Re: Advice re Amazon Swds worked
I wanted to acknowledge and thank whoever it was that said Amazon
Swordsplants can be made to send out runners by changing the photoperiod.
I had a huge specimen for 3 years but it never sent out a runner. Moved
it to another tank where the photo period was about 2 hours per day
longer although the intensity of light was about 1/4 as much. The plant
not only did well but in about 2 weeks it sent out runners that gave me a
total of 26 young plants. Then nothing for almost a year. I moved it
back to the original tank with more light and two hours less photo
period. After 3 weeks it has sent out its first runner.
When posting a question or answer you should all be aware that there are
lots more people out there that don't get involved but benefit from the
discussion. I just wanted to say thanks for advice I never read in a book.
Speaking of books - Is the second Amano book in English? If yes, tell me
where to send the check.
