i have been acquiring quite a few new plants for testing in emersed culture--it's that time of year. the other day i received another box of plants via a TPT transaction from Crispino Ramos.



these are great looking specimens. i added a blog post with quick snapshots of my four new plants:

Hydrophyte's Blog: More New Plants

it will be interesting to see what these do. i will add blog posts later on with updates.

regards,

I am trying to develop a more tidy display for the Hydrophyte's Blog. I just switched out the old blog theme in favor of a new one. This is how the blog looks displayed in Carrington Blog...



I got Carrington Blog from the WordPress.org site. It needs more work, but I think that I like this better. I might have fixed up the previous version with the old theme, but I had trouble figuring out the code. Now I just need to move some things around and fix the alignment of the pictures and so on.
