Monthly Meeting

Nearly all the plants we keep in this hobby are rheophytes, capable of living both above and below the water’s surface.  Much of the hobby is focused on submersed cultivation, but our plants have much to offer and teach us when allowed to grow why enjoy them in only one growth form when you can experience both?  Learn the basics of paludarium design, construction, scape styles, and planting techniques for long-term growth and propagation of your plants below and above water.
