    They offer Ceratophyllum demersum (hornwort), which is a fast-growing floating plant, and Ceratopteris siliquosa (very similar to Ceratopteris thalictroides, "water sprite"), which is medium to...

    Yeah, definitely a little maintenance/trimming here and there is necessary. It's not like I will be ignoring the tank :ssmile: just won't have as much time to devote to it as in the past.

    Thanks for these. I ended up getting some (more) swords, Crinum, and Aponogeton species. I also believe that "low-maintenance" and "easy/beginner" plants have some overlap but are not necessarily...
  8. Requesting suggestions for low-maintenance plants

    With a busy schedule forecast for next year, I'm on the lookout for "low-maintenance" plant options to fill out a few non-planted spots in my tanks. Fore/mid/background suggestions are all welcome....

    I think it is possible to be "too clean," but it'd be difficult. You'd have to have a really low bioload (like, just shrimp, or a few small fish in a large tank) combined with frequent large water...

    I'm a bit wary of the Sera Daydrops with the unknown ingredients. Personally I would not dose it if I didn't know what was in it. Just my 2 cents. At least with the Seachem line of fertilizers, you...

    I can recommend water sprite (Ceratopteris thalictroides). Believe it or not, I actually could not get duckweed to grow in my tanks. Duckweed is very sensitive to water current, and my hang-on-back...

    I'll defer to Lady Hobbs for a more detailed response, but "will benefit from" is different from "needed".

    As noted, the proper amount and type of lighting is crucial. That is the #1 thing to assess. Besides that, what is the stocking level of your tank? What is your nitrate level? Do you use any liquid...

    My experience with water sprite is that you can plant the floating plantlets, and they will often grow rooted in the substrate. However, it doesn't always work. It may have to do with how much of the...

    Your mystery plant looks like Mayaca fluviatilis to me.

    It's a nice plant; too bad my fish thought it was tasty!

    You can also consider Brazilian pennywort.

    Unfortunately, I don't know of any Amazon-specific plants that grow on rocks or driftwood.

    I think before you start dosing fertilizers, I suggest having more plants in the tank. Otherwise, all the nutrients will just feed the algae.

    In the meantime, limiting how much time the light is...

    Just out of curiosity, are you saying you have a T5 UV bulb? If so, why? I didn't think there was any use for an overhead UV light in a freshwater planted tank.

    Aponogeton madagascariensis has always mystified me. It strikes me as one of those plants that some people have no trouble with, while others can't get to grow at all. Some sources say it doesn't...

    Agreed with Cliff--with that amount of light (assuming it's compact fluorescent), additional fertilizers and carbon sources will likely be needed, or algae will take over.

    I would probably add more plants, or at least a few more fast growing ones, to help out-compete the algae.
