The tub is sitting on a east facing window receiving morning sunlight

Sorry to hijack your thread Len haha

No problem, it is so simple it's crazy, I have some smaller ones with crypts in them and they are doing better than my glass tank emersed setups, I got the idea from the zapin's style but I didn't see why you needed trays withing the container.

Check out my dwarf banana, this is as big as it gets. I like the tropical Asian look it adds to my apartment

Here is my Blood banana plant - musa zebrina sumantrana it gets 5-7' tall and I plan on putting it behind my terrarium once it gets bigger.

Yes it does, it will probably stay a little shorter since I'm growing it indoors though.

Looks like we are all nuts!
Years ago, whe we had over 2000 gallons of fish tanks in the basement, we had thes things bloom and fruit up in the house. We ran two dehumidifiers but the humidity was still very high.
Then we found mold on the exterior walls behind cabinets, etc. during a cold January. Water was dripping from our electrical conduits. Yikes! We did get the problem solved, but it was a nightmare. Everything was blooming -Anthurium, rare Dracaenas, Arisaemas, Amorphophallus and the list goes on.
Do we get more sensible as we mature. My wife says that is not the case with men.
Nice Musas!! Bill

I found this site about pollinating aroids. I hope it isnt too off topic, but I found it interesting.

Thanks Len

I see that you're going emersed UG and mosses on sphagnum. How often do you fertilize them?

This was probably answered already, but how many bulbs do you use on your racks (for each pair of humidity domes or 10 gallon tanks)?

Also, I see that your glass bottom in the 40 breeder is relatively clean, does the clay pots you use have solid bottoms (no holes for drainage, etc.) to prevent the AS Malay from escaping?
