  • Possible to convert brackish plants?

    Is it possible to convert plants that were living in a brackish environment into a freshwater environment?

    I'll post pictures of this plant that I got yesterday in a cove when I was in San Diego when I get home.

    We'd need to ID the plant first; but odds are very good that you could.

      Java Fern and Najas can survive brackish. I did brackish with my Endlers for a short time. Najas did fine.

        My understanding is that he wants to take a brackish plant and grow it in freshwater.

          Ah, It would help if I would read things. Darn.

          Usually you can. Brackish water is changing all the time, it is not uncommon for brackish to go full fresh or even full salt at times. Things that live in places like this are very adaptable.

                Gee, thanks. I thought they were pink elephants.

                  I'm not exactly sure what it is; but it reminds me a bit of Dwarf Sag. Were there any runners for propagation?

                    Yes, I tried pulling one plant and it was attached to several plants. My first guess was a dwarf sag as well, but didn't know if they originally grew in brackish water.

                      From what I've read, Dwarf Sag is found in both fresh and brackish waters.

                        Very nice. I now know where to get dwarf sags for free ;-).

                        They look pretty amazing growing in their natural environment. It was like an underwater lawn.
