C. nuri

I have a very small plant of C. nuri that is struggling. I got it recently and planted it in gravel with some soil about an inch below. The plant went down hill rapidly, but it has recovered somewhat after I transplanted it to a straight soil/peat mixture with no gravel. The recovery is probably due to a better iron supply. I am giving it plenty of CO2. It was being shaded out by an expanding mass of floating plants, and it started declining again, but I just removed the floating plants, and so, we will see how it does. Right now its leaves are only about 1/3 inch long and rather rudimentary looking. I suspect that one really has to push iron to get this species going.

It is said to grow submersed in large streams. Somebody should try it submersed with a good sized pump moving water in the tank.
