James Purchase asked about Spiranthes cernua(note spelling).
This so called "Water orchid" is native to N. America and
is usually found in wet meadows, near streams and wet magins
I don't know anything about growing it in an aquarium but I
seriously doubt that it could be done for very long. I can
grow a Cattleya under water for a little while,but ofcourse,
that doesn't make it an aquatic.
I would grow it in an open topped tank, potted in spaghnum,
somehow suspended a the surface. ?
A paludarium would be a super way to cultivate this plant.
Hmm, now how can I get some?
