[APD] Re: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 9, Issue 2
I remember a thread not too long ago where we were discussing some dwarf
sag or e tenellus that had suddenly grown longer in one part of a tank
than another, and that retained it's long growth pattern when moved to
another tank. Well, I pulled out some dwarf sag that was overgrowing
(from max length of about 4-5 inches to 8-10 inches, which in a 12 inch
high tank was obviously not going to work as foreground!). Then I put
some nice micro-tenellus (the very fine-leaved pink-tipped variety sold
as micro-tenellus v Amano) in the same spot. today I notice several of
my mostly 1-2 inch leaved plants have sprouted 4-6 inch leaves.
It is in the same relative spot in the tank (left foreground of a 12G
nano cube tank) as it was in the tank it came from, so the relative
amount of light that area receives should be close to identical.
Maybe there's something in that location, a hormone put out by the roots
of the dwarf sag?
