It's not looking too good...by the time I got the bean sprouting thing down (getting them to sprout and not mold) the numbers are way down. Right now it's looking to be way more hassle than it's worth. Also, there is a certain amount of mess they make when they shed that is less than attractive. I'l...

T-5's are my favorite lighting option at the moment. Lots of light, high effeciency, compact footprint.
One T-5 HO over your 29 may be enough, 2 would definatly be plenty.

Basicly you can use any light you want as long as it doesn't make the tank too hot.

I've had two such pms in the last month, and, though annoying, they aren't the end of the world or anything.
So long as people know not to click on them (cause usually such things are a good way to get a virus) it's not a big deal.

I figured out a sure way to deal with the mold. (works for me anyways) Turns out my first instinct worked best...loaded the pea plant substrate with white woodlice and springtails...no mold to be seen, and a much better sprout rate. Still waiting for the aphids to start reproducing though...I only s...

I ordered an innoculant for that purpose...
Kind of don't want to buy dirt...I have so much used up froglet container media around it's ridiculous...trying to ammnend that for the purpose.
Thanks for the tip though.

Also just found out that legumes rely on bacteria in the soil, and brand new soil ( soil that has not had legumes grown in it before) lacks this bacteria, therefore, most of the time, a first crop of beans will do poorly, so it sounds like recycling the soil should help...but if it's full of mold, w...

The aphids are now migrating towards the black eyed pea plants...probably because the hosts are about used up. A search for organic solutions to my molding problem found a few leads. Cinnamon is an age old anti fungal. Cornmeal is also supposed to help. A gentle breeze is said to help too...I knew t...

Nice trick Eric. I'll have to try that. I get my cultures from the garden. Rose bushes, plum trees, veggies. They are all around if you look for them. Look at the new tender growth. Keeping the beans ahead of them is the problem indoors. I can never keep them going for long.......because I'm not di...

Already tried that...it works to some extent, but still having problems.
Springtail/aphid co-culture?

Tried some on my brazillian yellowheads...they seemed to like them. I suggest anyone who tries these take some time getting used to pea cuturing first. I thought I had it down well enough, but the aphids seem to grow/multiply way faster than the peas will grow. I had about 3 weeks of sprouts started...

I got my starters today...I can see why the frogs don't necessarily go crazy for them...they don't really move unless dislodged from the plants, so just taking the plants/culture and putting it in the viv probably won't work too well...when it comes time for me to try feeding them out, I'll probably...

I'm going to order my starter next week. I started by sprouting both some fancy fava bean seeds, and some black-eyed peas (had them anyway, for bean beetle culture). The fava beans, which were way more expensive than the black-eyed peas, are taking way longer to sprout, and much more succeptable to ...
