    Hello All,

    I am not sure if this thread is a repetitive, but can we have a thread dedicated to submerged plants' (inside or out of water) pics?

    Here's a pic of my all time favourite plant Anubias Barteri (with it's baby) :
    Name: Anubias Barteri
    Care: medium to low.
    Light needs: medium to low again
    Co2 needs: Can do well without co2
    Placement in Aquarium/Terrarium: Mid ground, tied to a rock/wood or Placed on the substrate with the roots inside (the substrate) and rhizome exposed to light.
    Special care: Nothing as such, just that it would grow various kinds of algae in hi-tech tanks (submerged) since it's a relatively slow grower.
    In short, a great and VERY hardy plant!

    Cheers,

    Karthik.
    PS: admins: does this thread make any sense?

    Brilliant @Karthik
    Yes it makes sense and its a great way to get those plant images we need for the Knowledge base aswell.

    I've also just setup a gallery addon so posting the images there to would be great.

    Latin name:
    Common name and or further details..

    If your Really dedicated then adding them to the plant database would be amazing!

    But requires each plant to have full information entered, height, position, light Requirements etc..

    Thanks
    Jason

    Perfect Keith (y) with a few more details it will be a great addition to the site, same is planned for fauna and other related flora.

    With over 200+ Aquarium Plants it's a long road ahead :) but will be worth it.

    I would really like to have two small setups, one emersed form and one submersed each with the same plants and then photograph both forms for the database, hopefully the Emersed forms will produce flowers aswell, along with other members photos we should have a perfect database over time :)

    The plants would have to be in alphabetic order.

    Some how there would have to be an Index that would link you to the plant.

    Looks like you could be setting your self up for a lot of work.

    Collecting the info including photos would be the easiest part.

    My old brain it ticking as I write this to save a lot of work is there a list somewhere that could be copied and pasted of Aquarium plants, then the plant info could be added to the plant name?

    Eg but is it copy write?
    http://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/forumapc/plantfinder/all.php

    List of freshwater aquarium plant species
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_freshwater_aquarium_plant_species

    That only took a few minutes to get the Wikipedia could be the easiest to work from.

    Thanks Keith, yes the current Knowledge base allows alphabetical, tag word search, field search etc.. I'll get onto this soon.

    I imagine any other website that has plant Information would be copyrighted in some way, most definitely the images.

    The wiki group is certainly a head start when it comes to images etc, i have a load of Emersed images I'll use but submersed is limited and is where members can help, along with any further information they can provide about the individual species, such as any growing tips they have learned over time.

    Jason I have found them very reliable when looking for info for a reply post.

    I did a similar list with Non Aquatic Plants sold as safe at the LFS in Australia it took months to collect info and photos now the Forum is dead.
