Must be a nice walk through that place. Im surprised there are not more crypt or sword pots , they are supposed to be very popular in emersed growth. Did he let you tour the entire place or were there any places that were not ready to be seen. Plant nurseries around here have the greenhouses you can go into and then there are always at least a couple of them in the back that were off-limits with plants not ready yet.

Great photos...thanks for posting

yes it's a lot faster to grow plants emersed.

i know the owner pretty well and he let me go through all the places he have. he did mentioned that he have difficulties planting crypts.

i should have mentioned that the farm is a traditional one not with high-tech gadget and laboratory testing. he just made the cement boxes, filled them with soil and sand, flooded them with well water, then planted aquatic plants there. he told me many plants were dead at first and he replaced them with new ones that will eventually grow in emersed form.

the farm also have a few pond with the same well water and IIRC these are the plants he can't grow submerged there :
- most rotala species
- most cabomba pecies
- proserpinaca palustris

if anyone know the requirement similarity of these plant's please let me know. lighting is about 70% shaded sun, no ferts, and i haven't been able to test the water yet.

Thanks for posting. Nice setup that person has.

Do you mean that he has problems growing crypts? My guess would be the water's too soft.
