    Beautiful!

    All my macro utrics grow down into the water, but just not to that extent. But almost.

    Very interesting about alpina. Based on what is written about this group, I would not have thought this would work. Goes to show how adaptable they can be (at least sometimes). Do you still give them a drying-out period some time during the year?
