Aquarium Plant Database (222 Plants and Counting)

The folks at Aquatic Plant Central have compiled a lot of information about freshwater aquarium plants. I've seen no other source of information that is as useful as what they've written. Unfortunately, the interface isn't useful as I'd like. So, I went ahead and re-compiled their information into the single-page chart you see below.

To filter the list, type something into the search box. You can sort by clicking on the column headings.
