    April-May 2014, what is going on recently… 

    Due to a long business trips I had no time to update my site. I have written some posts in Czech… and now for something completely different – English update..

    So… here it is.

    Plants are growing just fine. I am trying to do a regular changes of water and from time I measure water parameters. As I wrote before, some new species are making me happy. But more on that topic later in a new post. I have uncovered my glass cover a bit more to lower humidity and for better air circulation. Some of my plants really resemble submersed condition. It is time to toughen up!

    Oh, and I nearly forgot… My C. wendtii ‘Green Gecko‘ got nice reddish pattern on leaves also in an emersed form.

    ‘Green Gecko‘ gone wild! Gone red! 

    Updated: January 24, 2013

    - new photo

    I love red colour of my submersed Cryptocoryne wendtii ‘Green Gecko’. New leaves are reddish while the older ones go to green (at least for now).

    Cryptocoryne wendtii ‘Green Gecko’ finally arrived! 

    My new Green Gecko Crypt arrived yesterday. It took 8 days from Hong Kong. Crypt seems to be fine… of course, some leaves melted, but overall it looks great.
