They're all excellent options and my go to low-energy stems.udwigia repens , Hygrophila 53B are two that I currently keep and grow fine without co2.
Also Liknophilla sessiflora, Hygrophila Difformis
AR and Blyxia japonica are difficult, even in high tech. Ludwigia repens is easy, L super red more difficult. I wonder if you have high light to find them easy in low tech.Low tech Dutch style, mmm. Ludwigia repens definitely, lobelia cardinals, Ludwigia super red, Blyxa japonica, alternanthera reineckii will all work well low tech. Plus all the other plants mentioned above.
No definitely not high light and certainly not suggesting they are easy to grow lowtech. Just saying they can be grown in these conditions.I wonder if you have high light to find them easy in low tech.
Rotala rotundifolia grows really fast in my low tech tanks - but the leaves are very small and it is not exciting me. I’ve taken most of it out now since my tanks are small and replaced it with things which are more interesting. I gave bolbitis a go on the recommendation of others on here and it is growing a treat for me - I have it glued to little pebbles and can pretend it’s a stem plant 🙂Cheers everyone! will try AR, Ludwigia repens and Hygrophila 53b. Any Rotalas recommended?
No CO2 with 20w lighting, 37 litres (w50xl25xh30) aquarium.It really depends on what you are calling "low tech" I assume you mean no C02 and below 12w lighting???

After reading replies, here are the plants I’m going to order:
Rotala macranda or rotundifolia
Yep, I’m going to order most of this first and try to plant it in a pot like @Zeus. Pot scape. to see if they survive this condition or not.Are you settled on plant choices already or want some further options?

Fab well let's us know if you are looking to expand your options for the next round 😊Yep, I’m going to order most of this first and try to plant it in a pot like @Zeus. Pot scape. to see if they survive this condition or not.
