Hi,
Has anyone had any experience with this plant?
If you have Amano's Nature Aquarium Books 2 and 3, it's in some scapes. Tall thin tubular grass.
I brought some and it looks just like a big bunch of lileopsis.
I'm 99% sure that it is just a big bunch of lileopsis and they sent the wrong order.
But what does young Isoetes look like?
and...
Does anyone know of a good reputable dealer who sells god specimens?

Thanks.

It's a rosette forming plant that requires high light and soft water. A few guys on APC are growing them and they are pretty tricky apparently. Not sure where you'll source them over here. When young they're a smaller rosette of spiky leaves.

Thanks.
Received a bunch of them the other day. Looks about right, just very small.
It was a bit of a tangled mess and i ended up throwing a fair amount away. Understand that its a difficult plant (supposedly not truly aquatic)
Got to give it a try though, just on the off chance it takes.... it's a beautiful plat.
