Hi, this morning I repotted my U. alpina so I took some pics of the root system.

The plant:

Beautiful pictures,but the last one is really nice . Fantastic red colours in your H.pulchella and it looks really nice with that red spagnum.

Keep them coming.....

Thanks for the nice comments :D

I keep the pulchella 2" far from an acquarium neon (┬žAquaristica Hi lite 18W 10 000┬░K).

H. nutans is under an Osram fluora 18W/77 but the red color depends more on temperature range than light, 'cause it's a bit far from the lamp. The third tube is a simple philips with a very yellow light.

nice specimens. what is the marking on the U.alpina leaves, hard water?

It's a bit of sulphur I gave this summer to solve a little botritis problem.
