    And watch for mealybugs - I am dealing with that on my phals now. Managed to avoid them on my Leomesezium which is now quarantined in the Bathroom.
    It makes lots of lovely pink flowers:

    That was in April, may make another bunch now, or not due to constant moving.

    Orchids are found on every continent except Antarctica
    And in all situations from extreme exposed tundra to dense tropical jungle. Only absent from true desert.
    There are terrestrial species, lithophytes (rock growing), epiphyte, and even some parasitic species.

    When you get a plant, try and identify it, do some research re it's habitat and then match the growing conditions as best as you can

    Was lying in bed and heard clicking from my catfish tank, which is odd. Turns out it was the males communicating. And the lady has eggs! IMG_20201004_003617.jpgVery hard to see there - I'm guessing 30+ which is way more than last!

    I also tried rabbit once. Visually it reminded me of a cat and I have never really gotten over it.

    I’ve had rabbit a couple of times and have cooked it myself twice. Some recipes were nicer than others, but generally it tastes like chicken :rolleyes:

    Shot a few and wifey knows how to make an extremely nice dish with it. Now to buy rabbit meat, it is WOW expensive (if you can get). Same as quail eggs.

    Trick with rabbit is easy, and I learned it from speaking to a few (brilliant if I may say) chefs...

    Just give it to someone else to cook who knows what they are doing an pair with a good bottle or 5 of red

    I’ve been wanting to do one for a long time yes! And have been eyeing out this specific tank for a while. It’s still there, staring me down :D
