[APD] Aquarium plants Reference book
Ramon, Christel Kasselman's book 'Aquarium Plants' is by far the BEST book
on aquarium plants available today. She has travelled extensively all over
the world studying and collecting plants for many years and if it is
available in the hobby, its in her book. The information is rock solid and
can be relied upon. There are aquatic plants she doesn't list, but that is
because they aren't suitable for use in an aquarium.
Each plant mentioned in the book is represented by a photograph (at least
one, sometimes more than one), and she lists the plant family the species is
from, gives details on the etymology of the name, the natural distribution
of the plant and a full description of the plant and cultivation details in
The last section of the book discusses NEW aquarium plants which were not
listed in the earlier, German editions.
More than just a lisitng of plants, Kasselmann's book discusses aquatic and
marsh plants in Nature, ecological factors to consider when growing plants,
flower morphology and biology, propagation of various aquarium plants, and
the correct choice of aquarium plants.
It will be a brave (or foolish) person who tries to best this book.
If every member of the APD owned a copy, there would be far fewer "which
plant is this?" questions.
