Aquatic growing

I thought I would add some of my limited knowledge to the discussion. :>)

I grow many aquatics and love the unusual aquatic aroids. I have been 
growing many of these plants in heated trays with about 2inches of water. 
All the aquatics love it which are manly Cyrtosperma lasia urospatha anubias 
and crypts.

I have been recently using capillary mats on a few tables for starting 
cuttings. The tables are covered with plastic and then the capulary mat is 
on top. It stays  constantly moist but not actually soaked. This may also 
depend on the mix that is being used. But I have found many aroids love this 
situation. I have resently been growing philo cutting alocasia lowii and 
cyrtosperma and other crypts all on this with the same soil mix. Also a few 
anthuriums I had placed on the capulary mat had grown roots to it.

I got the idea from a visit to Tim andersons place and have had great 
sucsess with it. I am totally hooked in growing them this way. I think it is 
very easy and cheeper than hydro.
