This year, I backed off on buying orchids, and decided to purchase a few other plants that I have been interestd in. I got several "Russian" African Violets-- some outrageously weird. I also bought more aquarium plants. Before it gets too cold I am getting some tissue cultures for aquarium plants-- can't wait. Well, I guess I have to wait because, like orchids, aquatic plants are notoriously slow. I did buy a few orchids: Cattleya lueddemanniana, Cattleya trianae, and Paph. Shireen (glaucophyllum x philippinense).

I am buying the aquatic plants because I have a 2nd planted tank in the works--a used 60-gallon hexagonal tank (huge) that I bought for 45 dollars which was quite a steal. I plan on thickly planting, but not overstocking with fish. I have a population with 2 angelfish, and several tetras, which will go into the hex, and the 75 (15 gallons more) will have the 2 blood parrots, pleco and another group of tetras.

Right now the blood parrots and angelfish are roomies.

I'm a big fan of the Russian hybrid violets. Do you ever shop at The Violet Barn?
