Nice work my friend!! I like very much just searching and watching emersed setups and the diversity of the plants! I started my setup with a 5630 led strip clear white color. Please could u tell us some details about your lighting; thanks!

Thanks for all the replies everyone, I should get around to doing an update tonight, the bin has been filling with plants and I'm getting ready to sell some plants and what not to get another one started.

I got the idea from a sticky here on the forum.

As for lights, I'm currently using 2 of the "Plant grow" flourescent lights from walmart and 1 13w 6500k cfl bulb.

Well yall asked for it so I guess it's time for an update.

Been opening the bin and spraying it with RODI about 2-3 times per week. Humidity is keeping around 85-90% depending on the day and the time of the day I check.

Now for the pictures

First off we have the Dwarf Baby Tears, they're filling in wonderfully and it's about time to thin them a bit and try to raise funds for another bin



The Jap red is doing well, if I don't get any bites on the stems, I will trim and replant them to make more



The B Monnieri has been growing like wildfire, I've trimmed from here on a monthly basis, last time I took it down to about 8 stems 2" long, that was a month or so ago...



The crypts have filled in and are waiting for new homes



The Alternanthera Reineckii that I started out with 2 months ago with just 4 stems has filled in really nicely, some beautiful reds with it as well!



And now for the full bin shot! I've been itching to make another bin, I do have some A. Nana which has been doing well as well, but the leaves for some reason are a bit pale, not sure if they need some extra nutrients or what not, but I'm itching to get another bin going!



As always, thanks for dropping by and viewing my journal! If you have any questions, comments, etc... feel free to leave them in a reply below and I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner. Sorry about the delays with some of the responses, I wasn't getting notifications on tapatalk.

Greetings everyone!

It's time for an update I love doing updates!!!!!!

I haven't been trimming things as frequently because I've been trying to let stuff grow in a bit and now it's turning into a jungle I love it!

First up my Bacopa Monnieri! Wow this stuff has been growing like a weed, it's even reaching out into other bins!



Next up: Rotala Macrandra Japan Red, this stuff has been a bit slow to get going but it looks like it's doing better now. I trimmed it down to dirt level almost about 6 weeks ago.



In our next little corner we have Alt. Reineckii. This stuff has been growing well for me a rate of about 1" per week on most stems. Nice and healthy and happy!



Now, the money shot (yes I know I didn't do close ups of everyone LOL) The HC is doing well even though I ripped 90% of it out about 6 weeks ago, my A. Nanas are coming along (almost ready to be split) and I've split up the crypts!



Anyways, thanks for dropping by to my humble bin thread! If you have any suggestions or comments, please feel free to leave them and I'll be happy to get back in touch!

Hey everyone! Just wanted to drop by to let you know that my Bacopa Monnieri has decided to start flowering, well and to share two pictures with you of it of course!





I'll try to get better pictures once it opens up!
