Thanks for the "tip", John. I can't help it, when it's as an expensive hobby as this you can't help but want to make sure you get the right plants and in the right amounts for the scape the first time, every time.
Plants finally ordered! That'll make Mr. Starkey happy!
4 pots Eleocharis Acicularis
3 pots Hemianthus callitrichoides
3 pots Pogostemon Helferi
4 pots cyprus helfri
5 pots Rotala sp. ''Green''
3 pots of Cryptocoryne beckettii
3 pots of Cryptocoryne Nevellii
I wish crypts weren't so hard to pick, I just hope these give a nice variation in colours, petchi being dark green/purple and nevelli light green. I just hope they're not too big once grown in, I'll be bitter if they are.
So yeah! Should be planted by the end of the week!
Anyone got a bit of lilly going spare they fancy sending my way? I only need a little bit? Anyone please?
Cheers Dan, I've got some needle leaved fern and some nans petite It's just I don't know if I should add to the wood or not. I'm not like you guys I can't see what a scape will mature into.
I've got plenty of rotalla I reckon, 5 pots should be loads. Hc and hairgrass are pretty quick growing too. I'll be doing every day waterchanges and half dosing as ceg recommended so I shouldn't run into any troubles, or at least I hope.
Mmm, John I might have to. I've got the filter sitting cycled and ready I'm waiting for the rest of my plants and a new stand to arrive before I fill up though, I don't really fancy filling up only to drain it again to plant some hairgrass and to shift it to it's new resting place.
