With the way our postal service is going, I doubt shipping sourdough would work well. The starter, probably.

The aquariums I have left are all in storage in the garage. Plants have kinda taken over their spaces for now. Reason #27 for needing a greenhouse.

Some drosera capensis and a butterwort. They pretty much eliminated the gnat issue in my tent and have started to become malnourished...started feeding betta pellets.

Moranensis J. Ordered off eBay...arrived with a tiny bud tucked under the leaves which I recently pulled out and planted off to the side. Honestly, it’s done very well and looks much better than when I got it. The growth rate has dropped precipitously with the lack of constant gnat feedings. Fed it some spider and grasshopper bits the other day and just gave it a couple dabs of betta pellets. Such cool plants!

Killing a little time... have enjoyed seeing this thread stay afloat, along with the photos of sour dough, the BBA aquarium farm, and the ping and sundew.

Always had the 'bug' for aquatic critters and plants. My fishroom has been retired for some time, and like MrHappyRotter and WaterWitchin, I try to keep things simple (and what remains of the fishroom is stored in the attic).

Just recently broke down (because of laziness on my part) 2 small 10-gallon farm tanks that I kept going mainly because of the 'bug', and to give friends some live foilage for their aquariums. These were fairly easy to maintain - ferts & CO2 (CO2 gas injected into a simple diffuser, CO2 levels were initially monitored by a drop checker until CO2 levels were dialed in and plants were happy).

Fairly uncomplicated... got complicated by me having to call a friend who owns a fire-extinguisher company to refill the tank (doing me a favor and never charging me for the refills). Managed to keep a small 3-gallon nano because of the 'bug' that won't go away. Low maintenance set-up, slow growing, low light - growing assorted ferns, anubias, moss, & buces).

Retired 10's





The 3-gallon

@ Wisdomseeker - Wow, those are beautiful; Your setups are so clean and elegant! Would you mind showing your spaces that house the tanks as well as your ping terrariums?

No problem, you caught me at a good time (my afternoon off so I was able to snap a few photos).

I have several pings scattered about. I did have one dedicated ping terrarium. Over the weekend I made several ping divisions, gave away several plants, and broke this terrarium down over the weekend (to make room for several new orchid divisions, also made over the weekend). My camera is not not very good with full shots of my large terrariums (crappy clarity) but does a fair job with the smaller setups. I have a small cubby hole under one of my terrariums that allows me to maintain a small tray of some of the divisions I kept. The small exo (8x8x12") and one of my acrylic set-ups came out okay with the camera pictures. Kind of gives you an idea of the spaces. Other pictures are pings in different orchid set-ups. Photos below.

amazing as ALWAYS WS....so calm and tranquil

forgive my ignorance but how do you divide a ping? i have one that is clearly several plants at this point and I was just assuming it was better to leave it like that, i did not know propagating like that was a thing...is there any downside? how do you do it? a razor blade? just put and twist?

thanks
