Little itty bitty nanos

Here are some projects that I have been working on. These little nanos grow in the windowsill. I started with hairgrass and tried crypt parva. Why I didn't go with anubia nano?...next plant!

if you choose to do anubias, try regular miracle grow soil and emmersed. they grow much faster, and there is no transition so you can grow them out fast, and then put big showy anubias in your tanks.

The window faces east and gets direct sun for about 4-5 hours in winter. In summer, there is alot of leaves so direct sun is about 2 hours, but daylight can be 14-15 hours!

Very cool! Do you have to change the water frequently?

Now what are you going to do next time someone shows up with a bottle of wine and you have no glasses?

Edit, now I see from your blog they're brandy snifters!
