    [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img] My dream came true last night... Potting up a Nep from Jeremiah (thanks!), I decided to experiment with a new mixture. Well, it drains as fast as pouring water through air! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] And it holds in water! YEEEEEHAW! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] there aren't any faces to use for this, but It really made my day! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/unclesam.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/blues.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]

    I've used a lot of mixes, and the water sits on the top for like 5 minutes and it takes forever to drain [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I'm sure a lot of other people have used my mix, but heris anyways:

    SMALL grade orchid bark
    Perlite, all grades combined
    Peat
    Sand

    One part of each, I THINK... I just mixed the parts till it "looked" right, to me...

    Sounds like a good mix for some other things as well, and might be good for some Utricularia, thanks for sharing that. I like a guy who's dreams and day is made by inventing new substrate mixes, but that will change one of these days, heh heh. You need to get out more.

    BTW, Congratulations Spec, you just posted your one millionth emoticon.

    Funny how times change. Mrs. Fleischman, my Senior High School English teacher (who looked and acted like a torpedo with bad hair) would reject any paper using more than one exclamation mark! Instant F. To this day, I feel her breathing down my neck when I use more than one, and it remains an act of sheer defiance on my part when I do so!!!!!

    Emoticons, schmoticons! The word is the thing! Down with all this picture/graphic stuff I say! Can you imagine Shakespear using emoticons?

    I'm tired of trying to figure out what all these pictures are supposed to mean. Pictures on the dashboard, road signs, camera instructions, drink dispensers. I'm starting to feel like an ancient Mayan (apologies to any Mayan TF members, its a very picturesque languange, but I read ENGLISH).

    I mean, do you really mean to say at the end of line 3 that you are deleriously happy, patriotic and hip, hmmmmmm? Or, is it, you are a silly All American blues musician?

    I get so confused......

    The last paragraph has me rollin too. Tamlin you are something else.

    Spec, You don't any LFS in your mix? Don't think it's not useful or do you think it is used too much in everyone elses so you avoid it to be creative? Just curios cause I do alot of mixing for my cactus. Looking for jsut the right mix. It gets very complicated really. ? Complicated soil mixing ?............................. Perhaps Spec isn't the only one who should get out more. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/confused.gif[/img]

    Unless you've fertilized the Ceph, the fungus on the LFS is probably a slime mold. Cool stuff.

    And Mr. Dawnstar would be interested to know Shakespeare intended for Hamlet to say 2B R not 2B. But early voice recognition software misunderstood his dictation. And, disgruntled by the demands of fame and groupies, he signed his later work with an unpronounceable emoticon roughly translatable as The Author Formerly Known as Shakespeare. It looked kind of like this [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img]
