| | submersed to emersed transformation ?
Hi all, I'm interested to learn if there is specific procedure to do this for certain plants. I've done emersing for crypts, anubias, and microsorium where I just got the leaf above water right away. Seems bunch of tough plants to acclimatize. I've put them all in the pond filtration where its shadowed by the semi-transparent fiber canopy, highly humid, and got lots of water current.
But this time I wanna do glosso and echinodorus quadricostatus. Can I use the same procedure, getting them air breathing right away ? I'm afraid the delicate leaf will dry up. Do emersed glosso need direct sunlight or can it grow in that pond filter area ?
BTW, can valisneria be grown emersed ?
thanks in advance
