    Think hair grass has a lot to do with substrate and co2 from what I have read.
    Another option would be dwarf Chain sword. That grows well just takes some time to plant. Want to spread it out in a grid to get a decent carpet type look

    Duh...forgot about the thread title staurogene.
    Maybe I forgot about the other types, since I thought they'd be too hard. My friend keeps wanting me too try mermaid weed. I didn't know it was south american maybe now?

    I had Myriophyllum orange (if I remebered right....at one time, it caught all the BBA in my 90g, but I'd like to try it again in a tank without BBA, it was a really weird orange colour. Didn't know it was from South America either. Thanks for your list.

    P.helferi in my experience is not demanding. No doubt co2 is a bonus. But have grown both ways. Ive actually done better with it in lower par. I have typically high Gh/kh but it seems to love macro/micro.

    Agreed. I think everybody warned me about that toward the beginning of my Orinoco thread? Maybe it was a different thread. But anyway, Noooooo, I just had to try it for myself. Blame it on my Scottish ancestry. :) I've done dwarf chain sword, and it grows like crazy, but it's a bit tall and gets pretty out of control...not the look I'm going for here.

    Technically from the America's
    It's a new one I've gotten recently and its been doing well in my apisto tank....
    Oooooooo. I love how these "which plant/fish should I choose" threads always turn into fireworks displays. That's a beauty!

    Maybe that's my issue then with helferi, not enough minerals in my water and I don't use ferts at the moment until I figure out TDS.

    Low PAR you say....what is low lighting in your opinion?

    I've noticed this too, what might do well in one tank might not do well in another. I let whatever grow that likes to in my tanks, although it would be nice to try other species of plants again. I also can't get reneiki to grow, too much shade I think, but that's a beautiful plant I wish I could grow in my 120g SA tank.

    Edit: And we forgot about good old combamba

    You know ....there various charts around stating par levels. I believe there low and high. I dont like alot of middle terms. I think if your pars in the 30s you can grow helferi. I think there are several so called high light plants that will grow in that kind of par. I think there are way to many factors to just state this is a low light or this is a high light plant.

    Here is a pic. About 35 par. Lots of macros/micros and 15-30 ppm. Almost 6 months growth. Was two plants originally. No trimming.

    So what would 50 par do ....idk
