    low requirement = undemanding

    plants which do not readily need high intense light, high dosage of fertilization and high maintenance

    u have to do a search as they are quite alot species which is undemanding.

    some plants: H. difformis, Cryptos, anuabis, ferns, echinodorus (require rich base fert)

    Woot2,

    You're back to square one. Please define what you mean by low requirement? Less fert, less light less CO2, less pruning, more hardy?

    We can't help you if we do not know what you want to know.
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    wootwoot, are you referring to plants that do not require any maintenance at all? If so, just try java moss.

    My tank is quite low and I find that Nuphar japonica is doing pretty well. Just to let you know, you need a tank of at least 2.5 ft because this plant can get quite big. You need to control their growth(height).
