Growing Aroids in Planted Ripariums
I have a couple more shots of Anubias from this tank. The A. barteri in
this picture has grown quite big.
I have that one planted on a Riparium Supply trellis raft, which holds it
up above the water and provides a substrate for the roots and rhizomes the
develop. Over time the roots adhere tight to the foam raft.
Here is another tank picture from about a month ago.
The A. barteri is visible there on the far right. You can see that the
whole underwater area is quite shaded and dark. The barteri and Micrsorum
ferns had gorwn too large for the tank and were throwing too much shade,
so I removed them to another tank.
My last couple of shots show an Anubias barteri variety 'Nana', also
growing emersed on the trellis raft.
This plant is a more manageable size than the species. I have it planted
on several rafts and it comprises most of the midground of the aquarium
layout in the above-water area. It blooms often. Here is a picture of the
