Sag graminea

Sag graminea

Sag graminea is a great aquarium and Pond plant. It is similar to Vals. The leaves spiral slightly like Corscrew Val but they are thinner and a lighter yellow green color. These can grow Tall and work well in a 55. In a very shallow tank they can grow up out of the water so clipping them back at the water surface is advised. They do NOT lay over the top of the water like Vals do but instead eventually go stiff and erect and come out of the water completely... They like Medium light or better and a rich substrate is appreciated but not necessary. These are sold as single bare root plants

American Frogbit

American Frogbit

( Limnobium spongia). American frogbit is a much larger version of Amazon frogbit. Large, mature plants will root themselves into the substrate but remain sitting right on the water surface. IF they become densely packed, they will rise above the water, but this rarely happens. It is a much larger plant than Amazon frogbit as well. Most of the plants I have on hand now run about 8-10 inches though only the leaf upper surface remains above the water. These propagate readily by sending off shoots. They also have a small bloom similar to snowflake but it is not astounding. The plant itself is the interest and adds a nice touch to any pond. And, YES, small to medium frogs will hang out on top of a leaf! These can also be grown right at waters edge in the mud where they become a nice erect rosette of heart shaped waxy leaves and spread readily. These are sold as single bare root plants.

Crinum thaianum

Crinum thaianum

( Crinum thaianum ) The Water onion plant, as it is sometimes called, is an easy bulb plant that grows in most conditions. It grows roots fairly quickly, but has a long acclimation period before it starts growing new leaves (usually a couple weeks). The long flattish leaves are tough but snap easily. Each leaf can grow to over a YARD long. Hence, it has a minimum tank size: 20 inch tall tank or more.It puts a few unique demands during planting: Peel off all dead leaves and peel off the outer layer of the bulb. Trim off most or all of the roots. Then, bury the very bottom tip of it. If the whole bulb or even half is buried, the bulb rots! After it is growing well, you can remove old and broken leaves, which encourages new ones. Propagation is more difficult and slow than most plants. It needs a deep substrate of 2-3 inches. It does well with no CO2. HERBIVORE SAFE!! More herbivore safe than ANY other plant!! Low light is fine but ti would appreciate a nutritious substrate or root tabs . These are larger bulbs and growing well.
