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.

blackworm 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.

Cardinal Tetra 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!

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.
Thanks Devin. I saw about the IAS show. Unfortunately, I go back to school at the end of this month, so that kind of cuts out any out-of-state trips for me until next summer.

Out of curiosity, which of the flowering plants have you been most impressed with so far?
Thanks! My favorite plant this summer is probably my Neofinetia falcata orchid. It finally flowered for me and put on a show for a few weeks. The flowers smelled like Lily Of the Valley, but better.

I actually took all the plants outside and blasted them with the hose. Took care of the fungus and the slime algae that grows on some of the older leaves.

All my emersed aquatics are the same as yours: in full sun sitting in a few inches of water. I'm sure a few of them can be hardened off to drier conditions, but they're growing so well this way I don't want to change anything.

And I do still want some of that C. affinis. Unfortunately, my C. hudoroi melted down in the heatwave we had, so it's just starting to recover, but the runner I have for you is still poking it's head above the soil, so it should come back.

That's it for now. I'll have more pictures soon.

legomaniac89 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.

Gratiola brevefolia



Gratiola aurea



Lindernia "India" - these flowers are so tiny I can't get a decent shot of them



Limnophila "Sulawesi"





Hygrophila "Araguaia"



Ludwigia "Red" - originally from Manini



Nesaea triflora



Bacopa "Colorata"



I also had my Notocactus magnifica flower

legomaniac89 A few more from my emersed experiments

Polygonum "Kawagoneaum"



Gratiola brevefolia



Cardamine lyrata



Nesaea triflora
