Hi Guys

Just made my first viv 2 weeks ago, hoping to get a couple of leuc's in a month or two when the plants have really settled in (so if anyone in the UK East Anglia region got any for sale please message me).

Clay pellet base, hydrofleece, sphag moss, coco fibre, then more moss.

Plants: 1 x mini phalanopsis, jewel orchid, 1 x ? fern, 1 x mini Asplenium fern, 1 x red fittonia, 1 x misc leafy plant, riccia, java moss, 1 x Pinguicula

I am building a small water feature in one corner that is going to be finished this weekend.

I had a lot of fun building it can;t wait to get some frogs in there :)

I am new to PDFs but bought lots of books and been reading this forum like mad.

best wishes
Rob

PS. If anyone knows of any good breeder in East Anglia give me a shout with their details

that phal will quickly rot. it looks like its planted in the substrate and it needs to be mounted to do well
Thanks for the tip, It not actually planted in the substrate, instead its roots are surrounded by sphag moss, I've been growing this phal in a pot of pretty wet moss for about 6 months and it seems ok, but I'll keep and eye on it and if it looks like its starting to rot I'll take it out quick.

Thanks
Rob
