Here's my emersed plant rack, I figured I would make a journal for it so i can ask any questions as they come up. It's nothing crazy yet just some odds and ends I put together to try and see what i could grow, mostly cuttings from my tanks and a few impulse buys I don't have room for lol.
So far I have:
Alternanthera reineckii 'purple'
All except the Hc just growing in leftover aquasoil and plain tap water. There's heating mats underneath to keep the temps up and i let them air out and give em a mist every couple days, pretty simple.
Here's the rack
One side is all cuttings that I'm used to growing
The other is all stag repens and A. reineckii 'purple', I've just got my first batch of cuttings from the intial store bought plants.
Instead of throwing out my Hc trimmings is just netted them and spread them across the soil, no planting just basically threw em in to see what would happen.
About a week and a bit later...
Here's all the initial plants/cuttings, quite a lot of growth in some already
Everything is growing well exept the rotala seems to be having trouble fully converting to its emersed form. I wanna try more with soil now that I am out of aquasoil, it seems like the plain aquasoil and water is missing something.
What do ya think??
