    Hi All, one new W-K done in a Chinese soup spoon :friendly_wink:
    The other photo is of a lump of rotting wood i found on a walk. It looks like a African tribal mask.After soaking and time to see if there is any mould growth on the wood i will plant up.I am looking forward to see how it looks.

    So am keeping some old and some new W-K in a old tank 36"x18x18 with a 30w 6500k garden floodlight over the top.The plants are growing slowly at this point but looking good.

    A couple of photos,

    My biggest concerns are the hot humid summer days plants drying out inside and burning outside.

    To give you an idea if you leave a long hose in the sun when you turn it on it can give you a slight burn the water is so hot.

    You never water the plants straight away as it will burn them.

    I'm impressed by the evolution!

    Have you put an anubia? The plant in the center of the first photo from these days seems to be one, but I'm not sure! :confused:

    Have you trimmed the "mop top" yet?

    Other than that it looks very good.

    Roy is that usual for the HC to do that and do you know the reason other than the trimming to cause it to die?
