The Basics
Ben Belton from the Dallas/Fort Worth Aquatic Plant Club wrote this very easy to read and very comprehensive article about the basics of keeping aquatic plants. All the information is available online but the article summarizes it and presents it in a very clear fashion. In addition the layout of the web-pages is very, very nice:

Read the article here.

Very good article! I bookmarked it and will be pointing others to it in the future.

It is a fairly helpful article but I think there ought to be an explanation of non CO2 tanks.

Your referral to Ben Bolton's writings continues to have a very positive effect. As a new member of APC I just found your post and read his article. Very informative. Thank you for your assistance.

Re: The Basics
you know, that was really interesting. I was prepared to jump on the "what about non-CO2 tanks" thing before even reading it... but now, having read it, I think I have killed so many plants, because I have taken the wrong approach... I'm going to solicit some other opinions about this, but I want to thank you for changing my perspective on how I was looking at my constant planting problems.
