Default CAPE Meeting Jan. 21 at 2pm - Emersed Plant Workshop

Last year's emersed plant workshop focused on converting plants to emersed form so they could be grown out in bins. This year, we're going to get a bit creative and use those plants to make an emersed container layout.

The meeting will be at 2pm on the 21st at my place in Fairfield (PM me if you need the address)
Everyone should bring, if possible:
-a small glass container
-any hardscape you want to use
-any emersed plants you might use (and any plants you want to trade)
-yourself
-creativity

Hope to see y'all there, and please let me know if you're planning to come.

-Amanda

I will bring some plants and hardscape to trade - if others do the same we can probably put together some pretty cool scapes.

Plants:
  • Crypt Parva
  • Staurogyne Repens
  • Marsilea Minuta
  • Sagittaria
  • Anubias barteri - misidentified as "nana" I think it is "barteri".
Hardscape:
  • Small ohko stones (dragon stone)
  • Petrified wood
  • Driftwood
  • Pagoda stone
  • Other misc. stones

Thanks for chipping in, Luke!

I'll be supplying small amounts of various substrates:
Earthworm castings
Coal slag
regular pea gravel
Turface blend
a bit of Florabase

Also some trimmings from my emersed collection for people who don't have their own stuff

BTW Eric emailed me to say he's coming, too.

Woeful as it may be, due to the oncoming snowstorm I've decided we're going to have to postpone the meeting. (The management of our designated meeting location forced my hand.) Any thoughts on when a good reschedule date might be?

Now if only that was in Fairfield, Ohio, I would be all over that like Java Moss on a filter intake I wish I could come to that, especially since I am still trying to id some of the plants Amanda sent me from her outdoors culture!

I'll have to check with the family to see if they've got plans for next weekend - it's the weekend right before my birthday (Monday 1/30) and I never know what they're plotting. If nothing's going on, then yeah, next Sat. works for me.
