    Hey folks, I did this a while ago. Those who came to my BBQ will remember seeing it in a mess! It only really lasts for a couple of days. 10 days really but in it's prime at around day 6 and then starts to get really leggy and mine started to die off. TBF once it was over grown, i just left it :rolleyes:

    If i do it again, i'll use massive rocks since these ones got covered almost instantly.

    Oh, i grew it in Aquasoil Powder so that may have helped :lol:

    If you look up from that you'll usually see a family of three young ladies, good lookin' ones, so i can think of worse things to look at whilst washin' up ;)

    Cressgumi? :lol:

    It looks like an aerial view of "The Land That Time Forgot". Got any plastic dinosaurs you could lob in there, with a little bit of CO2 mist. Tyrranatastic!

    That's an interesting idea, for your next trick why not try growing Glosso in some old egg shells :lol:

    Cheers
