    i went online today and started thinking, what is my favorite plant?
    so in
    1st place i would choose Hemianthus callitrichoides cuba because everytime people post pictures of it pearling it just leaves me in awe.
    2nd place would be anubias for there dark green leaves, rare flowers and it's almost indestructible. and you can easily tie them to driftwood.
    3rd plant would be weeping moss to create underwater trees.

    WHAT'S YOUR 3 FAVORITE PLANTS

    1. elatine hydropiper - wanted to try this plant for ages and finally will do in a couple of days
    2. ferns - let them be and they will slowly develop, treat them hard and they will change pretty fast
    3. utricularia graminifolia - never had success with this plant, keeps me challenging

    #1 riccia. I finally found the right way to tie it down and it does great.
    #2 Hemianthis macrathe-- umm--baby tears. It is cute very trimmable and very forgiving
    #3 UG...I just received some and hope that it likes me.
    There is a fourth...Gilly weed

    These plants I couldn't go without, and so by definition are my favourite.

    Crypts, ferns, moss.
