The genus Anubias seems to have many species of low light plants. What are some others?
Java Ferns and Anubias are the only ones that I can think of right now.
All mosses, Cryptocorynes, some Hygrophilas and Rotala.
Thanks guys. 2in10, do you know what type of plant is growing on top of the rock peaks on the front page of Green Leaf aquariums? Also, do you know of other sites that sell aquarium plants?
Looks to be a moss or Riccia which is a crystalwort.
Aquarium plants and Arizona Aquatic Gardens have larger selections. Live Aquaria has some as do other online aquatic stores. Aquabids is a good place to look also.
For a more exotic selection join a plants forum and troll the Swap and Shop forums.
Thanks. After reading up on Riccia, I think I'll stay away from it. What is your opinion on ground shipping for plants? These guys are no more than 2.5 hours south East of me.
That is a good bet if you are in the one day service area.
I'll give it a shot. I purchased a few bundles(?) of java moss. I'm going to try my hand at getting them to grow on my rock work.
Cool good luck
I have another question. I have plant (sword?) that has grown 7 new leaves since I introduced it, but none of them are growing upwards like the existing stems/leaves. They are all remaining small and growing horizontally across the gravel.
Is there a particular reason for that?
