow for a while out of curiosity.
With lights off all night the ph is 7.6 which appears to be on the cusp of what red plants need. Am I correct about this?
pH isn't as much of an issue as is the correct hardness levels. Shoot for a GH of 5 to 8.
