Default Re: Lego's Emersed Growth Experiments

Thanks! I've grown a number of these emersed before, I just never really got serious about it till now. Everything's acclimated well to emersed life, with the exception of one or two. Here's the full list as it stands now:

-Aciotis sp.
-Acmella americana
-Alternanthera reineckii "Rosaefolia"
-Cardamine lyrata
-Eleocharis "Belem"
-Eriocaulaceae "Type II"
-Gratiola aurea
-Gratiola brevifolia
-Hemianthus micranthemoides
-Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides
-Hygrophila "Araguaia"
-Hygrophila corymbosa "Angustifolia"
-Hyptis lorentziana
-Limnophila "Guinea Broad Leaf"
-Limnophila repens "Mini"
-Limnophila "Wavy"
-Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Cuba"
-Ludwigia peploides
-Ludwigia senegalensis
-Ludwigia xlacustris
-Murdannia sp. "Red"
-Pogostemon erectum
-Polygonum praetermissum "Ruby"
-Polygonum "Kawaegoneum"
-Polygonum "Sao Paulo"
-Rotala hippuris
-Rotala indica
-Rotala "Gai Lai"
-Rotala macrandra "Butterfly"
-Rotala macrandra "Green"
-Rotala macrandra "Japan Red"
-Sphaerocaryum malaccense
-Staurogyne repens
-Staurogyne "Porto Velho"
-Syngonanthus "Belem"
-Syngonanthus "Manaus"
-Tonina fluviatilis "Lotus Blossom"

I have the 20 long as I posted above, plus I set up a 105 liter rubbermaid tub to hold the excess. I have another big tub (120 liters, I think) I'd love to set up for this as well, but I have no room and no extra lighting for any more at the moment.

That would really, really be appreciated because emersed plants can look radically different, and that can make choosing plants for wabi-kusa a chore. I've had a rough time with it.

Haha, it's really not much to look at as a whole, plus it's really hard to get a good picture of everything without a nice wide-angle lens. If there's a specific plant you'd like to see, I'd be more than happy to post a couple pics, but shots of the entire setups from the inside of the tank are pretty hard to get.

Ludwigia peploides? That thing can be a beast! Are you sure you're ready?

Just as a note, I discovered that the current and correct species name for the Acmella is A. repens. Same plant, but a pretty confusing taxonomic history.

Haha, yeah I'm planning on giving the Ludwigia lots of room once I get it outside. I have a 50g pond I'm setting up this spring and it'll probably be given free reign in there.

A. oppositifolia var. repens? I thought that might have been it, but I wasn't sure. After I got the plant, I was surprised to find out it's in the Asteraceae family, same as the daisies and sunflowers.

It was under that name for a while. Basically, the specimen designated as the type for A. oppositifolia turned out to be something else, if I remember correctly. I can get you the citation if you like.

Ah, ok. I will never understand taxonomy
