Got asked for some pictures so here we go. For the quick version the original five Buces continue to do well, the five new ones are adapting.
My normal view.
Artemis. Was having trouble with a picture, cause I'm me. New leaf there. All the original five put out a new leaf in the last week or will in a few days.
Green chili. The flower is browning, but was pretty while it lasted. So do I cut this thing off? This one had two new leaves in the last week thanks to the sideshoot. The one with the water droplets is the newest on the main plant. Not really a good pic though either.
Gunung sumpit. New leaf just finished opening today.
Mentarang kal-timur. The picture doesn't really show it off, but the leaf bases are red in color. See? Not all my plants are green!
Theia brown. Looks bad right? Well check out the bottom left of it for a little baby leaf. It's adapting, but will take a long time to look like the first five pictures.
Sanggau. The leaf on the left is slowly dying. Common trait with these new Buces. No clue if I should cut it off. I haven't as of yet.
Centipede 2. Only one of three Buces I currently have with a sideshoot. Only one of the newest Buces to put out a new leaf since I got them. Of course at the same time it did that, the top leaf started to deteriorate.
Semuntai 2. This one has actually done nothing. No growing, no dying back.
Bukit biru. Another on its way to adaptiontown! The theia brown had one baby leaf. This has three, although you might only be able to see two. The are occurring on the rhizome were the old leaves fell off. If I had to guess these tiny leaves might be the start of sidestems. Not sure, but will let everyone know.
The Crypt nurii pots. No fast growth, but they are all still growing. I think maybe I should open up an Osmocote + root tabs and spread it out between the four pots. I haven't fertilized at all yet. Should start, but no clue what to use or how often. Need a spray for the buces and ferns.
My emersed tanks also have blackwater. Why? Cause I'm BWG and that's how I roll.
