good pt....I had the Barc Long on the right but it ran out of room. The Giant Hygro was more left and moved it to the center...will think about moving them around in a couple of days. FUN FUN FUN

I love the giant hygro's Mike, they are doing great in there. I wish they had grown like that for me they are a beautiful plant....
In my case, what the angels didnt shred just faded away ! :cry:

Maybe consider a stem or 2 of that towards the right side for that leaf size balance that you and anonapersona were talkin bout...

Lookin good Mike and dont worry, at 88 degrees that ICH will be gone in no time...

Geez, I wish I'd been keeping tabs on this thread all this time. Mike, how's the barclaya doing? In my and other locals' experience, they promptly drop their leaves after flowering. Is it holding up okay? Green or red it is one of my favorite plants and one that doesn't get enough recognition as a centerpiece plant, IMO.

2La,

The Barc is doing AWESOME to say the least! I will try to put some photos in here today. The flower stalks run to the surface every few days or so. At the bottom there are tons of smaller leaf groups that are BEGGING to be sent to the surface. I got this plant from Roger Miller here in town and it has just taken off! The Giant Hygro stems are kinda blocking it here. Roger thinks that I should be able to propagate it once those little plantlets take off a bit more. It truly is a great plant!

Jason,

You got that right moved stuff around to put them in!

Digger,

The plant on the left is Barclaya longifolia....I think the common name is orchid lily but not sure. This is one of my favorite plants.
