i've had a hard time with mine. (24" deep tank with 5 t-5 on stagered timing) The depth of the tank seems to make it hard for it to get started ( some algae growth on the lower leaves) BUT once it 4" or so tall, it grows great. Seems to be just another one of those high light plants. Slow grower for me as well ( no CO2)

Great looking plant! wanna buy some more, but ..... well..... bad things will happen if i spend money on the tanks right now ;) ;) lol

bump bump bump, someone buy this up so i'm not tempted any more! :D

Mine grows like stink in a 12" deep tank with CO2, 3WPG, and ADA I. Bump for good deal too. Knowing Bien, he'll give you a Safeway bag full of sunset hygro.

Best Regards,

Stuart

Well, I should try, right :) I know low light and low demanding plants are best for my tank, so I rather just stick with them then handle another rotten one + the disappointment. It's not about the money :)

Hey Bien.

I got your mermaid weed a while back it it has grown into stunning plants. On a sidenote, how many WPG are you running? Here's what mine does at 3 WPG in a 12" tank :)!





Just thought i would share how variable this species can be :D !

Best Regards,

So the cube is your Mermaid Weed farm...... I should come by one of these days and check out your tanks AGAIN. It is always a pleasure to see your art on display :)!

Best Regards,

Stuart
