Update - 21 Days of DSM (7.27.13)
The scape is now three weeks at 100 PAR and no water. I lost one shoot of S. Repens for it was set higher than any of the others (1.5") and likely did not get enough water to the roots. I tend to error on the side of early removal practices for fear of decay, mold, fungus, etc. Especially in such a small tank.
The new Glosso, as individually (read: painfully) planted is doing much better compared to the previous crop which I planted in ametuer fashion.
One of my favorites, a 2" square of UG, should arrive on Monday. It seems others either have one of two experiences with this carnivore: (1) awesome beautiful success; or (2) total failing decay. Any secrets to obtaining route one would be appreciated. The plant as sent comes from an emmersed specimen so hopefully the shock of transport will be offset somewhat by the continuity of growing conditions.
I am looking for more S. Repens if anyone has some to spare. I promise to plant low in altitude as I learned my lesson.
Here is a full frontal right after a healthy misting and front glass cleaning, yet before the application of saran wrap.
P.S. Sorry for the crappy i-phone shots. I need another hobby (photography) like a fish needs a bicycle
