    dang. How'd you get the rock to cover itself with moss? Did it just happen? Pretty cool..
    The cephs are drool-tastic. Think I may have to replace my T8's with another T5HO fixture. The neps are hogging the big one.

    Thanks mass, the moss came naturally (along with about 100 baby spiders after a few short days). The rocks were taken from a quarry and must have had tons of spores. Its tufa rock which is very porrus. I just went to link his site but it seems to be down as it asked my for username and password. I always leave about 1/2" of water in the bottom and it soaks it right up.

    Beautiful plants! I especially love the mulu x lowii. . . Beautiful colours and pitcher shape.

    Your plants always amaze me.
