I only remove the tops from the containers every couple days to check on them, and for waterings.

Been growing a lot of emersed plants in various tanks on my back porch for about 2 years now, here are some recent shots.

All of your plants are awesome! Such a variety. Love the aquaponics for the veggies too!

I am VERY interested in the aquaponics. Care to elaborate on the setup? And what kind of fish do you have in there? Pets or future dinner?

Sure. We have a 55 gallon drum holding our Tilapia (future dinner) and 3 media grow beds (lava rock, river rock, and expanded clay) and 1 styrofoam raft. System is thriving in the summer right now, plants/fish/bacteria are doing great. Plus I do my planted tank emersed waterings with the aquaponics water, plants love it!

That's what I'm starting myself. I'd like to start with crypts and Anubias. I already have a small set up with various clippings from my tanks but I want specific emersed fr those two type plants

Yeah, good luck with it! I've had better luck with emersed crypts than anubias. It appears the crypts will melt/spawn (but keep growing) while the anubias sometimes slow down to a crawl sometimes.

Just remember: Lots of spray, lots of light, lots of air!

I've added a couple more tanks to the back porch, the summer brings the perfect amount of sunlight back here:



Roughly 16 different types of Crypts in this 10 gallon:


Christmas Moss:


Four Leaf Clover:


Various Stems:


Rosemary, Lemongrass, and a carpet of Hydrocotyle sp Japan:


Aquaponics Okra standing large and tall:

Various floaters added.
Plus more tanks are making their way to the back porch.
Store credit at Petsmart has me asking, when are they going to do their next dollar per gallon sale?
