    a member saw my growlist and asked if i had some availible. i told him i wasnt sure and would check when i got home. well now im home and checked and it doesnt look to good. its in amoungst 15 or so Utrics, all but one or 2 are doing fine and spreading like mad. its growing in peat and its pot is sitting in about 1/3 inch of water. they are all in a 5 1/2 gal tank being lit by a 100 watt compact flourecent. the tank is abou 85% covered with a opening for air circulation. it is recieving normal house hold temps(70-75 degrees). any ideas?

    G. filiformis can be a tempermental punk in my experience. I actually have found it grows best in pots that have been established for a long time. Right now my best growing one (and that isn't saying much) is in a peat:sand mix top dressed with live sphag. The pot is 2 years old and used to house a D. spatulata. The ones at ABG do really well grown in net potsin deep trays and recieving constant misting but that is difficult to simulate without a greenhouse type set up.

    established basically eans its either been used for growing a plant for an extended time. prolly 6 months to a year. i guess the "micro enviroment" of the pot has more or less stablized. think of an established fish tank versus a newly made one, chemicals and bacteria and stuff has allowed to balance out. i think Tamlin said he sets pots of peat outside for a year and than plants in them for some species. this would do basically the same thing.

    He does that to allow the rain to leach the soil though.
