    I guess I could make one, but many, "species walls" in a large unit. I'll just have to see what happens!

    excellent this work.

    OK for the substrate also

    you can use aquarium pump , but see on its user manual , the maxi level to have a good working.

    I have use this method from my mini wall with sucess.

    your mini wall = 90cm x 30cm no , but you can use the 2 positions in height 90 or 30cm

    Thank you kindly, Jeff.

    I have good news! The water reservior is constructed, the pump has been purchased, and It's about ready to hang from the roof!--The last major hurdle to get over I hope

    And if I ever make another one....I have some great ideas for it...due to building this one.

    The pinguicula wall is complete as planned. When I tested it, I noticed that the water reservior is too small (1 gallon currently) and needs to be at least 2 gallons due to the lag of recirculation. I also noticed that I need to improve the water collection system as not all of it makes it back to the reservior...even though the majority does.

    Will it grow pings? I think so. That said, a soiless growing environment seems to be ideal...as long as nutrients are added to the water I guess...at least I could have used media that drains better. I can always replace the media, however. Cat litter holds alot of water.

    Pics tomorrow!

    if the cat litter is too retentive of water, then remove.

    you can also spaced the watering with a dry periods and other wet.

    For my part I watering my mexican ping 1or 2 times in a month.

    this wall is very interesting for the temperate ping

    Ok, OK. Here are some pics

    1-2 times a month, jeff? Should I water them once a week, then? The only problem I have now is the timer I purchased waters a minimum of once a day for one minute. Too much, huh. How often do you think I should water? Should I change the media to aquatic plant soil?

    Jeff: The problem with me is San Diego is hot, dry, and not too cold in the winter. What pings would grow well? P. gigantea seems promising.

    I put some other non-gigantea pings up there...you can see I need a few more clones. Hopefully the seed I received will provide those...and more!
