Can someone ID this? Its near a pond, I live in Texas. I wanted to add it to my aquarium.
Some of it is underwater near the edge of the pond thats why i assume it can live under water well. I just cant get a clear pic of that
Can i keep it underwater in my aquarium?
It does look like it btw
it tends to get leggy and ugly if it grows submerged.
go ahead, slap it through a 5-10% bleach solution, that's what they usually do to sterilize plants for frogs.
beware, it grows extremely fast.
the species you'll be collecting aren't as cute.
ummm, when it comes to water plants I currently have Nymphaea alba, Mentha aquatica, Nuphar lutea, Stratiotes aloides, Fontinalis antipyretica, Elodea canadensis, Pontederia cordata, Butomus umbellatus, Ceratophyllum demersum, Equisetum fluviatile and Menyanthes trifoliata.
that depends on the species, but you can rip most water plants out of the ground without issues.
it's easy to collect, you can just chop the heads off.
it grows nearby, I used to pay some girls like 20 cents for every bush of them 5 years ago and sold them for 2.50.
also not very common specie, and this one is native to texas, do you have a website you used?
