Got the initial surge of plants I wanted, a few as pots and tissue culture so wanted to ask some advice of you better then me. Still waiting on a few select plants and weeping moss to finish but here it goes. Cyptocoryne Retrospiralis, out of all 21 plants these ones seemed worse for wear. They (all plants) have only been in their new home for about 36 hours. They have a bit more green now instead of brown and sadness. But my question is what's best way to perk this guy back up ? Monte Carlo, I've read a lot on this plant cause I absolute love the way it looks. But my question is, will it work? Right now they aren't really pushed into the substrate, just resting on top with a rock, bit of glue here and there. Should I try thinning and pushing further in? Or let it do its thing? And pray it takes hold? Alternanthera Reineckii Mini, tissue culture. Everything I've read is hit or miss of them acclimating to the environment, this one I really wanted. So an insight? One is kinda losing some red and turn green a bit so idk if that's a melting trait or what. Haven't added the Java moss, or weeping moss (waiting) might add some more anubias petites. But that's what I'm working with so far.
Hi there: I'm really loving using the water hyacinths in my ponds, but in a couple of them, I'm noticing some pretty heavy pest damage: I found some 1" sized back and grey caterpillars, so it's clearly a moth or butterfly of some kind laying eggs on the plants. My question is, has anyone had any decent luck with any kind of treatment or pesticide that makes them less appealing to the critters, but is also pond safe? I don't mind mixing up a spray bottle of something, but I don't want to poison my ponds. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer! Bill
