    Thanks guys,
    You know what, never had any probs using Lucky bamboo.
    Get it from the 99p shop and it does great.
    Sends out tons of roots and healthy new shoots sprout from under water.

    No room in this new scape.


    Devuk, The Huge wood i got off you, means total rescape and then to plant the emersed palnts we got yesterday.

    Having the leaves out of the water is the key ;)

    But its such a nice medium sized bit of wood :) I might ask to pinch a few rhizomes of that narrow fern back at some point, but not yet :)

    Can't wait to see what you do with it!

    The bogwood with all the narrow leaf java fern, is still being cleaned by the mollies - They are doing a great job munching the hair algae.

    So i planted the hair grass and i forgot the name of the dragon looking plant

    Don't forget to cut it right back :) Almost to substrate level so I'm told...

    Why cut it back? I've just planted some too, and cut some but not all of it.

    To spur on new growth, and also to try to avoid algae. Mostly, its because we both bought this hair grass from a garden centre (see my rio 180 post) and its immersed growth, so it will probably die off a bit while it changes to submersed.
