Default Phrag. Noirmont

First bloom from Lehua breeding. I suspect it'll have better color when it's not so damned hot!

I need to have my water tested see whats in it for my own good but curious as to what minerals its adding to my plant life.

it leaves a dry oily film on everything. like its full of phosphates. eutrophication of the water supply from the source.

Well, you do live in Houston. Ever looked at the Houston ship channel?

Oh, hell no! It's a lot cleaner than it used to be, though. At one time if you fell in they took you to the hospital for a round of tetanus and other shots. The Clean Water Act of 1982 changed that to a large extent. There are still warning signs calling for the consumption of fish taken to a minimum. A majority of my work is done on the channel.
