    So as the title says i need plants for my 10 gallon that can be planted in the gravel. Aready know java fern cannot be planted in gravel. I honestly do not know what my LFS has so don't put down any uncommon plants. With all that said i will let you fellow hobbyist do the rest.

    I tied some moss and Anubias nana to some wood in my tank. I heard sometimes you can plant anubias in the gravel.

    Floating plants?

    Duckweed should do well.

    Oh yeah! If your ready to take out duckweed weekly.... :/ Also some water lettuce

    Not really interestes in floating plants i am interested in something easy for beginner plant owners that can be planted in gravel.

    Most column feeders would work. A lot of stem plants feed from the column. They would do fine provided with some nutrients.

    Not interested in floating plants right now but maybe in the future. I am interested in beginner plants that can be planted in gravel.

    Any specific names?

    Lol no point in repeating it but ok. Anubis you can try in the gravel (if its deep enough). What about guppy grass?

    Not really what i am looking for. I think i might try amazon swords. Know anything similar to it?

    I am curious to know what this plant might be that i just found. It kind of looks like long grass.

    Jungle Valisineria, those looks like large grass plants, they are extremely easy to grow.

    Can they grow in gravel? Also how tall do they get. Because i might get it for my 10 gallon.
  13. FanaticFishlore VIPMember

    I am pretty sure they can, I have mine in sand.
    They can get up to six feet, but trimming will keep them down.

    Ok so i am still open to more beginner plants that don't require much care and can be planted in gravel.

    Ok thanks.

    Consider crypts. Very tolerant IMO.
  16. BettaFishKeeper4302Well Known MemberMember

    Actually just got a crypt today lol. How do i propogate them without decreasing there size. Like if i propogate them will they be small forever?
  17. aussieJJDudeWell Known MemberMember

    They will send out runners, no need to propagate them manually.
  18. BettaFishKeeper4302Well Known MemberMember

    When will this happen?
  19. aussieJJDudeWell Known MemberMember

    Once estsblished in the tank. Depends on the plant. In most cases, a couple of weeks.

    I love ozelot swords, amazon swords, dwarf sagittaria, and anarchis. I provide each with a decent amount of lighting (25 watts) and replace their root tablets once a month.
