|Trail_Mix||Awesome thread and what a wonderful collection of plants! Super jealous! Any updates? I would love to see what you've been up to and what new plants you've aquired. Your plant interests are pretty much the same as mine. I love aquatic plants, Aroids, Nepenthes (& other CPs, especially sundews), succulents (I especially like Kalanchoes, Lithops, and various South African caudicaforms), air plants such as Tilandsia and Bromeliads, and orchids, although I have no orchids aside from two jewel orchids. I do plan on expanding my jewel orchid collection, but there's just too many plants and not enough time... or money, take your pick lol. If anybody has some cool air plants, or reasonably priced nepenthes or jewel orchids, (unfortunately I'm on a tight budget), please send me a pm.|

Honestly, I'm only posting to follow this thread.
Beatiful flowers, I'm a particular fan of your IGA rescue. Keep it up.

|hydrophyte||Hey man I just scored a Lasia spinosa after searching for a long time. I planted it into my 50G rip. I hope I don't kill it. What a cool plant it is. I am working on the pictures right now.|

PM me. I can send you several on Monday.
It's no problem. I can keep waiting. I'm moving in a week and I'll have to get readjusted so I'll have plenty to keep me preoccupied for a while. I hope all your crypts recover!

Beautiful! Do you have any emmersed aquatic plants that are just in a pot of soil? I'm wondering if I can grow any of my emmersed plants as houseplants. They're growing out of a tub of water in full sunlight outside.
BTW do you still want some of my Cryptocoryne affinis? I have lots of runners.

Wow! Those are some impressive pics!
Out of curiosity, which of the flowering plants have you been most impressed with so far?

Hey these plants and pictures are looking great! I wondered when this thread would be up again.
Hey did you see that the IAS show is in a little more than a month. I wish I could go but I don't have the funds . If there is any way you can you should go you will be amazed.

Ok time for a big update. I've been on a planted tank hiatus lately, but my emersed grow-out project is still going strong. I've only lost a couple species overall, and the rest are doing absolutely phenomenal. Things are growing and flowering much better than I expected, and I am very pleased with how some of these are doing.
Lindernia "India" - these flowers are so tiny I can't get a decent shot of them
Ludwigia "Red" - originally from Manini
I also had my Notocactus magnifica flower
In other news, during our 3 week 95+ degree heatwave we had here, my Crypts suffered. Even with being in the coolest part of the house, many of them still experienced a big meltdown. I don't think that I lost any completely, but they look pretty sad right now. The Anubias/Lagenandra tank is doing quite well though, other than a minor fungus outbreak.
That's it for now. I'll have more pictures soon.
