thanks for this info guys, I'll definitely try this once my new hoyas etc start shooting out some new growth
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 shrimpLook at all that vegetation in there!
