    I bought the last piece at C328 today. Looks like emersed form based on packaging.

    So decided to put it in my DSM nursery. I also decided to add peltier cooling as my S.Repens looks burnt especially the ones directly under LED.

    Temperature set to 26C (this setting is non-scientific). Pictured showing 28.4C as it was taken when I just started the cooling.

    Let's see how this one turns out.

    FYI, small batches of plants in the DSM Nursery were transplanted in my main tank from time to time, with success as the roots have matured to survive transformation from emersed to submersed.

    Hope the EQ also grows out and ready for transplant in the near future. Fingers cross.

    I saw the same specimen you bought. I think this one has a better chance of survival. All the besr and do report back on the outcome.

    Seems doing well in emersed condition. Look like 2 new shoots appearing but I'll wait a few weeks before reporting more.

    The greater challenge is converting from emerse to submerse form.

    Fhan, you like challenging yourself? 25 can buy submerge. from GC you know? The satisfaction of success in conversion however is priceless

    Time to report back.

    C328 last emerse sample not looking good. While there may be new core leaves growing, the exterior leaves have mostly melted. (Will edit and provide photos via mobile later)

    The exterior leaves of the green eriocaulon I bought from GC is also melting. Thankfully there's more inner core leaves appearing.

    those what you buy are submersed form or semi submersed. I grow it immersed and the plant is bigger and more green. only some red.

    Re: Eriocaulon Quinguangular/ Red Eriocaulon

    My immersed plant 3 weeks since.

    20160710_000007.jpg

    Now denser ( see post #83) but more or less same diameter. Looks seems to be 2 shoots (splitting ?).

    I also just bought one on thursday from C328 and plant it in my main tank. Using that as a control specimen, let's see the difference in 3 weeks.

    Re: Eriocaulon Quinguangular/ Red Eriocaulon

    The 2 heads specimen i bought from c328 also struggling. I did a drastic change to the lightings and now wait out and see. Change from a evo green element to a 120w output bulb shining directly on the e quin.
