    Cover Or Flood?

    Hello all, I have a somewhat time-sensitive question, as I need to decide before tomorrow morning, but I can always have someone make an adjustment for me if required. I am going to be away for a week and I'm not sure if I should cover my emersed growth setup with seran wrap or leave it...

    Co2 Absorption With Wet Leaves?

    Howdy, all! I'm about to start my first paludarium after years of dabbling with planted tanks, and I'm planning to use aquatic plants grown emersed throughout. I want to do this so I don't have to worry about drainage or constant saturation, but a thought recently occurred to me and I haven't...

    My E(im)mersed Thank(s)

    Yeah the heading of the thread makes me seem rather indecisive, but I do have a real plan - well almost. My first e(im)mersed tank is a 900x600x600 cube ... it is just over 5 weeks in the making every few days I add a few more plants or wood. Depending on the success of this tank I will be...

    Had a go at bashing one of these out tonight. Really interested in progressing with this stuff further but every plant I touch out of water seems to shrivel up and die :P Seems there a whole new world of things to learn for these but I am determined to keep one alive. Not sure of the moss...

    Humidity, Does it even matter?... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Pretty much everyone has seen my https://barrreport.com/threads/about-time-someone-made-an-emersed-setup-journal.14350/ Emersed setup journal. And my plants grow in a greenhouse, with only 20% to 30% humidity, all the time. unless it rains. And growth is insane and overtaking on every plant...
