    Sorry to hear that Candace. It's been a strange year for people. Did you get that second greehouse up and running? No, I didn't make it to the SB fair. I also missed Norito's lecture. My boyfriend's family was in town and sucked up all my free time like the vampires that they are (not bitter at...

    Hey guys, well, it's been quite a few months. My cousin was diagnosed with leukemia and I've been going to see him whenever I had time (it's a long drive to SF from LA). Between working 40 hours and traveling, most of my plants perished, but amazingly most of the ones that I really hold dear...

    10g Freshwater Iwagumi Tank

    Argh, HATE dutch style. No offence, it's too planned and orderly for me, stick to Amano. :poke: I love Fundulopanchax and was planning on a pair but ended up with Pseudomugil furcatus. Nice choice though. That rock will for sure make your water harder, and if Eco Complete is anything like ADA...

    Ebb and Flow Systems

    Thanks for the info about the ebb and flow systems... something to ponder. About the car, nothing was taken, my insurance covered replacement of both the windshield and the back window (pictured); the bill that went to my insurance company was upwards of a grand.

    Ebb and Flow Systems

    Jon, you and I can have a long distance pitty party. I have beer and lemon meringue pie...I had some chocolate but I ate that for lunch. The front window looks the same. Thank god they didn't take the fish tank equipment out of the back. :poke: (but, seriously, that would have sucked). Oh dear...

    Ebb and Flow Systems

    I'll admit it, hydro is the way of the future. I picked up some Hydroton from a friend, and was going to buy a system and some grow lights today, however, the windshield and rear window of my car were totally broken out sometime last night... so no new gear for me, or food. :sob:

    It makes a lot of sense to use something like this for Phrags, has anybody tried and had positive results?

    BEWARE!!!! This is a rant on the orchid business

    I work for a nursery, and when I encounter issues with difficult individuals I just whole hardheartedly agree and tell them that indeed, the customer is always right. This generally infuriates them, and pleases me.

    Phrag Penn's Creek Castcade

    I would like to know also. Especially, in instances like this when the flowers are so heavy. Thanks!
