Very well done guppyguy. Very informative. Even with my skill level I might be able to grow this one with the video that you have prepared. Great way to profile the plant. Thanks

The plants do really well with double the dose of iron of the recommended tank size when using Seachem Flourish Iron. The leave turn red also and roots get dark red and the plant pop out little white flowers everywhere. These plants are iron hogs.

The red root floaters I now have the leaves nearly as red as the roots and still flowering well. They really stick out when surround by salvinia minima.
