Nice Northern wind Thats him! He had about 9 other birds with him, all females it seemed. They flew directly in front of the boat. Ive never seen a turkey fly like that.

Thank you! The gardens are local to Gainesville called Kanapaha Gardens.

I have tons more photos. The place takes a few hours to get through if your like me. I look at everything that grows and moves

No Im always afraid to pick anything. I have a Permit to collect from the the Florida Department of Agriculture. At Least that's what I thinks its called?

Maybe I should try and use this sometime


Glenn,
You might think this is strange, but I think about your Ebb N Flow setup almost everyday! I hope to have something setup by the end of summer.

I hope to get a nice size greenhouse to house a good sized system

Reminds me of our boat trips to Silver Springs when we lived in FL. It was my favorite outing . We'd put in at Lake Eustis, go through the locks and end up in Silver Springs. So much fun!

LOL, thats great! My next one will be alot bigger and setup as more of a table next time. Thee 75 gallon was nice to experiment, but once those trays are in there, its tight moving. Plus, the planting footprint is smaller than you think in those trays.

With a greenhouse, you should shoot for a setup like this (Minus the flannel shirt and bad haircut)or like this (look at some of the photos in the beginning for ideas).


Too many plants, too many species, not enough room.

I got the okay from the wife The pictures you linked are exactly what I plan to do, except for the haircut and flannel shirt thing. But! his setup is what I like.

I noticed that even though they are housed, they still cover them up with plastic. I don't think that would be necessary if you had your humidity levels on a controller of some kind.
Or, is growing emersed crypt more difficult than other aquatic species on a larger scale?
Ive had good luck growing a few and have even produced spathes. But nothing fancy.

I was thinking something like this.. http://www.greenhouses.com/
Would this work?
