While on Tom Barr's Plantfest 2, I collected a number of plants from a shallow region with flowing water, and I have them established in a 20 gallon aquarium. One is a narrow-leaved Sagittaria that has leaves that come up in a wide spiral, unlike any other Sagittaria I have seen. Another is a kind of Vallisneria, that, so far, seems to have no tendency to produce long leaves. In the shallow regions of the river these Vals had very short leaves, and I expected that in the still water of the aquarium, I would get the usual two or three feet long leaves. However, so far, the plants are retaining their dwarf appearance. More time is needed to see just how long the leaves it produces can be. The leaves are an olive brown in good light. Another is a huge Myriophyllum that has two inch long, light green leaves. Another is a brownish Najas which is quite different from my green variety of Najas. Finally, there is a Cyperus species growing totally submersed in the river. In the aquarium, it is the slowest growing of all my finds, but it looks healthy. It looks like Cyperus helferi, but I would need to grow it side by side with C. helferi to see which one was best suited for the aquarium.
