yup. they are all in miracle grow (various kinds, depending what i had at the time, so far ive used regular, organic, cactus and citrus, and orchid). no regular fertz. every month or two i squirt some miracle grow liquid fertilizer into the water between the pots when i top off.
Have you noticed any different growth from different soils?

cant say. i didnt keep track of which one i used for which plant. plus for most plants i only have 1 pot, so no control group.
but i think the difference in terms on nutrients is negligible since the soil is water logged and been sitting the same pool of water leaching nutrients for months.
the only really difference i suspect would be particle size. the orchid mix has large particles for drainage, and fine root plants might not like it as much, but the HC in it still grows very nice (this one i know has the orchid mix, since its so noticeable).

i think its a very unique looking flower. and now that my ariods seem to be flowering left and right, im starting to think about trying to pollinate them.

Subscribed! There's a lot of slobber and drool all over my keyboard at the moment.

the tubs are starting to run down slightly... they need new soil. theyll get it next month when im done with school.
but most of the species are still doing spectacular. the c. wendtii and a. frazeri are flowering again - the a. frazeri actually still has the old flower doing well and is sending up a second. and c. parkeri (one of the pots) is flowering too.

It seems some of your Anubias and Crypts are over-growing their pots no? Do you plan on re-potting them in the future? I ask because mine are as well lol.

And congrats on the flowers and spathes, that's always super exciting! If you do try and pollinate some Aroids, good luck to you, that would be awesome. I have a lot of respect for people who do that.
