Guttboy Jason,

It did but the stem was badly broken so I trimmed it off. No worries though I can tell they are loving it in my tank!

wellbiz Mike,

Kool 8) Did the"lilly pad" survive the trip? Look like the stem in the one pic, but I couldn't tell for sure.....

Guttboy Jason,

You got that right moved stuff around to put them in!


The plant on the left is Barclaya longifolia....I think the common name is orchid lily but not sure. This is one of my favorite plants.

Guttboy GO SOX! Well they pulled it off in a typical New England fashion .... down to the wire...I have no fingernails left!...LOL...

Anyhow I will be removing those Giant's and sending them to Wellbiz and Russ and anyone else who bites tonight or tomorrow. I am getting some lotus (loti? plural?) from Wellbiz and will be rearranging this week....

More pics to come! Ohh almost forgot getting some sunset hygro from GCA as well this week! man this tank is gonna be rockin soon!

Buck Man Mike I would love to have some stems of that hygro but my Angels would just shred it again... aint seen nuttin like that. :evil:

That barclaya is definately a beauty though, I think it looks nice mixed in with the large leaves of the hygro !

Guttboy 2La,

The Barc is doing AWESOME to say the least! I will try to put some photos in here today. The flower stalks run to the surface every few days or so. At the bottom there are tons of smaller leaf groups that are BEGGING to be sent to the surface. I got this plant from Roger Miller here in town and it has just taken off! The Giant Hygro stems are kinda blocking it here. Roger thinks that I should be able to propagate it once those little plantlets take off a bit more. It truly is a great plant!

2la Geez, I wish I'd been keeping tabs on this thread all this time. Mike, how's the barclaya doing? In my and other locals' experience, they promptly drop their leaves after flowering. Is it holding up okay? Green or red it is one of my favorite plants and one that doesn't get enough recognition as a centerpiece plant, IMO.

Guttboy buck,

I am thinking about putting perhaps a lotus or something over you want any Giant Hygro? Seriously I have that stuff growing like friggin weeds...I either sell it to LFS or chuck are more than welcome to it if ya like just let me know...I will have to chuck some here in the next week just to keep the light levels ok in the tank for the glosso marcel sent me.

Buck I love the giant hygro's Mike, they are doing great in there. I wish they had grown like that for me they are a beautiful plant....
In my case, what the angels didnt shred just faded away ! :cry:

Maybe consider a stem or 2 of that towards the right side for that leaf size balance that you and anonapersona were talkin bout...

Lookin good Mike and dont worry, at 88 degrees that ICH will be gone in no time...
10-05-2003 10:55 PM
