Hi,

I don't think there's any special requirements that are different than for any other aquatic being grown emersed. You may need to shade them a little as full sun may be too much. As for temp, don't go over 90F (don't know off hand what that is in C). Keep the humidity high.

Good luck.

Hi,

You will love Eustralis Stellata in emersed form with its nice purplish flowers. Ludwigia Arcuata looks totally different when emersed. Have fun with both species.

As for requirements, shading but allow access to partial sun. Soil must be damp and those 2 are quite hardy when emersed.

Have fun.

Cheers
Vincent
