That's a loaded question, NetCode. I think, primarily, I learned how to add another dimension to a set up by growing plants above the waterline as a riparium. Not that it hadn't been done before,...

There can be varying levels of success growing numerous species on driftwood, ranging from HC to bucephalandra to stem plants. Truthfully, many plants are capable of growing on driftwood, but it...

However, this...

That is Utricularia gibba. It will grow like crazy, and it is extremely difficult to get rid of. It is a carnivorous plant, and the dark spots you see are actually bladders fully of neat-microscopic...
