i definitely need more bacopa. if i get it, i would consolidate the macrandras into one bush. but not sure where i would position things. what do you think?

I'm no good at envisioning things, bob, but I think it could work well. I'd say go for the package some nice plants there for a good price.

The flower pics are neat!

Figured I'd stop in and say hey before I hop on the Dreadmill.

haha! have fun on the dreadmill! my legs are one part of y body that i never worry about working out. the rest, not sure much. not that i work out anyways though

thanks, wish there was a way for you to smell the cattleya!

im really thinking about getting them. but im also working on a paintball co2 system. im gettting (as long as somebody didnt get it first) an ASA, regulator, and pressure gauge, for $30 shipped.

then i was going to get a co2 tank, i can get one at dicks or i can get one for 20$shipped, 20oz.

but maybe ill just get the regulater etc, and save up for the tank... i have $40-50 to spend. $40 from selling mulberry leaves and $10 from my pocket

so yeah. im torn!

Dreadmill went well. Ha, my legs are naturally strong. I'm not doing it to workout my legs really. I'm doing it to drop body fat percentage/ increase speed.

I would say to just go with the sketch and change things as you see fit. Atleast that's what I did.
I tend to change things up when I see them in person since its the only way I can visualize it.

thats a good idea. i just want to see if there are any plaws or improvements to be made now, so its less moving things around. im sure ill change stuff up though.

i cant wait for the stuff to get here!
