Weekly Friday night photo:


Idk why my wisteria is not growing upwards very much. Perhaps it prefers more medium light? It's putting off a bunch of side shoots trying to grow bushier, but it won't grow vertically. If It doesn't begin to grow vertically very much, I may look at trying something else there (back left corner), perhaps Myrio mattagrossense or something similar. Any thoughts? Suggestions?

love your tank rusty, impressive growth on some difficult stems (at least for me) to grow.

Thanks. Lots of CO2, plenty of Macros/Micros and plenty of light and circulation. Which stems do you have trouble with?

I've never had too much trouble with the pogostemon. It took it a while to convert from the emersed form as I received it to the submersed form. It tends to grow a good bit slower than some of the other stems. I don't have the other two you mentioned so I don't know much about them.

Wow! Very nice. I like the way you've placed your plants. The Harlequins are fabulous! They compliment the reds and orangey yellows you have in the plants. Great job!

Thanks. It's taken quite a while for me to get it to this point. Now I need to figure out when/where to trim everything so that it all grows out the right length at the same time. Lol. That's probably going to take a lot of trial and error.

Thank you. Can't wait to add the Myrio mattogrossense to it. It will be replacing the wisteria in the back left corner. The wisteria just wasn't growing the way I expected it to. It wants to grow outward, not upward, which makes it useless for the purpose I intended.
