Re: saintly's son try's his hand

goodness, Marsilea hirsuta grows fast doesn't it?....i planted it in 1 inch long stalks, just like oliver knott does, and already i've got new 1 inch long stems with leaves opening up. i've used this to add accent to areas and is one of many new plants for me, so exciting time s for me at least.

1 ludwigia species is already near broke the surface, so it's trim time already :lol:

i've also got runners of tennellus, the quickest i've ever had them in fact

Re: saintly's son try's his hand

well, i've added the shrimp. there are 10 in all. one is huge and i found that the others like to take a ride. they also clean him/her. see the pic.

also the other pic is of the pearling amd the Marsilea hirsuta. the shoot you see has grown in 4 days.

thanks for at least looking :D no flash just yet.
