"Behind the Scene" pictures of many of the entries in the contest, including those of Wayne Sham: creator of a few of the entries in the competition. One of his aquascapes has graced the cover of AquaJournal. :D Carlos really needs to learn Taiwanese (is this what the people of Taiwan speak? :oops:) and interview some of these international superstars for future editions of "Aquascaper of the Month".

Too bad the sense of using Latin names is still not so common in Asia, particularly Taiwan. I could read Chinese, but the names of those plants are still only common names in.....Chinese. There are lots of plants we should already know, but then there are also ones we don't see here.

Maybe if enough people request then I could try my best to research on some of the plants we don't know here in the States. That Taiwan photo contest appeared to have their own forum as well. However, you could only go in if you are registered, unlike it here where anyone can view the posts. I bookmarked the site so tonight I will contact the forum people there.

BTW, nice seeing all the friends here who are also from Aquabotanic!

Which plants would you like identified? Most of them have been identified by genus name with the name of the location of where it was originally collected.

Examples:
Ludwigia sp Pantanal
Rotala sp Goias
Rotala sp Araguaia
Tonina sp Belem

etc.

Most of them are from Brazil,

Yo, Carlos, good to see you here. I haven't finished looking at all the photos but I am almost positive there are some that I don't know. Plus, aren't all the descriptions in Chinese? That is why I posted my idea, in case enough people would like to know then I can do some research/translation.

Hi Paul! Welcome to APC! :)

Most of these new plants were originally collected by a Japanese company called Rayon Vert. I'm just offering to help out, since I did a lot of research on these recently discovered (for aquarium use) aquaplants when I was an avid plant collector. Their needs are not too different from a lot of stem plants we have here.
