nocturnalkid - . The AS i'm using is new, so no worries there. I didn't realize the leaves would die off initially, good to know. thanks for the info!
CL - Thanks for the response. i was hoping you'd post a reply... your emersed plants always turn out looking great, and i know you're currently growing belem.
One last question i forgot to add... I'll be using plastic wrap, is it best to completely seal it tight, or leave a small gap for air exchange?
