Hope for Echinodorus!


A very wonderful thing I noticed!

My E. ascherschonicus, which has almost died due to
something not really identifiable (I wrote about it a while
ago) before it almost did die (now I'm trying to hold it
emersively and there's hope...) it spaned a couple of
flower-stems (the ones that young plants grow on), and the
end-parts of these stems remained in the tank floating on
the surface. Today while I was changing some water, i wanted
to throw out a piece of a stem, and... I noticed a small
plant is trying to emerge fom it (!) and the stem is only
about an inch long (!!!). Is there a chance I could re-grow
that ascherschonicus from that little stem?!
