    Ah, you warm the cockles of my AV loving heart! I have rescued quite a few myself. Looks great!

    Beautiful violet. I might try one again, never had much luck in the past. Too dry here and dusty.

    Beautiful african violet. I used to grow them also but they would wind up getting mealybugs.

    Nah, smartie, strictly plants. My critters have their own quarters.

    Never had any prob w/ mealies & AV's. Usually my prob is with gettng watering right. Often i'll let them completely dry out then water heavily and they just steadily decline. Curious how it will do in this bog terr since I don't plan on having any air circulation.

    Nice Nep., watch out for the fertilizer around it. Also, it might give you trouble if you keep the roots too wet. They like to be situated in AV-like conditions, moist all the time, but not soaked. Good luck.
