    Hi Ruben .. thanks for the IM's finally got into the tank this morning - first comment In the past I have given away buckets of the stuff either to LFS's or members ... so the lack in response or availability is a bit close.

    I have replanted the tank

    2S4dSL6RKooJznWRUtXyV4SeBxHgH_0CkvAIM3qkwJ-0ik8VPFu4pcLgS2HO9kh_q-DRNw3slqN9lvEsQ=w2200-h1238-no.jpg

    and of the masses only found 3 runners that looked to be spiral

    I have divided them and planted 1/2 in D-tank and the other stayed in the tank of origin.

    The remainder that was also sorted for spiral and nothing found has been moved to other outside tanks

    Just now I missed something,

    Long story, sorry have none spare and depending on growth rate and the recovery in stock that is needed will probably not have for a while.

    So that is it 7 bits in total .... holding thumbs. D-tank is a bit untested, but it is the brightest of the lot.

    A moss grow tray ... got it in in asia last year, not 100% how it works so just cut some mixed moss to see if it will grow out.

    Scary right ... this is what the crop looked like in 2014 ...

    Spiral is weaker than the normal so I am thinking I need to get a few tubs going again so that it does not get over grown once the current stems have a few shoots.

    Ferdie do you use fancy expensive media to grow all these plants or do you make your mineralized soil

    if so where do you get clay not sure if this is an essential ingredient

    It is all a mix right ... some have expensive substrates others PFS and then just garden clay.

    I play with the various things on the market - cause that is part of the hobby for me ;-)

    So I have not given up on re-growing the few bits I salvaged from the outside tank ...

    All stems have not started pushing runners ...
