I was watching YouTube videos earlier with crypts with moss on the substrate In the pots. Looks awesome!!! And apparently moss acts as a natural insecticide

I noticed this morning when I flipped on the lights that one of the spathes appeared to be open toward the top. I didn't have a chance to get a closer look, as I've got a my last bio test today(before my finals mon & tues). I will take a closer look this evenings nice I've finished up! I can't wait to be done with this summer semester! So much stress will be gone soon!!

Well, neither spathe has opened. They a both larger then the last time I really checked on them. I will keep checking! Late last night(wide awake about 4am) was really the first chance I've had to sit down and check out the new growth on my emersed tanks in at least a week or two! I am really pleased with how things are looking! Lots of new crypt growth!

Earlier in the week I noticed the Anubias nana in the 20L was beginning to produce a bloom!

Now, time for tons of pictures!

That Anubias is huge. I'm looking to add some different Anubias varieties to my set up as well

Damn! I totally meant to send you a couple rhizome trimmings! This was a piece that broke off the large one in my 55 last time I rearranged it. The parent plant is massive yet can't be seen unless you start digging through all the java fern! I just realized that I listed this plant incorrectly this morning, it's not a nana but an A. barteri var. barteri. I originally purchased this at my lfs as a coffeefolia but figured out it wasn't. I've gotta pull some java fern for a trade in a bit, I'll try to snap a couple pictures of the big one!

This plant runs directly across the back of my 55, covering almost the entire right half!

It transitioned well. The piece I tossed in the emersed tank only had a few small leaves at the time!

It's done alright, I don't think it likes the times when the tank's humidity level drops between mistings.

The A. barteri var. barteri inflorescence has finally opened fully!





There are also a ton of flowers on the Bacopa caroliniana.
