With many of you growing Crypts emersed, have you tried pollination?

All it takes is patience and a good paint brush.

Not yet, but I'm getting some good plugs in tomorrow, hopefully I'll get some flowers out of them in short order. It's on the top of my "to do" list for sure.

I have taken pictures now, but they are too large for me to upload here at the forum.

Download this nifty free program. it will let youresize and save as other file formates of different quality (file size)

File--> Open
Image-->resize (adjust so the maximum width is 700 or the hight is 500)
Save as-->jpg (a window will pop up letting you select the level of quality. try default and if the image file is over 100k, then resave as a lower quality)


Hope this helps!
