|Rush3737||Thanks guys, if they come up I will follow your instructions. I typically do that with stems, but I guess considering these aren't your typical stem plants I didn't follow through with that.|

|Fishies_in_Philly||Yup, strip away about 3/4" of leaves off the bottom if the blyxa and it will stay. Then just leave it alone and don't touch if for like two weeks.|

|GitMoe||They can be a pain when it comes to planting. I remember the first time I had it they all kept floating and every day I'd have to replant like 10 stems. Drove me nuts. Eventually I figured out if you pull the leaves off the bottom 1.5" or so and plant that it's usually enough to keep it planted and allows a nice root structure to grow more quickly.|

|Rush3737||Don't be, yet. I'm having to try some creative things in planting them as my last attempt was a disaster. Either a fish was bad or their location sucked, but I couldn't get them to stay to save my life. Hopefully this time it goes better.|

I'm hoping a very large shipment of plants gets to me tomorrow from Florida...
Jealous of your Blyxa...

First picture you can see the Java Fern in the corner, Blyxa next to it, and some of the Ovalis next to the Tiger Lotus. Next pick has a good view of the Ovalis by the driftwood, and the HC.

We closed too, the only other time we closed was in anticipation of Sandy.
I thought the snow distribution was skewed this time around. Normally with the regular, west storms, the front hits the mountains and slows down so the Lehigh valley gets spared. And with the southeasters coming off the Atlantic, they lose most of their energy by the time they come to the valley. Not so this one. Although numbers were always different, consistently the Lehigh valley/stroudsburg areas were higher than Philly and the rest of NEPA.

|PeterN1986||I work in New Castle, DE and they called a snow day today. I haven't stepped outside yet and am considering if it's even worth digging out my car so that it doesn't ice over tonight.|

|Fishies_in_Philly||Wow you guys are getting pummeled. Where are you located rush?|

Pretty rough. Usually Philly and the Poconos get hid harder, but this year it's flipped. Even before this storm we were out of places to go with the snow. We're at a foot and counting right now I'd say. I'm even home from work for the first time this year, as generally my job requires me to be in come hell or high water, but there is no way I'm making it even 2 miles on the major roads right now with a non-4x4.
On the flip side, USPS claims my package is out for delivery.
