I am back form Germany and I managed to locate a few new plants and many thanks to my friends in Germany. I am showing this plant as I believed that it is quite easy to grow and I hope that I am right and also for the fact that it is looking fine after the travel and looks more presentable.

A plant that I first across a couple of years ago but had a hard time sourcing for it. Finally got it a few months back and it is now growing on the farm. I have to say that the unique thing about this plant is that the leaves are very hard and rigid, I would say that it has the stiffest leaves among all the aquatic plants that I have ever cultivated.

A collecting trip for mayaca fluviatilis in Johor, found this patch in a rubber plantation. It was sprayed with weed killers the last time I visited and was not sure that we will find any plants growing but when we reach the area, we were surprised that they were growing very well and looks like they have recovered and we can revisit the area to collect again.
