Easy to Grow Plants - List

Unread postby parthapratim22 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 10:09 pm

I have grown very few plants till now, and still to try maximum "EASY TO GROW PLANTS" and easily available in our country. I would ask my planted members to make a list sum-up of such. Following I have grown and for me these are easy to grow plants.

Condition: Easy to grow plants require, 3-4watt per gallon light, minimum DIY CO2, available of Macro and micro nutrient in water column.(May correct if require)

Better to give scientific name and add a link of "CARE" for further readings

1) Hemianthus micranthemoides link http://diszhal.info/english/plants/en_H ... moides.php
2) Rotala rotundifolia link http://www.aquascapingworld.com/plantpe ... item_id=48
3) Bacopa monnieri link http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/foru ... .php?id=55

Add to the list, may help many of us.

Please look here http://aquapetz.com/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=515

Apart of these I always like, Java fern, Anubias, and mosses in low tech tanks.

Nice addition, then why not all with scientific names, so the thread becomes more formal and easy to access.

Most are covered already but a lot of them are still there.

1. Hygrophilla Sp. " Tiger"
2. Chladophora - Moss balls
3. Cryptocorynes -- The best option after Anubias.

I found java fern really hard to grow, literally always failed :( except once for windelov. I am not sure how people grow so easily.
I found it hardy for sure,doesn't die, but doesn't just grow.

I would suggest posting pics from your tank rather than linking-just gives the forum more confidence!!
