Can someone/anyone ID the plant circled in red please?
Looks a lot like Staurogyne sp. a new species from Tropica. Hard to say for certain from that photo though.
Staurogyne haas the same shape, colour and growth pattern, so if that's what you're after then it will fit the job nicely, even if it isn't that species in the photo.
Who's tank is that mate?
Is that grass in the foreground, or has my bad eyesight failed me once again?
I have just started growing Staurogyne myself, and pretty much agree with George (I doubt if there are many that know Staurogyne better than George).
The grassy foreground will either be Eleocharis acicularis or E. parvula. It has been very neatly mown.
It could be UG, Utricularia graminifolia?
I agree, the lawn is UG or very well pruned hairgrass.
After some thought, I'm convinced the other plant is Staurogyne. Can't wait to grow it again soon...
It could be UG, but mine has never grown that upright. Having said that, the plant in this tanks foreground is fairly dense, maybe forcing it upwards.
UG is probably my fave plant at the moment.
Doesn't look like UG to me. Never seen UG grow that straight or that fine. I'd go go dwarf hairgrass.
The other plant could be Staurogyne or possibly Hygrophila sp. Porto Velho (dwarf hygro). Hard to see without a close up.
Belongs to a guy named Ghazanfar Ghori on APC, no journal for the tank, just a picture in the plants for sale section that I spotted
That was my guess too
Thanks George, just what I wanted to hear, seems like I'll be going with Staurogyne for the new set up then
Thanks to all who gave input
Thanks guys... doesn't look anything like the acicularis I've just got rid of, so its probably parvulla. Gonna have to give that a go one day...
