Anything about new plants should go in this stickey. Art had a similar sticky up, but I could find no way to to move your posts to his stickey, so I created one of my own and removed his. His statement is below. If we get lots of talk about new plants in this stickey, maybe we can have a forum on new plants.

It seems that almost every week new aquarium plants are becoming availble. Lets get information on all these new plants into one location.

Post information on new plants here. Very Happy

New plants in the hobby in the Netherlands/Belgium:

Bucephalandra Motleyana (how anyone will be able to pronounce this one, is beyond me :? ):



New sort of Monoselenium (cauliflower-like):



A very narrow leaved form of Microsorum pteropus (picture is a bit dark):



Other new plants here are the Ludwigia spec 'Cuba', Proserpinaca palustris, Monoselenium tenerum, Tonina fluviatilis. But I think these are already known here on the boards.

Pictures that were shown here are now on p. 3

The Microsorum v. 'narrow leaf' looks striking, and very grass-like. I wonder why it looks different from the narrow leaf version I've usually seen, yours looks more narrower. Maybe it M. v. 'narrower leaf'? :wink:

Bucephalandra looks interesting. Apparently it is an Aroid! Do you have any information on how it grows, propatates, etc. It looks like quite a small plant.

Rotala sp. "Rio"
Very tiny, seems like a great stem plant for nano tanks. Seems like it gets a slight red sheen on the top of the leaves.
Carlos will need to help me out with more information on this plant,

It seems like Rotala sp "Rio" is missing part of its name. I could be wrong but it is most likely "Rio something" Looks like a nifty little plant though :)

There was a large article in one of the magazine 'Aquarium' from the NBAT (in Dutch though). Someone from the NBAT took the plant with him from a trip to South-East Azia. It has to be tied to stones, and I don't think the plant stays as small as on the picture. That are the only things I remember. I have the article on my computer, but I am not considering translating it. I can send you the Dutch text if you want. PM me if you want to get it.

I believe Murdannia sp. is fairly easy to grow and can be grown submersed or emersed. I think it is going to be added to the plantfinder eventually. It comes from Eastern Brazil and belongs in the family Commelinaceae. There is a species of Murdannia that is from tropical America with green leaves (M. nudiflora) and it has pretty little blue flowers and the same leave curling. Cool species to grow!

That is another great resource for identifying plants, and it is great that Tim put it together. I believe what is listed on a few plants for the husbandry requirments are not ideal. The best resource on plants new to the hobby is Rayon Vert Aqua...amazing that a fishstore can do so much.

I think they are a pretty big operation with greenhouses. I agree; they are the most active plant collectors in the world, very likely. They have a crypt collection to die for, and you could die when you see some of the prices! It is too bad that they don't ship to the U.S.
