OK, if we have 5 point plants nailed down, how much more difficult does a plant have to be to be worth 10 points. Fortunately, we don't have to be too exact having a 5 point spread makes it OK, if we have 5 point plants nailed down, we can talk about what makes a plant worth 5 points. Fortunately, we don't have to be too exact having a 5 point spread makes it a bit easier to categorize plants. But, just how much more difficult do plants need to be to be worth 10 points? Ideally we should be able to compare a plant to the 4 traits I gave for the 5 point plants and if it is more difficult for a trait then it is worth more points. Letís take Java moss as an example:
1. grows in a wide range of water conditions.
2. Grows in low light.
3. Does not require any special fertilizer or CO2 supplementation.
4. But it does not grow nearly as fast as water sprite in a lower light tank.
So is Java moss worth 10 points?
I have found that duckweed (Lemna minor) grows very slowly if it is in water with zero hardness, and low nutrient levels, even if it is given good light. Should duck weed be worth 10 points? I donít think so, but maybe this is enough to make it worth the 5 points that is has been assigned
So what do yíall think is needed to make a plant worth 10 points?
