What did you do in your sacred garden today?

Recommended Posts

Repurposed a 55-gallon terrarium as a steamy hot-box for propagating by putting four 40Watt incandescent light bulbs under it. (The friend's snake died . . . still smells like snake.)

Have M velutina, lots of normal cactus, and a few specials. Have ordered a STC-100 thermostat off ebay, but really, I can keep the heat where I want it by just adjusting the vents.

Roger.

the spring came early for these small tufts of the famous Crocus sativus . amazing flower and stamens

this is probably due to the very mild winter we have been having up to now, also and unusual drought for this time of year.

became a moss boss ..

...trial ran a possible next "virola nut tek" on some random psychotria i think in the meantime just to stay in good practice and high spirits..

tried introducing some new nature into the RFB along with the mosses..

had 3 caupuri sprouts on the 'old toad/Tlalocan'..

found a nice little caapi leaf cutting doing a viridis on me in the paqarena (aeropod)... :)

and a nice successful viridis leaf cutting in there too..

: 3 Nerite Snails have a reputation for being an outstanding tank cleaner and one of the most proficient algae eating snails around.

also spruced up a bit ... and checked the cactlets and ayawasklets,

one of the SAD bulbs went on the cactie tank.... so instead of replacing it I took apart the lamp and devised a way to attach an LED floodlight...

cleaned up the aeropod a tad too..

My nexus is flowering alongside my cartha and viridis so I am hoping for some some cross pollination by the native bees!

I got up early and gave the floribunda hedge a trim, it's been the best screen I've ever used. 3" tube to over 8feet in 1yr

It's a race to the top. Caapi vs morning glory. Mg is in the lead, but caapi is holding her own.

I'm surprised how fast caapi takes off once it has something to climb.

I I scrubbed a few old pots out and potted up a Madagascar Palm, a small Pachanoi Knob and the Queen Mother. All are doing well.

figured I'd procure 2 local Tylomelania spp. and a Faunus ater to see if I can get them to wake the 'dead' ones that way ...

and it worked : 3 - maybe the smell of a mate?, or competition? *shrug*

also rinsed the shop of their last 12 Aphyocharax paraguayensis too :wub: which was a nice rare find in the process.. fingers x'd for more soon if there happens to be an influx..

i hope the cute horned nerites breed .. and the tylomelaniae :3

it would be interesting if the 2 tylomelania species hybridize

not sure about the zebra nerites but assuming they breed successfully in fresh water like their horned relatives

but the Faunus needs brackish water as far as I know (and a mate) maybe the zebs do to? time will tell..

if they do breed it will take a long time (relatively compared to other aquatic snails) I reckon

... might breed the paraguay tetra though , seem to be rare as fuck

as far as breeding (esp in the past) my thing was to breed plecos and dwarf/amazonian cichlids
