    Hello All,

    We had been to a trip to the Western Ghats in India. This place is a biodiversity hotspot and one of the few remaining places of such kind in India (sadly!!) :(

    I am not sure about the species except for one.

    Here are a few plants i collected along a small stream:

    I think this is a Ludwigia Species:

    33142793595_60a1347609_b.


    Unknown species, growing well half submerged and turning purple-ish:

    32759888900_5bbce4a3ff_b.

    This one looks like a nice terrestrial plant. I am a sucker for red leaved plants:

    32297036264_86ef2c9514_b.

    This one's a rotala indica (with the purple flowers):

    32297052674_e3f226003d_b.

    I hope this is an erio:

    32985973452_f2e7915209_b.
    I am growing everything emersed. Let's see how it shapes up.

    Cheers,

    Just copy nature for that area. In tropical Australia many plants are under water during the wet season 3-4 months then nothing for the rest of the year except the very high community.

    Hi Keith,

    Any pics/references regarding aquatic or semi aquatic plants in Australia?

    Cheers,

    Its a totally different world up there if the small nasties don't get you the very big ones will there are no tracks or roads into the areas at all which means river access only and guess who live in many of these areas. There are some areas that are accessible that have plenty of bird life but many only accessible during the dry seasons.

    Tropical Inland its totally different again some very interesting plant life

    There are some very interesting plants here at the Cairns Botanical Gardens.

    As long as the human intervention is kept under check, it's great.
