What is the name of this plant? I've seen these plants in an aquarium before (pg. 13 in Plants For Your Aquarium by Gula Wolfgang). But I was wondering whether they can be grown submersed?


What is the name of this plant? I'm hoping it's the emersed form of Marsilea Very Happy because there is a ton of them behind my house!

the last one is a 3 leaf clover! lol..I have tons of em too! I live by the beach and there are some plnts who get submerged during high tides and I'm wondering if they are good submerged. I think they are those things called iceplants(common throughout the san diego dessert/beach area.

First two are probably Houttuynia cordata, IME very difficult to grow underwater. New leaves looked great, but older ones lower down on the stem would invariably rot away. That was under 3W/gal of light and heavy fertilization. Amano seems to be able to deliver, though, that jerk... Wink

LOL, Amano IS a jerk! He thinks he's so high and mighty with his flawless tanks! Tula, do you know where I can look up the Amano's tank with Houttuynia cordata? Maybe it'll give me enough inspiration to actually try it. I DO have a lot of this plant in my backyard, so if one dies, I can always try again!

Nature Aquarium World Book 1, page 139, in one of my all-time favorite Amano tanks.
