Did I spend to much just for this one plant? NO! I learned a great deal. And I think I will as my son was telling me to start looking a bit more into areoponitics.

Thank you so much for your help
Thanks for the update, I was wondering how they were doing just the other day. I'm wondering what air stones your using now that work better? I haven't used anything but the ones from wal-mart. Though I do know the round tube like ones just clog. So I started using the blue stones.
