Reading the packaging, the contents are composted bark, sphagnum peat moss, and pasteurized poultry litter. NPK is .10-.05-.05. Guaranteed analysis is the same as NPK. I sieved it with a 1/4" grid...

I never noticed any noise from my AC 30. Of course, I only used it for about 2 years.

You could listen to where the noise is coming from. I bet it is the motor, the impeller. A good cleaning of...

Well, I planted the crypt. I've seen both of the ones I have melt completely before. The other one survived the change to dirt so I'm hoping this one will do all right.

Can I cut some off the roots of a Cryptocorne?

I have something like a Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Green Gecko' that I need to plant in sand covering MGOCPM. Can I cut some off the roots so it will be easier to plant or will it melt if I do that? I...
