Would like to buy this plant, but most sites say it does not like PH in the 7.6range. Anyone have any luck with this plant in the 7.6 range? I have 1.8 wpg lighting in a 20 long low light plants tank, no CO2.
All of my plants are in water around 8.0-8.4 because that's how the tap comes and my peat moss hasn't come in... And all of my plants (except anarchis and val) have grown very well. I'm sure they would do better in softer water but the growth I see already is substantial!
More than 10 years
I don't have it anymore but I used to grow Bolbitis Fern in my rift lake tank at PH 8.2 & it used to love it. It shouldn't be a great problem at 7.6.
PH recommendations for plants are the same as for fish, the ideal range is given but the species can usually still do fine with PH outside of that range (within reason)
It could take a little time to adapt & may even die off abit but it should adapt over the course of 2-3weeks.
