Hi all,
Does anyone know of any dark green stem plants with finer/smaller leaves?
I'll be honest I can't think of one.

Leaves are dark green because they contain an lot of chlorophyll, which usually occurs in plants with <"slow growth, adapted to shady conditions">.

If it didn't have to be stem plant there are some other options, probably the plants that are the most reliable dark green are <"Cryptocoryne x willisii">, Anubias barteri and particularly <"Bolbitis heudelotii">.

cheers Darrel

If slow growth = darker green, then try Hygrophila pinnatifida which is low growing stem with darker spectrum.

In my tank, the foliage green from dark to bright are Bolbitis, Buce Mini Red and Browny, Anubias, Java fern, Amazon Sword and Hygro polysperma.
