[APD] RE: low-light red plants


I have some Cyptoryne Wendtii "Red", which gets a nice rusty-reddish color and grows upright; the leaves are similar in appearance to amazon sword leaves, only a bit smaller. My tank is high-light "barr method", but even in low-light tanks it gets a deep-olive to rusty-red color. I constantly cut out and throw away the runners this plant sends out, email me off the list and I'll gladly send you some for the cost of shipping. numbr_9 at hotmail_com

Actually, I do have a piece of driftwood that I'm putting into the tank, so
I guess that does present a colour change ;-)  In a 15g maybe this is all I
need.  C. Wendtii has interested me, and I am thinking of that, but does it
not lie flat?  I was hoping for something that would stand tall in the
background, and, no, red is not necessarily a prerequisite, I just think
some of the red plants are quite striking.  But any colour I think would
create a nice contrast. Varying shades of green is a good point...mind you
I'm not familiar enough with all the plants yet to know what to look for,
and my LFS only carries basic varieties in store.  I will have to order
through them any specific plants which they don't have in stock.
thx Rachel
