> Hi All, I haven't posted in some time, but I have an update for one of my

> The plants are, from left, Spathiphyllum 'Petite', Alocasia amazaonica
> 'Polly' (maybe?), Spathiphyllum ?, Diffenbachia ?, Spathiphyllum 'Golden
> Glow', Cyrtosperma johnstonii.
> I acquired most of these as potted houseplants from the grocery store and
> places like Home Depot--hence the incomplete variety information. I
> suppose that the C. johnstonii is the only thing of much botanical
> interest. I also like the 'Golden Glow' Spath. because it is unusual.
> These plants have all grown well in here. I am especially pleased that the
> Cyrtosperma has done so well--I wondered about that one. It will
> eventually become too large for this enclosure, but it is still only about
> 10" (25cm) tall and growing slowly. It grows a new leaf only every 4 weeks
> or so. Here is a shot of one of the unusual leaves of this plant.

> The little foreground plants that you can see in the shade of the aroids
> include a couple of different Pilea sp. and Hypoestes sp.. There are a few
> different Cryptocoryne gorwing in the underwater area. Fish include
> peacock gudgeons (Tateurndina ocellicauda), pygmy cories (Corydoras
> pygmaeus) and a poecilid livebearer (Poeciliopsis prolifica). The fish
> make a nice display too. I especially enjoy the little cory cats.
