Look at all that vegetation in there!
no small thanks to you! All the plants you sent me except maybe one are doing great. The palm is sending out a sucker. I am really happy with the palm, the pepperi love it because it's a great crash-pad and given now it is starting to edge over the water, I think it will be the key to kicking my black algae problem on my brazilian micro sword thanks to the shade offered. and the aglaonema, with its faintly blue leaves, looks just stunning contrasted with the lime-green giant anubias I got elsewhere. I didn't take a pic, but the arial roots are just sick, hopefully in a few months time they'll be ropes running from the top down into the water to be cleaned by shrimp ;)

I'm really liking how I have a bright light verdant jungle up top and a low light forest floor on the bottom (which is great for my beloved B. pavonina)

Oh I'm real happy to hear that your Pinanga disticha palm is suckering. I hoped that it would do that. I still have a specimen here, but it is still too small to sucker. That is a real good plant for larger vivs and it looks just awesome.

This sure is cool setup and it grew in really nice.

Sorry to bump my own thread, but does any one know if the moss up top looks like its mostly spaghnum? Just wondering if this stuff seems to out compete other mosses when there is high light and lots of misting compared to what are down below with less light (which are riccia, christmas, and an unidentified tentacular species)

Looking great!

In your last picture posted, the moss in the background looks a bit like java from what I can see, while the moss...ball on the wood outcropping on the left does look a little bit like spag. If you need some java moss, I've got a 2.5g tank full of the stuff. It has snails so it'd be best if it went through a bit of alone time terrestrially.

Have been away from DB for a while, school's been crazy and I was gone for 6 months. In the mean time, I lost the pepperi while I was gone, but have an awesome group of the borja ridge now.

Here are a few pics:

Hey that's pretty cool. That Begonia flowering is really neat. That little Pinanga palm that I sent is still growing. Has it grown any suckering plants around that base? What is that larger aroidy thing on the right-hand side?

Yea, the pinanga has one sucker going and another one coming. I keep it trimmed pretty short, so I think that helps. I think what you're referring to is a cutting of my anubias hastifolia that I cut from an elevated branch that is part of the drip wall. It was just way too big so I stuck it in the water, hopefully it takes. Most of the plants I got from you are doing great in there (and elsewhere)
