Re:Water Orchid - Spiranthes cenua

Howdy James;   Look on page 189 of Pablo Tepoot's Aquarium Plants and pg
113 in Dennerle Nature Aquaristic, System for a Problem-free aquarium
(Which tells of the plant coming from Florida, but all my books on FL
plants have no mention of it.).  JiM C.
PS: If you do not find or have those books let me know and I'll do a
detail information after I get home from night school tonight or work on
Wednesday.  JC

Subject: Water Orchid - Spiranthes cenua

Ever on the look-out for the unusual, I bought a small specimen of
Spiranthes cenua, the Water Orchid, this afternoon. Needless to say, the

archives of the APD contain only one reference to this plant and that
from someone looking for information on it. I have most of the current
of plant books and it is not listed in any of them.

Does anyone have any first hand (even second hand will do in a pinch)
information on this plant and its cultivation?
