    Phil,
    As always, dazzling plants grown to perfection!

    Steve,
    Thanks for sharing the photos.

    (I've also used styrofoam peanuts for drainage for many years, with no sign of breakdown or toxicity.)

    That's good to know. I thought I remembered this one time when I put some packing peanuts in my mouth and they sort of dissolved... Maybe the chemicals and toxicity of my mouth dissolved the peanuts!

    I might have to try that next time I get a package and my plants are a little bigger.

    LOL! Yeah...I would say at least that much.

    xvart- The reason those packing peanuts disolved in your mouth was because those were not the styrofoam type but another variety made with corn starch. They're made to break down immediately upon contact with moisture. It makes them more ecologically friendly.

    jorick- That plant you like so much is not N. tentaculata but rather N. mikei. Just the same...thank you for liking it. I enjoy it very much too.

    Yummy... What's good for the environment is not good for my belly.

    Note in regard to packing peanuts: If I remember correctly, the colored ones are toxic. The white ones that Phil is using are not. Just in case anyone is thinking of trying this.

    Cheers,

    Joe
