    Planning Orchid House

    So my mum has her eyes on a brand new, proper Orchid glasshouse. We currently just have a bunch of shadecloth hung up behind the back porch where they are, and, well, we've had some interesting problems from that... The stupidest and funniest, while still sad, was a baby slipper orchid. Hung the...

    SOS! Biosduval Scale on full sized Mango Tree!

    We have a massive Mango Tree int the corner of our back yard. We finially kicked a scale infestation in our Orchid House, which has over 100 Orchids, but the entire tree is badly affected. Can we stop the scale using Shadecloth to fully enclose the orchid house? It has gaps for airflow, and is...

    These were all I managed before they saw me and flew away. =D

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    No, all the ones around here get them from some big chain called Pisces that just hands out seemingly random plants. My 10g tank is just large gravel, with some floating Elodea and a huge Anubias I might have to remove since it's actually outgrowing the tank. The Lilaeopsis grass I got never...

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    Alright, thanks, that explains the slow growth. I'll find it a new pot and stick something else in where it is now. Unfortunately all the pet shops around here get plants from the same supplier who keeps giving them non aquatic plants, including ones like Aluminium which can't be submerged at...

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    These are it currently- the leaves from above, the pot, and the roots that are sticking out on the top still. Sorry for the low quality, the camera is a bit old. The tank does get water changes every 2-3 weeks, with pretreated water. I haven't given it any root tabs yet. The plant is currently...

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    This is an old pic from when I planted it, can you tell what kind it is here? It's the one on the right. The one on the left is an Anubias.

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    Hi, thanks for replying! I'm waiting on the pics I just took to be sent to me, I don't know what species this plant is aside from just being sold as a lizards tail. I found just leaving it in the water but letting the water level drop is okay, and it's doing well in the small glass bowl I'm...

    I think this is a Golden Barrel Hybrid cactus?

    Not sure what this is. It was sold at Bunnings as a 'Ball Cactus'. Considering I recently got an incorrectly mounted Catlia orchid listed as a Dendrobium I'd say this has a different name. It finally flowered, so that helps! It has a small ring of unopened flower buds on the crown, and I...

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    Can't edit it. Filled the rest of the pot with a nice fine gravel, roots no longer exposed, and every second night I'm leaving the plant out of the tank until the leaves grow large enough to fully leave the water.

    Lizard Tail in an Aquarium

    So, I know Lizard Tail is a bog plant, and shouldn't be fully submerged all the time. Does anyone know the actual limits? The tank it's in usually has about 14 inches of water, and an open top with a light and airation in the water. It's a soft water tropical tank, and the plant is planted in a...
