    While sending out the NASC items this morning I planted a few more leaves in the sponge things. Here they are with a photo of the "raft" floating. With only one side planted the "raft" is leaning into the water more than usual. But it should convey the idea.

    Here is the first sponge plug we pulled out, unless I find a downside soon I may be reworking the way I do leaf pulls. So much quicker and easier than an other method I've tried and packing them to mail was so much easier. I've transplanted my first one directly into a peat/turface mix this morning, just buried the sponge into the mix.

    Very cool guys. If I had cuttings I would try that.

    How did you remove the plug from the foam? Did it just lift out?

    I just used the flat end of a pencil and pushed it out. The foam block is a cone shape, larger at the top and smaller at the bottom.

    Wow awesome idea. How far away from the lights are the cuttings? I think my problem is that I give mine too much T-5 light. Also, where did you get the styrofoam trays?

    They are about 8-10" from a single T5 (old bulb) so not a lot of light. I've had the trays for a while so I'm not sure where they came from, I know a few of the seed companies sell these things. I've been looking for a larger sponge that I could try to grow a Ceph in long term and see what happens.
