150EH I also wanted to ask how the filter with the UV light is holding up?

I got an Oxygen buzz watching the video, I don't think you can fit another plant in the room. It looks very nice and I like the way your blinders work on the lights, they give the tank a nice glow.

Wow, that is a good price on lighting, and they had a nice range of the kelvin scale too.
It definitely looks like AP.com substrate IME.

Sure thing.

Air Plants - Concolor, Bergeri, Aeranthos Purple, Vernicosa, Fuchsil Gracillis and a Montana Clump (clump is not mounted on the cork).

Pothos - Most of the vine you see is from a potted plant on the shelf above. I am also growing clippings out of the tank. I hope to fill the entire area with Pothos and Ivey (eventually).


Emersed Potted Plants - Most are planted in aquariumplant.com substrate. I add a fert tablet in each one.

Pot 1 - Ivy and Spider Plant - I am trying Ivy so I can grow it up the wall and to the cork. Growth is slow. I added the spider plant clipping (from potted mother plant) because the success I had with another.
The spiky plant is the Montana Clump. Its not in the pot, but just placed behind it.


Pot 2 - Dracaena Ribbon Plantand Mondo Grass. This is the first pot I setup. Growth is slow, but I have decided I prefer it that way. There is also a spider plant clipping that I put in there as a test. I didn't think it would grow, but it is actually starting to take off.


Pots 3-4-5 (left to right). Dracenia (multi color) took its time to decide what it wanted to do. Much of it died off the first 6 weeks or so and I thought it would slowly disintegrate. Now its starting to get new growth.

Peace Lilly - This is a new plant. My old one got too tall and the leaves were getting burt by the halides. The roots also became very compacted and was stretching out the pot. This is another plant that decided to take its time as far as letting me know id it was going to live. Much of it died off at first, but then it started growing new leaves. Unfortunately it only grew one flower while in the tank.

Lucky Bamboo and Pothos Clippings - This isn't a permanent addition to the tank. I just have the Bamboo in there because it was extra and I didnt want to toss it out. The Pothos clippings will be moved to help fill in the other growth.
