Very interesting journal, thanks for sharing. I have been thinking about doing this as we get more and more species of plants for our tanks. Will continue to study and hopefully get it going soon.
its very easy. i highly recommend it.
Curious how the downoi did in the emersed setup, I didnt see it in the latest post so wondering if it survived, its one of my favorite plants and I might do an emersed setup for it so was wondering
it was doing great. but then the setup was neglected, and over time, the water evaporated, and while most condensed back, some did escape and there was no standing water around the pots when i redid the tubs. so many of the plants were suffering from dehydration, and there were only 2 small sprigs of p. helferi left, which i planted in my 20 long.
Nice work! I'm definitely subscribed to this thread! I'm currently expanding my emersed project! I hope mine grow as well as yours!
Where do you keep your water level in relation to the surface of your substrate?
i just did a massive trim on it (plants available in the SnS). didnt take before and after pics, but did notice 2 of my ludwigias flowering and took pics (will post later). the c. wendtii brown flowered again too, but the spathe was rotting - plus thats a common occurrence by now.
I gotta say that trident gametophyte is freakin sweet!
thank you. not sure what became of it. either its one of the trident sporophytes in there, or it died.
