Greenfingers is the man for this one, from what I can see I'd say your on the right path, wabi can take a month or 2 to get going, mine took a good 8 weeks before it started to grow properly, other factors such as room temperature can play a big part in plant health, remove the yellow and...
Thanks green finger :) it's not even on par with yours but you've give me something to aim for :)
That wall unit is bloody amazing, brains ticking now :)
and post away mate, that's what makes a good thread :)
Hc is definitely smaller but mc just grows so well its a tough choice really, the plan when I'm due a trim will be the same as when I did the moss, trim everything you want trimming then a temp flood it's just so much easier and cleaner :)
How's that for timing lol, its really starting to kick off now :) I'm not sure if it's the extra heat now the central heating on more or if it's that I've just left it alone and not kept moving things ever 5 mins :)
A little update, I think I've finally found the sweet spot the anubias has thrown up 5 new leaves in the last 2 weeks and the Bacopa australis is going crazy so much so I'm thinking of removing it as it's growing over the he and monticarlo at an amazing rate
Sorry lads forgot all about updating :( ive added some hair grass, a tiny bit of hc and a few stems of Ammania In all honesty it looks a bit of a mess but its a good experimenting tank I will get some pics up asap :)
Its a possibility mate, not quite what I was after im more thinking along the lines of Cyperus alternifolius
Or this one which is just about perfect but I cant find it available over here :(
Cyperus Dwarf Umbrella Sedge | Riparium Supply
Im chasing my tail trying to find a Cyperus thats suitable for riparium use that is small ive found info stating there are species as small as 5cm but I cant find any names for these
Does anyone know of any that stay smaller than approx 15 inch and will tolerate low humidity riparium conditions...
I didnt even consider it falling though :( for planters im not sure yet, ive looked for shower caddy type but cant find anything locally and the ones ive found on ebay are really expensive so ive considered using tupaware or similar, I did plan on using mesh screen inside the planters as shown...
Apologies if this is in the wrong section
Im looking at getting my bits sorted for my upcoming riparium project and cant decide on what media to use in the planters am I better off using akadama or Hydroton Clay Pebbles ? Or is it as I suspect the same thing with a different name ?
While sitting in the hotel last night I got bored and started searching around the net for new interesting things to pass the time and although I knew these were popular I never looked into them, well lets just say ripariums have perked my interest but im having trouble finding detailed pictures...
A bit up and down, the hc didnt do well and disappeared over a week, one of the alternanthera reineckii melted but the other 2 are doing really well, the moss is growing brilliantly and ive added some Echinodorus Tenellus which seems to be doing well, im working away until Thursday so I will get...
It can be a nightmare to find a bowl you want I looked everywhere before I found this one, it was expensive but worth it for the size,
The light is 4watt according to the box but its really bright, hurts your eyes pretty quickly, ive got it on for 12 hours at the moment and it seems to be...
Thanks Ian :)
Thanks Tim, it was a led desk lamp that I got from aldi for £4 I took the light bar of the top and mounted it to the stand I made there 8000k white leds, I wasnt sure if it would work but for the money I couldnt not try it :) heres a couple of pics of it, not great but I hope you...
Yes this is tropica 1-2 grow I used half a pot in this and the other half in my dennerle cube I also used tropica 1-2 grow Ammania sp. 'Bonsai' which I wish I had used some in the wabi. The tropica 1-2 grow is absolutely superb you get quite a lot in a pot and its growing brilliantly and I think...
After far to long ive finally managed to get this planted :)
Ive just this second finished it hench the water on the glass
Plants are xmas moss, Fissidens, Alternanthera reineckii mini and Hemianthus callitrichoides
Ive got no idea at all if this is going to work but its all good fun and...
Lol I didnt even think about that
This is going to be probably more a case of learning what works and what doesnt, when it comes to emersed growing I know nothing. So ive got a few plants in mind so fingers crossed I can achieve something with it :)
