simple question really. has any body here grown this plant "Marsilea hirsuta " im thinking of growing it in a nano tank like oliver knott did for tropica.. but just wondered if any people on the ukaps had delt with the plant and if so.. Do you recommend and is it any good for being a carpeting plant
cheers for your time....passerby.

Grown it. In fact I have a half seed tray of it growing emersed on a windowsill at the moment! It grew fairly slowly for me in a fairly low-tech tank and looked very much like glosso when submerged. Personally I prefer the emersed growth so keep it on the windowsill! I might try it again when I tire of replanting glosso every couple of months...
