I got one of the Pot-O-Plants at the last meeting. I stuck all of them in the gravel in a 55 with DIY CO2 and low and behold one of them is actually growing! They are all alive, but this one grows. I read the bag and looked at some pictures and it is Hornwort. OK, I hear you guys laughing. I'm sure you use a lawn rake to clear your tanks of this stuff, but up to now my big excitement is when my Anubias puts on a new leaf ounce a month. Who knows there may be other plants I can grow.

That is how it all starts, first one plant grows, then you begin to think you can grow another, then another.....then you want to get points in the HAP program. I think this is how Jason Baliban got started.

I am still excited and completely shocked every time I get a new plant and it grows! Well done Rahnk, you will be assimilated soon :)

Congratulations! I'm not laughing because I know that feeling of happiness when you see new shoots!

Just waiting for someone to suggest CO2 to progress your assimilation.

By the way I got some bacopa caroliniana from someone at the last meeting and that is taking off in my tank with CO2.
