Re: Growing Aroids in Planted Ripariums

The scientific term for plants that grow on the edge of a stream is riparian.  The term Riparium is a combination of the scientific term with the word aquarium.  There are many good articles on the net on how to set up planted aquarium as well as some excellent books that can be found on pet websites although some are very expensive.

 I'd suggest you contact Devin Biggs dbiggs@xantusidesign.net for help since he is one of the guys that came up with the idea of the Riparium and offers a line of products that makes setting up your aquarium much easier.  Devin can likely suggest a good book for you as well.

I had never heard of a riparium before and have had trouble finding information about a palidarium. I think the planting of plants in containers is a wonderful idea and you have inspired me to try it in my 46 gallon bowfront aquarium. Can you refer me to any books on the subject? I did visit your website. Do you have more information about the fertilizing of plants?
