I have two of these plants and I really like them, but one of them only has leaves at the top....but they both seem to be growing well.

This plant is really pretty but if you aren't a plant expert, you might kill it within the week like I did. I wouldn't consider it hardy.

    I love this plant it's probably my favorite and I got it quite by accident as a hitchhiker with some other plants I purchased. I did find it hardy but It seemed to do better with brighter light. It went crazy in my 10 gallon where the light penetrated better. It did okay in my 55 but grew much slower. I suspect with a lighting upgrade its growth would improve but it is healthy just slow growing.

Cabomba is a very nice plant i'm lucky enough to get tons of it here in louisiana at a local pond. i have it mixed in with a low growing water grass that i also get from the pond plus a few other assorted aquatic plants from other ponds in the area. my fish love it. i have a 175 gallon tank full of it my fish breed in it quite nicely. it gets very tall and very lush. its a good starter plant just get a proper grow light bulb and it will do fine. pleco's (alagea eaters) like chewing on it. you can break a long stem into several parts and each one will eventually grow as a seperate plant. can you really eat it?? thats news to me! lol

    My cabomba stop growing. All the leaves are falling apart. It started when I cut the stems to replant it. I feel guilty for doing this. Can you please advice me on what to do, to make my cabomba grow again? Thanks.

This plant is magnificent. I put it in my 29g and it grew THREE INCHES overnight! I love the way it seems to change shape every day. Sometimes it grows thick collections of branches at the top that look like palm trees. Once it grows too big, you just snip it in the middle, attach a plant weight, and throw it somewhere else. Putting a bunch together makes a lovely bush effect.

"Anacharis" (Egeria densa) did NOT originate in North America. It is an exotic invasive and should NEVER be released or propagated outdoors. Egeria spp. are also easily confused with the similar-looking Hydrilla verticillatum, another invasive, which after released, has caused damage in the *hundreds of millions of dollars,* not to mention the difficult-to-quantify ecological implications. All "anacharis" plants should be properly disposed of (headed for water treatment plant or thoroughly dried before sending to a landfill). Elodea canadensis, another similar plant *is* native to North America, but identities are often too difficult to risk

This plant is good for any enviroment and grows fast under a good light. I use pro-glo from Hagen for lighting and can watch it grow. This plant can grow an inch a day. Only have had this plant for about two weeks but all my mollies love this plant and will peck at it and its flowers.

Hornwort is a very attractive plant, which groups nicely. It grows readily, even under mildly unstable conditions (Dont use that as an excuse to abuse it). My only warning is dont place this in smaller tanks, because the spine-like leaves constantly fall off of the bottom stems, and grow on the top. The leaves float so are easily removed, but can clump up and slowly rot.

Im not exactly good with plants yet but i have had no problem raising this plant. They are not at all picky and will grow very fast in most conditions, and can easily grow 2, 3, or 4 times the length of your tank

Beautiful plant, especially when there white flowers appear. I keep mine for food. The fish love to eat them. They become very long also.

you need to add information about the freshwater plants and not just have pictures and descriptions of freshwater plants!!!


Please do it because it will get a lot more people to look on your website and it will be a great reference!



Thanks!
