    Super Size Me: U. nelumbifolia

    Thought I'd show my method for growing U. nelumbifolia, since I've had a few requests for info.
    Nothing special really, just a couple 5 gallon buckets. The orange one has some holes drilled in the bottom. The black one is for holding RO water.
    The media is pure live LFS. The plant grows in the orange bucket, sending roots/bladders into the black water basin below.
    Growing in the corner of the HL greenhouse.. it flowers non-stop year round for me.

    Nice, I love that! Could ya show us what's hanging out of the top bucket into the water basin? How thick of a layer of LFS do you have in there?

    Thanks mass!
    I am needing to repot mine at this time...I will use your method.
    This should work for the Reniformis as well!

    Very impressive!
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
