    90x45x45cm - 2011 IAPLC entry #577 - The Unknown Valley

    Re: 90x45x45cm - The Unknown I have tried this plant Stu, with no success. It would show lots of growth, but just dissolve away. I blame my uber soft water, but maybe you will have more success. I believe pinching out new growth can keep it low. Dave.

    Saintly's 240L 'savannah dreaming' scape finished

    Tonys 'Peacocks Crypt' - The End

    Re: Tonsers 200L Optiwhite (now featuring hardscape !) When it comes to the hardscape, I have always found that it has been going around in my head a month or two before anything goes in the tank. Come the day when it goes in, it doesn`t take me long at all (less than 30 mins). This only...

    I have heard that it is considered a slow grower, but it is a real monster in my experience. It is a beautiful plant, though. Dave.
