fantastic. have you ever tried to creat a landscape with these plants as like you would do with an aqua scape? would be great to do an iwagumi with glosso and little flowers all over.

saintly: I dont try to do any with my plants (just experiencies with diferents soils, and polinization and store seeds). I have them because i love them.

aaronnorth: Sure you can, i vae tons of Pogostemon helferi. Its a very easy plant to manipulate out of water.
Maybe tomorrow i will post some pics about Pogostemon helferi.

Excellent work and really nice to see what these plant are capable of.

Silly question, but I'll ask it anyway:

Why do these aquatic plants flower so well emersed but not so well submersed?

Is it something to do with pollination?

Hi,

The plants only flourish when they have all they need to survive and a litle more.

When we put the plants in a aquarium they are fighting to survive. They prefer stay out than inside water.
