Re: ID on last two.....

First pic, Crinum Calamistratum

Is the second plant stem rooted or chain rooted?

Re: ID on last two.....

I'm thinking Hygrophila Narrow?

Can you post a clearer pic of the leaves?

Re: ID on last two.....

I googled Hygrophila Narrow and I'm sure your right that it's hydro but not quite sure it's the Narrow. I'm looking for a good pic for comparison. the plant has been planted and it's in a half filled dusty tank so no new pics until the tank shakes out. I'm sure though you've put me on the right path.

Thanks to both of you!

Re: ID on last two.....

Just a note, when planting the Calamistratum, leave the base of the plant exposed, do not completely bury.

I'll check it as soon as the tank clears. Do you happen to know if any other plants, anubis, cryps, hydro also should be left partially above the gravel?

Re: ID on last two.....

Anubias should be planted with the rhizome completely above the gravel (Only roots planted), the best for them is to be attached to wood, rocks, terra cotta pieces, ect.

If you need to adjust the plant, gently pull straight up to desired height, no need to replant.
