Has anyone else done this?
- Many have
What kind of substrate material should I use?
- LECA or river gravel, I've used Caribsea Floramax
enough for the riparium plant?
- Yes just keep water circulating & aerated, and soft by mixing water changes with distilled water. i.e. 50/50 tap/Distilled, I occasionally use Excel, but do dose with Flourish, and have a DIY CO2 system with yeast for submerged plants. I used Tetra root tabs for my anthurium, not that it needed it, but it doesn't kill it. I've used Orchid Myst (humic/fluvic acids) to dissolve mineral buildup.
And what kind of plant should I try? I was thinking something tall, like a cyperus variety... your thoughts?
- Go 4 it, I've tried zebrina, pothos, spider plants, iresene bloodleaf, spath, anthurium, jasminium, mints, dieffenbachia. Invest in HO CFL spotlights.
