Re: Re: Growing Emersed

>>I've heard the same is true of Anubias as well -- as soon as they start to
grow out of the water, they take off growing.  I've exprimented with this a
few times, but failed every time!  As soona s the leavesare lifted out of
the water, no matter how much is left underwater, they wilt and die back.
The whole plant, if not submerged completely, soon follows. . . . Anyone
have any tips on moving from Submerged to Emersed -- for anubias, java fern,
or any other plant. . . . ?<<

The "trick" is to keep the plant wet and in humid air if possible. Its dry,
warm air that kills the plant. I had some Anubias growing emmersed under a
water fountain, outside. And they did fine, as long as they didnt get dry.
This was in California where there is practically no humidity. Indoors you
can use a mister, or have the plants in a sealed container...
