Much easier to have control when it's inside. Looking good

Bi-weekly update since some of you have asked for it!

The plants are doing great! The DHG has started to sprout runners and the bacopa has some new plants coming out of each node! This is such an exciting week for me! I literally check the tub every hour to see if anything as happened, just to take a glance at the plants and how great they're doing! Yesterday I added 2 new containers, one containing java moss and the other containing riccia. I also added some java fern and staurogyne repens babies into the stems container. I added another container without soil just to corral the floaters, as they were getting I to no-light areas.

I do the same thing, and once the stems start growing they take off. Looks good

Thanks, yeah I've seen lots of good growth since taking the tub inside. The stems are growing lots once the side shoots start to grow!

It's cool to see the stems bend and turn up towards the light

Yeah, one day they're all wilted and yellowing, and the next, they are green and going towards the light!
