I agree with thez_yo. Plus, most people would be unlikely to buy a capensis at an auction, unless it was some kind of mutant.
By the way, the U. pubescens and the G. violacea are amazing!

A bit off topic, but that capillaris really reminds me of a patch of mutant daisy flowers I saw last spring... I wonder if it is a similar genetic mutation? It was basiclly 3 flowers joined together seamlessly, even the flowerstalk was about a centimetre wide, but only 2 millimetres deep... There were quite a few seperate clumps, so I think they may have been fertile! I saw a dandelion like this too, but I didn't have my camera :/

I had two capensis do that simultaneously last fall. I took pictures, but they're lost in Photobucket somewhere. Sadly, both succumbed to mealies.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
That capilaris is freaky awesome!

What is ADA Aquasoil? Is it actually "soil" or clay bits or...? They don't sell any of the ADA products around here outside the Nature Aquarium Books.
The capillaris was one plant when I potted it, but that was a long time ago so it might have sprounted off another. Today was the first day in over 4 months that I have removed it from its corner, it gets all its water from the tray method.
There are very long threads about what exactly ADA aquasoil is in the aquatic forums, all I recall is that it is clay based with some peat and tons of other things. You can get some ADA stuff in the states, if you google it, it comes right up. We picked up alot of ADA stuff when we were in Japan years ago.
