    Interesting. It looks like I should also go for an oversized pot/tray. Is this correct. Thanks

    Yea, you want enough of the water to be in the tray so the pump can function properly. also, make sure that the darlintonia pot is NOT sitting in the tray, just barely touching. you can elevate it using a few stones or bottle caps, i guess.

    Bob, try www.Drsfosterandsmith.com. I get a lot of my aquarium stuff there...I'm sure they have a smaller pump. (In fact I'm positive they do.)

    If you want, you can just get the 50 gph pump and cut off a couple of the intake pinion needles/paddles to lower the power of the flow. A lot of people do this in the reefing community.

    Pet, in your design, why not have the pump on the bottom in the water tray and a pipe leading up to the plant with a 90 degree pvc elbow at the end? That would probably be a lot easier to set up and and might even look a little better.

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    I don't think a 13 year old could have a credit card. :3 Or paypal.

    I wouldn't buy all that fancy schmancy stuff just yet, just test your conditions out. For a while I was scared of Darlintonia until someone gave me one, and I just tried it out in my bog, and it's growing fine.

    I would just test and see before buying all this stuff.
