sorry didnt notice your post.

nope. i will try it in sept.
i think it SHOULD. it transitions very easily into emmersed growth, so im hoping it will transition back equally well.

I have really enjoyed the pictures of your emersed grow.

Is the a. petite growing in the potting soil or did you just place it on top of the soil? I have mine tied to a piece of lave rock, which I inserted into the potting soil in my emersed grow.

Also are you fertilizing with anything, and do you change the water out?

Beautiful collection of plants. Really makes me want to try my hand at a little emersed setup.

sorry i never responded guys.

Kiran: thanks bro.

Chris: thank you.
the anubias was planted into the soil. had some nice long roots already when i went to plant it, so i figured why not stick them in. the bruce however was simply pressed ontop as its longest root was maybe .5"
ill occasionally squirt a little miracle grow fertilizer in there. i dont think they really need it at this point.
no WCs, as im not really adding any water and hardly fertilizing. WCs are to keep salts from accumulating, but since im not adding any, no need to remove any.

Marconis: thanks.


ok, so this whole setup has been moved indoors. for the past week its been sitting inside with a 32w PC bulb over it. since i dont have a spare timer, ive been leaving the bulb on 24/7 and am loving the results. the persicaria is particularly happy with it, and everything else is growing better than before (it was outside, but in shade outside). hopefully this will convince the lileopsis mini to go back to growing mini. right now its leaves are taller than l. mauritiana, but i understand that the lileopsis all grow taller emersed than subersed.

how are you not getting algae/mold issues with the water that is sitting in each of the pots?

not sure what the ecological or biochemical explanation is, but i kept bog plants before, including flytraps, which like to be in waterlogged soil (thats essentially what is going on here), and it never molded or algaefied.

Nicely done Marko! Anything close to sending out any flowers?

I would agree: time to trim and sell, pal!! The buce probably doesn't mind the shade, though!
