[APD] Re: Black-listed aquarium plants: out of the water, into a pot
Of the non-aquatic plants that I accidentally acquired when I was just
getting started with live plants, I found that the one sold as 'brazil
sword' did great in a plain pot with regular potting soil--I gave it to
a colleague at work who keeps it on her desk where it grows wonderfully
thick and lush, and blooms and blooms and blooms; the "green hedge"
(ficus something?) was nearly impossible to keep wet enough, so
probably needs a proper terrarium with high humidity; and acorus
gramineus [sp?] (a variegated grass) did ok for a while before it
succumbed, probably more due to my neglect because it was an ugly
houseplant than because it was delicate.
