I’m washing all the soil off the roots for this plant wall so the aquarium water will be clear, not tea colored. The waffle plants were the first I put in the wall. Each container had 4 or 5 plants. I got them washed and separated and planted in the wall. While several of the plants didn’t look happy, one of the plants had a very serious case of the wilts to the point it was drooping with the top hanging below the insertion point in the wall. I thought for sure the plant was done for <rolls eyes at my vernacular> but it’s perked back up today, 3 days after planting. Let that be a lesson . . . if it’s a cutting or you massacre the roots, just because it wilts doesn’t mean it’s dead. Be patient and give it a chance to recover.
Wadly has decided he’s going to take care of the aquarium <SCORE!!> so I’m going to off the goldies onto LouAnn to feed her wall and let him do his guppies and comets and whatever in this tank. I no longer have to feed fish and he no longer has to whine about not having an aquarium in the house! How cool is that?! No watering plants, no feeding fish . . . I just need to sneak in a bit of potash monthly and I’m golden. <grins hugely>
