    I get large ones like 8" square from the pond section of home depot.
    All the smaller, round ones, I get from my local grow shop.

    Difficult photo due to the curvature of the brandy snifter but you can kind of make out some bladders on the right.
    Grand Hotel... always the same. People come, people go. Nothing ever happens.

    un-intended Nelumbifolia!
    After coming home from a few days away for surgery, I noticed a leaf laying in the water tray....with a plantlett growing from the leaf margin.

    Yall are waay overthinking it... you don't need live moss although it helps. Live or dead sphagnum is definately a good choice though.

    Don't need net pots and a nighttime temp drop isn't as vital as it is for highland neps or helis, although it certainly helps. I've grown mine at cool room tbs (65F) for several years now in a yogurt container with holes punched out the bottom.

    Hi!
    I need advice.
    I have only few tiny pieces of this plant. So, what can you recommend to do with them? Now they are in jar with water and, I think, have grown a bit.

    P.S. The jar is between two CFL, it's to light for them?
    Thanks!

    put them on live sphagnum, cover lightly with several strands and keep moist?
    Would that work?
