    suite

    very nice

    but all the pot are in water ?

    for the mexican ( actually in dormancy) they must be dry , otherwise attention to the rot .

    medusinae are a gypsum specie , it is difficult to keep alive the keikis but I hope that you could do it

    All pots are in some water, im using all mineral, and I only have one that is dormant.. Its actually been in water with the rest of them for the entire time its been dormant and its still fine. I suspect now that its in all mineral there's even less of a change of it rotting or anything.

    I've read that medusina likes gypsum but I was unable to find any. It was grown by its original propagator in a mostly peat/perlite mix, and they grow like champs for him. Just goes to show that they can be adaptable. Its now in an all mineral mix with iron. So here's to hoping everything survives and adapts.

    The stuff im using now isnt the same as the sand I showed you originally.. This is the newer stuff.. I bought a 100lb bag of it at a quarry/rock/sand supply place. You know the kind with huge piles of rock, gravel and sand that semis pull up to? lol. The owner of my favorite plant shop pointed me their way. Its an 8 grit industrial quartz, by the company name "Unimin". You'll need to call around to industrial type places, masonry, construction supplies, etc.

    Here's a post from someone using "granusil" silica sand, which is a different variety Unimin produces, would also work well for CPs I think? http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/su...lorquartz.html

    Found a photo of the bag online, looks like this.. not the same grit/mesh obviously but the bag design is the same.
