If I do a set Updike this can I bother u with a bunch of questions? For now I only have u never change the water, and do u put ferts in the water?

it was doing great. but then the setup was neglected, and over time, the water evaporated, and while most condensed back, some did escape and there was no standing water around the pots when i redid the tubs. so many of the plants were suffering from dehydration, and there were only 2 small sprigs of p. helferi left, which i planted in my 20 long.

Where do you keep your water level in relation to the surface of your substrate?
thank you.
i just did a massive trim on it (plants available in the SnS). didnt take before and after pics, but did notice 2 of my ludwigias flowering and took pics (will post later). the c. wendtii brown flowered again too, but the spathe was rotting - plus thats a common occurrence by now.

@marko@ repotted everything. the soil was old and gone inert, the pots overgrown, as trail mix pointed out.

what i started with:



what i got 6 hours later when done:



harvested for my shrimp tank in the making:



extras:


roots of var crypts and anubias, i only have room to sprout a third of these!

Trail_Mix And congrats on the flowers and spathes, that's always super exciting! If you do try and pollinate some Aroids, good luck to you, that would be awesome. I have a lot of respect for people who do that.
04-23-2013 02:47 AM
Trail_Mix It seems some of your Anubias and Crypts are over-growing their pots no? Do you plan on re-potting them in the future? I ask because mine are as well lol.
04-14-2013 02:39 AM
@marko@ the tubs are starting to run down slightly... they need new soil. theyll get it next month when im done with school.
but most of the species are still doing spectacular. the c. wendtii and a. frazeri are flowering again - the a. frazeri actually still has the old flower doing well and is sending up a second. and c. parkeri (one of the pots) is flowering too.
