love the eleocharis sp belem.so far its been the most favourite of my hairgrasses.It stays so close to the ground or more specifically the runners travel below the sub .have sourced it last year from aquaessentials as tropica 1-2 grow.but emersed forms are much taller.
but yet to try stauro purple and cabomba sp belem.

i am not a hardscape guy and to me you are like the God of planteds. If i would ever follow someone's path it would be you only. Loved every single tank. thanks a lot for sharing.

As u r now my guru(self-called :D ), please enlighten me on the requirements of Erio. I have been looking for details on it, but couldnt find of much useful info. please enlighten me on the basic things it require apart from the lights. and is it a soft water or hardwater species?

You are right, E belem grows really compact. Yes, it looks similar to E parvula when grown emersed, difficult to see the difference. Staurogyne purple is very fast growing plants and easy to maintain. C belem takes a while to get used to new tanks, once acclimatized it grows like a weed.

Yes you could be the one of the first, keep watching our FB page and wesbite.

Thanks for your kind words. I must confess that i am not good at aquascaping, those guys are Sriram, Partha, Abhirup etc. I find challenge in growing different and new plants within whatever conditions and hardware i have.

All my plants except Moss and Ferns are grown under the same condition - ADA substrate, 6500 K PLL lights, high CO2, high nutrient dosing, 50% weekly water changes, and weekly pruning. I use tap water directly and have never tested water parameters like PH, GH , KH, TDS etc. I add a few crystals of Sodium thiosulphate intermediately after water changes to remove chlorine.
