Spare Plants for Parts


OK, my wife thinks I'm crazy! And she's right! But, I had a spare 10g sitting around and a bunch of extra clippings that I thought it would be cool to have a "spare parts" tank. I'm misting them twice a day using distilled water. I even ordered some worm feeders (still waiting for them) to fill with extra plants to hang inside the tank to make use of the space. Kinda cool just watching how things grow in there.
Here's what I have in there so far:

Light

1 Clamp on 20W 6700Kv bulb on for 16 hrs a day

Spare Plant Parts

Staurogyne Repens Ultricularia Graminifolia Fissiden Fontanus Fissiden Splachnobryoides Hygrophila sp. Tiger Hemianthus Callitricoides Ludwigia Repens Arcuata Ludwigia Red Drosera Spatulata
Pogostemo Helferi

Thanks for looking!
