    Will only new growth have the "new" leaves, or will the current stems also shed old leaves and grow new leaves?

    Why can aquatic plants grow outside water but terrestrial plants not learn to grow in water.

    It's amazing how may of the aquatic plants we keep and admire in the hobby do naturally lead an ever changing life depending on the flow of the river tides and seasons or conditions and rainfall that may vary from year to year, adaptability is the key to their success. Take Sri Lanka's crypts for example that may live one year out the water and the next season in. Only a small proportion of our plants are truly aquatic all of their life. We kind of force most of them to a truly aquatic life and they have no option but to agree ..

    Any guesses and where ? :)

    It's C.parva growing wild in Sri Lanka.

    ''Cryptocoryne parva is the smallest known Cryptocryne and is endemic to the highlands of central Sri Lanka near the city of Kandy, where it grows in dense communities as an amphibious resident of stream banks. It has been in the aquarium hobby for many years, but has never been very common, most likely due to its very slow rate of growth. Despite this, it can be found without much trouble from specialty plant sellers and hobbyists''.

    Was thinking we could possibly use this thread to identify species between the two forms. I'm already amazed at the info out there.

    If we do have something similar could the mods add this too that thread.

    Cheers
