    Great growth Menky, love to see this.. :clap: Really wonderful.. :) What you write about certain plants growing somehow to long and leggy is due to light issue. I do not know the English botanical term for it but fortunately you are dutch as i am.. And we call it "Fileren" usually when botanists use this term to refer to seedlings, growing leggy and fall over laying flat on the substrate. I guess the English term simply will be leggy growth, dunno. This happens when seeding plants to early in the year when there is not enough light hours and intensity during the day. This also goes for young pants which come in vitro or on rock wool. When plants do that, than this particular sp. is extra light demanding and it's best to give them some extra artificial light. It's December and the days can't be much shorter now. :)

    Yes, agree to that. It's all a matter of light.
    I've pruned for example the Rotala and put it under a strong artificial light and I've seen that is growing more 'compact'.(y)

    But I'll have a nice story to tell:
    I had to stop using this artificial light...
    Because when I put on the light switch I've seen aeroplanes adapting their flight plans. Even got a phone call by the coast guard;
    they say that ships were confused by this artificial lighthouse... :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    This is what 2418 Lumen can do... That's caused overkill :LOL::LOL: The plants were all crispy...:whistle::whistle::whistle:

    I think you might just call it a slight over kill.

    Did you power meter take off as it would have been spinning so fast.

    Never give it that much thought do.
    I'll give some to my father: for in his little aquarium.
    For now I'll have some placed in the living room like an real Wabi Kusa :D
    and the rest of them I'll throw them away I'll guess...

    Hi Menky, No don't throw them away :( Place them in a larger bowl and add some other plants they will make a great looking W-K :)

    For some reason I have lost a reply.

    Ask Roy what to do with then, his answer would be find/create a space.
