I got the Pogostemon stellatus from czcz - Joe - last July. I knew it would be too big for my 10 gallon tank but I couldn't resist! Joe sent me a very small, 2-inch little skinny side shoot. I put it in my 5 gallon tank. When started to get a little bigger (probably by October) I put it in my 10 gallon tank. That little tiny side shoot had split into 4 separate stems by then. They were fairly skinny, though. But by February, I realized that I could not keep these beautiful stems in a 10 gallon any longer. I sent three stems to Hoovercat - Bob - in March. I kept one for my tank. It's gorgeous but still a bit big for a 10 gallon.
I had originally thought that this plant was a Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata "Cuba". Joe wasn't sure either since it was so small. As it grew, it became apparent that it was indeed Pogostemon stellatus. Randy, you actually ID'd it for me, in that thread with P sounds - "Post Pogostemon Pictures Please". That was a fun thread - remember?
Bob, I'm really glad I sent you the plants when I did, in mid-March. We have not had a warm spell since. Our lows are still in the 30s at night. The whole month of April has been abnormally cold here. We lost our lilac blooms for the year.
About the Bacopas - I'm trying to remember what I sent you. I have Bacopa caroliniana, Bacopa monnieri, and Bacopa australis. I probably sent you Bacopa monnieri bottom cuttings and lots of B. australis. I did get the B. monnieri from Randy! The B. monnieri was one of my first plants, when I wasn't properly set up to have a planted tank, so it died back then. Randy sent me some so I could have my favorite plant again. (they are all my favorites!) The Bacopa monnieri may be what you can't quite identify, Bob. The leaves are kind of thick and the plant resembles the terrestrial jade plant. The leaf spread isn't as big as the B. caroliniana.
I know what you mean about the pics being raw. I haven't taken a pic of my tanks in a while because I feel they aren't picture worthy at the moment. But I think your tank is coming along great, and the pics are very nice! You have a great school of neons or cardinals. Those fish look nice in a planted tank.
