    Thanks guys! . I was using the orchid mix but I don't have an RO system. I don't always have water to spare for just fertilizer. The fish food takes a little longer but is easier over all for me. For the larger plants, I place one pellet of the Cichlid food in each pitcher. For smaller plants like my little Neps and Ceph, I place one betta pellet in each pitcher (or do the best I can with getting them in each pitcher). I repeat this once a month. I'm sure it would probably be okay to use more than one pellet of cichild food per pitcher on the larger plants. I haven't experimented yet.

    Any luck with the Byblis seed BigBella?

    My "Big Easy" clone came from JLAP, who probably had it correctly ID'd. But it never grew over 2 inches tall and it died this winter.

    Hmm. Maybe 'Big Easy' isn't so easy after all. Sorry to hear you lost yours Jeff. Did you check to make sure there were no roots left? I've had decent luck with root cuttings. They just get to a certain point and stop growing.
