Re: Tepoot's book and water parameters

Merrill wrote, regarding the water parameters given in Tepoot's book:
"This book was written in conjunction with Florida Aquatic Nurseries and
the water values given is what they grow most of their aquatic plant in.
I don't, personally, find it to be a great book, but it's better than
nothing.  Florida Aquatic Nurseries grow gorgeous plants so they have
adapted plants to their water."

So, is what you are saying is that the Tepoot book is not giving the water
parameters the plants would normally be found growing in naturally, but
those to which they are adaptable to in cultivation?

i.e. - in nature, a plant might be found growing best in soft, acidic water
but since Florida Aquatic Nurseries grows it in medium hard, neutral pH
water, these are the water conditions listed in the book.

Do I have this correct?
