The plants in my tank – December 2015 

  • Cabomba caroliniana
  • Myriophyllum mattogrossense
  • Bucephalandra
  • Egeria densa
  • Limnophila hippuridoides
  • Didiplis diandra
  • Pogostemon erectus
  • Rotala rotundifolia
  • Hydrocotyle cf. tripartita

The Didiplis diandra is kinda hard, it’s easily covered in algae and grows not very fast. But also not very slow. I leave it in the foreground for now. The  Limnophila hippuridoides could be more reddish by now.. hmm.. maybe I need to stop cutting it and just leave it alone for a while hahaha

All my Buces look horrible :( They went through algae treatment for weeks.. I hope they’ll come back to their old beauties. Might take a year or so. 

The rotala rotundifolia grows so fast, I need to sell some stems now lol Same goes for the Myriophyllum mattogrossense and the Cabomba caroliniana. The Pogostemon erectus is the green plant behind the bridge. It came as in-vitro plant in a small cup, took some days until it started growing but now it looks fine. Still need 10 cm to go though ;) 



Today I discovered a group of baby pond snails in the water garden! I counted at least four. I never intended to put animals in the water garden, and still don’t, but I’m not going to kick the pond snails out. I’ve always thought they’re cute. 😍

Please ignore the state of the garden. I just did a water change and we’re still in our melt phase. Everyone’s putting out roots though so I’m very happy!
