Larry Little Posted November 23, 2020 Share Posted November 23, 2020 Hello friends -- I'm new to this forum and starting off with a doozie. I'm trying to find information on a plant species; I have absolutely no idea what the name is. How's that for a start? Anyway, it's a fairly low growing foreground plant that was plentiful, easy to grow and propagate, and the last time I saw it was around 1979. The best way I can describe it is it looks like a generic Crypt. type with 3" - 4" long narrow leaves on short stems. The tops of the leaves are a medium to dark green with undersides that are wine colored to maroon. Here's the kicker; they freely propagate by runners like Vallisneria spiralis.. Just two or three of these plants can propagate to cover the substrate in a 20-gallon tank in just a few months. As I said, several families of us would pass it back and forth to start new tanks. We couldn't kill the stuff. I got out of the hobby for a few years and Have been trying to find this plant since getting back in a few years ago. Is this ringing any bells for anybody? I'd dearly love to find this plant again; if any of y'all have any ideas, please gew back with me. Thanks Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
