    The capillaris was one plant when I potted it, but that was a long time ago so it might have sprounted off another. Today was the first day in over 4 months that I have removed it from its corner, it gets all its water from the tray method.

    There are very long threads about what exactly ADA aquasoil is in the aquatic forums, all I recall is that it is clay based with some peat and tons of other things. You can get some ADA stuff in the states, if you google it, it comes right up. We picked up alot of ADA stuff when we were in Japan years ago.

    Iirc, the D. capillaris has gone crestate - fairly weird phenomenon.

    On the Aquasoil - I remember that you were growing U. nephrophylla in the stuff. How deep do you have it & do you crush the top layer or leave it in the small spheres? Water level just below the surface & allowed to drop between waterings?

    I was thinking about sowing some U. uniflora seed on crushed Aquasoil.
    All the best,

    The container of U. nephrophylla in the Orchioides thread is planted in Aquasoil, I fill up the undrained container once a week, from the about I add I would say it evaporates 3/4 of the water by then. I don't crush anything up, the stuff is very easily crushed and I'm sure alot of it ends up crushed.

    I soaked some Aquasoil then drained it so it was moist but not wet and put it in a closed vial with half of the U. uniflora seeds you send me. So far nothing is growing from any of those seeds.
