• Welcome to ScapeCrunch!

    We are a friendly, online community of people interested in planted aquariums. We support and help each other learn and grow. It is our sincere hope that you will join us and find our tight-knit community valuable and fun!

    ScapeCrunch is different than Facebook Groups. Here's how:

    • It is a place where you can make long-term friends in the planted aquarium hobby and have long, multi-day talks on specific subjects.
    • Unlike social media, online communities like ScapeCrunch are much better at curating collective knowledge and in fostering deeper relationships.
    • They lend themselves better at long-form discussions.
    • You can maintain a thread on your personal aquarium with pictures and details. Other members can comment, help and ask questions. You can do the same with their Member Tank threads.

    Where Facebook is more like a large city-wide party, ScapeCrunch is more like your neighborhood bar "where everybody knows your name. And they're always glad you came." It's always fun to go to large parties but it's at the local bar that you feel people really know you. The great part is that you can and should go to both!

    Please consider joining to become a full fledged member of our growing community of planted aquarium obsessed enthusiasts. Let's grow together!

Hi guys,
I'm new to the forum and this is my first post!! Thanks for the invite!!

I'm trying to grow Erio sp. Ratna emersed. I know that they can make seeds but I'm not really sure on how to pollinate them. I've read online that you'll need to pollinate them with soft brush when you have 4-5 stalks at the same time. But that's about it.

If someone has experience with it, can you please ehelp me understand the process of extracting the seeds and pollination itself.

Hi and welcome to ScapeCrunch. Thanks for posting this question. It's one I'm not terribly familiar with.

I have only seen this done with Anubias species and I think there are some videos on this. I suppose the process would be similar with Erio ratna.

Question for you, why are you looking to go through the process of pollination, seed germination, etc? Is it just to learn and experiment with it (cross pollinations, etc.) or are you trying to cultivate them?

Thank you for the reply!!

Yes, I want to learn about it and do it once so that I can add Erios via seeds to my plant resumešŸ˜‚šŸ˜‚
