Re: Didiplis diandra

I have had Didiplis die out completely in a tank because of crowding by
other plants and because I stopped adding CO2, only to come back from seeds
when I recreated open, uncrowded conditions with plenty of light, nutrients
and CO2 again.  Didiplis self-fertilizes or cross-fertilizes underwater and
produces little pink, floating fruits that drop a seed in a few days.  A
seedling will branch as it grows towards the surface, and, by the time it
reaches the surface, there can be as many as 20 branches.  It also grows up
more branches from the base.  Didiplis looks nice growing out of a mat of
Glossostigma mixed with some E. tenellus.
