Re: Tepoot's book

So, is what you are saying is that the Tepoot book is not giving the
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
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?


The answer is YES!  Most, if not all, of the photographs are from the
FAN farm just as they sell the plants.  They are giving the parameters
under which they are grown, not originally found.  I believe that
Tropica can give information on conditions at the source, but they
probably try to adapt them to a "neutral" condition for production.
