Anymore spathes? You were on a roll!!
Thanks! I haven't had any new spathes from new plants but the C. minima threw 2 more spathes since and the C. striolata seems to be flowering constantly, although some of the spathes are tiny.

Thanks in advance
They're C. weitzmani. They remind me of clown loaches too.

90p is a 90cm (roughly 36") long ADA tank. I think it's around 48 gallons. I'm running an Eheim 2217 on it. Don't recall the gph. I think a tank this size could benefit from another 2217. Never can have too much filtration!

Check out Inspire91's for sale thread over on APC. I think the E. opacus 'Goncalo' would be the closest to this one. The price depends on the size of the plant. I got these for more than what he's selling though. These things grow as slow as buces. Maybe slower? They throw babies painfully slow. Manini had a plant for more than 2 years before it threw a keiki.

These swords are so cool. They are hard like thick plastic and actually look like plastic! Definitely nothing like it out there.

Hahaha! I did tidy it up a bit, just didn't have time to snap some pics. Not really missing anything. It's a converted dog kennel (from the previous owner) with a shade cloth thrown over it. I'll see if I can snap some pics tomorrow.

So be ready to be disappointed at my make shift greenhouse. Please pardon the neglected plants. I've been devoting my time to my aquatic plants!





Not a greenhouse, but a lemon tree I use to hang orchids on.



Some random things blooming at the moment since I was snapping pics anyway.







sorry this one is blurry, Dendrobium anosmum aka 'honohono' from about two months ago.

Very nice! I am converting a former dog kennel into a makeshift aquaponics greenhouse.

Cool, Hey are those tables from Waimanalo feed? I've been looking for these. Idk why but I have a lemon tree in my yard. You gotta watch out for the thorns when you trim it. Great orchids too!

Yeah, these are the ones from Waimanalo feed. They were expensive but they are sturdy and I hope they will give me years of service. You can never tell though cause the uv from the sun deteriorates everything over time.

I know first hand about watching for thorns! Stepped on one a few years back and got infected. That was fun

Very cool steve. I saw the same benches at the greenhouse megastore. I might just pick up a few of those. Very nice orchids by the way. What is the humidity like in your area and how often do you water them?

I like the benches a lot. But they were expensive here. I bet you could get them a lot cheaper in Cali. The humidity usually hovers around 70-80%. It's not too bad, we get a lot of tradewinds.

Haven't updated this in a while and was downloading pics from my iphone so I said what the heck...

The 40 breeder a few months ago...








And this is what happens when you don't trim your stem tank for about 6 weeks....


I'm know why some people quit keeping stems....


Misc. orchids that bloomed recently. I dig green flowers.

Thanks Hung! Takes a lot of hard work to neglect your tank and turn it into a fine mess!
