    Hi guys and girls

    - this thread allready show the basic problem of identifying our plants............they will differ (some more than others) in appearence depending on all kind of parameters affecting growth.

    This is ecactly why i's so da... difficult to determine plant species from just a photo..... and why the species often end up being determined wrong!!!
    - sorry to be the party-stopper here, but it's not as straight forward as it may seem...........
    Mick.

    Hi
    I get your drift, plants can look like a species that's very similar in different water parameters. I have experienced that on this thread ... even from the fella who sold me the plant when the plant has lost colour a few weeks later....... all the plant pictures i have posted come from a reliable source.

    I don't compromise anyones reliability here, my friend..........just pointing out a (serious) problem in identifying plants from photo.
    There's a reason, that botanically we don't determine plants by leaf - but by flower. Those differ far less in appearance.
    - and pic.s can give a very good idea of where to look for closer determination. A genus can often be established, and common species often so. It's the details, that bring problems (yep; Devil is in the detail)...........there's just sooo many sub-species, varieties, cultivars etc. to go around !!!!

    Hi Mick
    This is for members to have a rough guide to how a plant generally looks, when selecting for aquarium use...its not a botanical journal on plant identification.
    As you stated a more accurate identification could be made when the plant flowers...but that doesn't happen that often...when plants are submerged, even then that could be dubious in certain circumstances.
    Growing plants emersed would be helpful, to be more accurate....but this is a hobby to enjoy growing plants...not to get wrapped up in plant identifications.
    Cheers

    I totally agree ....... only see the desire to be (too) accurate showing allready.;)
    This will serve perfectly as a rough guide, and should be used as such.
    - keep on posting............:p t.

    Thanks for your input...its appreciated.:thumbup:
    Hopefully in the future this is where plant enthusiasts will come to identify their local fish store plants purchased with no labels.
    Be it submerged or emersed.
    All plant pictures with growing flowers greatly appreciated..for future discussion:happy: and identification.
    Small steps .......and all that.
    Cheers
