    Been 5 weeks and the transformation from a convict tank that one could barely keep a plant alive in to this was amazing. Still learning as one does, but my feeling is that I will be doing more e(im)mersed tanks.

    For me the concept of an e(im)mersed tank relates to the formation of new growth .. when it is too wet to be emersed and not wet enough to be immersed. What new growth might look like could vary greatly.

    I thought about it ... but everything is so wet as it is, not sure I need more water, truth is I am starting to think I might need a dry period.

    Everything stays so wet .. do not think I need more water on the plants at this stage.
