Plant out of Water

So a few weeks ago I picked up a 48"x72" 5 shelf rack that I am using to do some emmersed culturing Of the 5 shelves, 2 are almost full. For the lighting, I suspended t8 fixtures from the shelves. One fixture is a 4xt8 over the taller humidity domes, and the other is a 2 bulb fixture. When I do get around to setting up the 2 or 3 other shelves I will go with one more of each fixture.

Its been almost 3 weeks since I first set it up and the plants are doing amazing (most have only been in there a week). So far, the flora list includes Lindernia Rotundifolia, Nesaea Crass. Red, Limnophila Aromatica, HC, pogostemon helferi, flame moss, Ludwigia Rubin, bacopa myriophylloides, Ludwigia Brevipes, pogostemon erectus, hygro. siamensis, and ludwigia senegalensis.

I have placed a few orders for some new plants and I intend on putting some of them into emmersed conditions once they arrive. Others will go into some of the many tanks we have to see how they all do under different conditions.

Anyways, enjoy the pics and I hope to have more for you soon.
