    heli tank pics

    Man oh man, my Heli tank is so full that it's over full - I had to put plants inside on a rack in the meantime until I get another tank because I'm still waiting on some AW plants. Planted in 1perlite : 1lfs, sitting in 1/2" water with misting 2X a day (~6am and 6pm by hand), outside on my balcony. White square pots are 3". Here's a pic:


    from top left going down the round pots - pulchella Akopan, heterodoxa, heterodoxa minor
    top row small white pots from the left - heteroXminor, heteroXminor
    second row down from left - pulchella Akopan, pulchella Akopan, heteroXminor
    third row down from left - pulchella Akopan, pulchella Akopan, nutans
    bottom row from the left - pulchella Akopan, minor, nutans

    Some of those small pulchella pots are just pulled-off pitchers, or pitcher clusters, that came w/out roots so hopefully most will get settled in and grow, but I expect some to die.

    And here's a pulchella Akopan in its own pot inside:

    The one inside is very similar to the way I had a Tequila,,, only I poked a hole at the top to allow for heat to escape.

    I'm workin' on it ...I usually use tall deli containers right side up, so the heli has water to sit in, walls, and no top, but I've been a bit busy to go hunting for a properly tall one for the 3" and 4" pots. It still has air gaps for air exchange by sitting on the soil like that, but it's definitely not a permanent fix.

    I got a heteroXionassi from Wistuba that I'm not sure will even make it - I should have super-bagged-and-let-float-in-water it looks so crispy. His helis are super soft...hopefully I can recover it.

    ...and thanks, working on catching 'em all! (like the pokemons they are )
