    Anyone Here Like to Cook/Bake?

    I was just wondering if anyone here likes to do fancy cooking/baking :D I personally love making cakes, desserts, and homemade bread. Anyone else share this hobby? I'll post pics of some of my forays in to the sweeter side of baking, if anyone is interested. No bread pics though :roll:

    Cotula coronopifolia

    Has anyone kept the above plant? I know it grows emersed naturally, but can't seem to find much information on it otherwise. Has anyone ever kept it in a paludarium or riparium?
