    Hi,


    I received this plant a few months ago and never got a name. I really like it, and want to research the best conditions and ferts for it. I started noticing a lot of growth this past week, and it looks like another plant is growing from it as well.
    I have seachem root tabs, and I dose excel and iron daily, and potassium twice a week. It's a 75gal, am currently using 2 54watt 6500k t5ho bulbs. Thanks![​IMG]

    Isn't there a red-leaved variety of Lobelia cardinalis? I know that it can be grown submerged but for some reason I've never seen the red variety grown that way:;dk

    I have no idea, I am very new to fishkeeping and even newer when it comes to planted tanks. The store I bought it from didnt have sale sign on the plant and the owner didnt want to sell it to me. Sounded mysterious, he said all he could do is cut a stem from the one he had (he only had one)
    Not sure what it is, but I really like it, and some leaves are light pink
