I use shultz's houseplant fertilizer at about 1/4 to 1/2 the concentration it calls for. It comes with a dropper in the lid and I use one squirt pet liter of water

My first Crypt spathe has popped up on my C Cordata "Thailand". Hopfully this is a sign of more to come.

I'm actually only giving it rootmed caps, it's in a 10g with a heater ad the standard glass aquarium lid. I add a capful of tetra blackwater extract every couple weeks and this yank seems to be doing better than my 40 breeder I have an albida, Cordata "rosanvig", zukali and yellow ring that are all showing great growth. I want to get some other blackwater species to put in there and see how they do.

Very nice dude. Is this the cordata saimensis or thailand? Both look very similiar in appearance as far as color and shape is concerned. But the saimensis has a smaller spathe than the thailand.

I took a day off today to finish my plumbing. You have a lot more plants for your emersed setup by the end of next week.

It's the Thailand I got from you about 6 months ago the C bukit ibam "yellow ring" I got from you a few months ago is in the same tank and doing good as well it has three new plants all the same size as the original, I'm hoping it sends a spathe this summer as well. I'm looking forward to adding some nice new plants, I'll be in San Fran till Thursday then headed home to some nice crypts and buces.

Piptospatha ridleyi

Philodendron "Burle Marx"

Philodendron "hope"

Epipremnum pinnatum this boy gets really big and has neat pinnate leaves

Great job on the lagenandra bloom. Mine was about to open but it melted before it was able to fully bloom

Nice finds

Some of the simplest setups produce the best results, this just has about 1"-1.5" of topsoil in the bottom and nothing else, I mist it every few weeks and add osmocote capsules every couple months the plants grow like weeds in here and all I have is a couple cfl bulbs over it. I'll be posting a FS add sometime this upcoming week from it

It has
Alternanthera reinekii
H pinnatifida
H corymbosa stricta
Staurogyne sp. "purple"

I noticed the results of your setup and stole your idea. I started my own setup a few weeks ago when i had some schismattoglottis that had no where to go. Results are very satisfying given that they received absolutely no attention. They're planted in aqua soil and I do not mist or dose. There are only moist sphagnum moss to maintain some humidity

The tub is sitting on a east facing window receiving morning sunlight

Sorry to hijack your thread Len haha
