Are there any live plants that will survive with a sand substrate?
Ive had success with allot of them: (without root tabs, with ferts and medium lighting) -Amazon sword -Italian Val -val americana -Dwarf Pennywort -Lots of different stem plants -Temple plant And Ive herd good things about s-reppins however I have tried to order it 3 times now and received the wrong plant all 3 times! So I cant tell you myself. These are photos after they where first planted and they are still doing great.
@MelloYello staurogeyne repens is a low growing carpeting plantthat is bushy. What you have pictured is hydrocotyle, most likely hydrocotyle triparta 'japan'. @RWP0505 most any plant will do well in sand, however it's a good idea to use plenty of root tabs to support growth.
I didnt say that I have s-reppens I said I tried multipule times to get it and failed and hydrocotyle triparta 'japan' was also nicknamed dawf pennywort... Amazon.com : Hydrocotyle Tripartita Japan | Dwarf Pennywort Live Aquarium Plant Potted for Freshwater Fish Tank by Greenpro : Pet Supplies I actually recieved 2 plants of this japan stuff instead of s-repins, however it is doing a good job carpeting in my sand. I even have some pearling!
Yes, almost any rooted plant is able to grow in sand.
