    Is that this post with all the missing images: http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...ght=petiolaris

    How warm are you keeping them with the aquarium heaters there's no actual temp discussed Just "warm".

    Is there supposed to be a temp differential at night?

    Are these plants from A.S.? I know they sell the flats of 72.

    Yeah that would be my post. My photobucket got scrambled and I never got around to reuping all the pics. Plus they were out of date anyways. Now it is just a 10G set normally with a plexi top over it.

    I set the heaters to 86 or higher. And they were on the timer with the lights.

    The original source was not A.S. but based on Crystals description that is the direct source of yours.

    I keep my few woolies directly under T5 lighting for the heat. I have read that up to 110F is nothing for them. Mine don't stay quite that warm though. I would say anything from 80F and up is good. Mine drop down to room temperature at night, around 78F. I don't do anything for humidity. I used to worry about it, but not anymore. I grow all of mine in a sand/peat mix. I use at least 50% sand. I'll see about taking a picture later.

    I wasn't sure if I could mention A.S. or not. Yes they are the source of our plants Swords from the best I can tell.

    Must be the fastest a new arrival has died on me, not even a week.

    Hmm perhaps we aren't supposed to mention it, I forget stuff like that.

    Certainly nothing fancy. I try to adjust the water so those that are dormant or going dormant can tolerate it. I had losses when I was trying to constantly move them around from wet to dry. Now I just compromise and it works great!

    Sorry to hear yours kicked the bucket . I ended up with three plants total. I divided the plug that had two plants. If mine survive you are welcome to one. I'll ship potted .

    That's what I wanna do with one of my plant shelves!

    It's very kind of you to offer me one of yours - I don't think I could accept unless we did a trade or something but I may buy one again later, in springtime. I think it may have been just too cold since the D. adelae that I ordered with it also melted down. The last time one of those showed up (in some live moss) it grew like a weed. I thought it was still warm enough to order tropicals - I'd received Neps from Germany in mid December years back and they all survived but I guess my plant shopping by mail should be done for this year.
