Outdoor tub Collection

So, my planted tank lights went bust. Had to shift all the plants to outdoor tub and let them grow with Nature's mercy.

This is a 2 feet x 15" (width) x 12" (depth) plastic tub. Substrate is garden soil topped with JBL Manado.

Plants added: crypt wendtii, Tenellus, Pinnatifida, Reincki mini, Ludwigia palustris and H. Araguaia. Let's see how they grow. I will add a tiny filter in the weekend and start fertliser dosing too.

Let's see how this turns out to be.

Cheers,

I have to learn the art of Balcony Pond. Whenever I try to keep some, I get green water.

Lovely work karthik.

Thanks guys..
The only thing that worked for my outdoor tubs is loading the container with more and more plants, regular water changes and nutrient dosage. :)

Cheers

I had no time to maintain this of late and after a month of neglect, this is how it looks:

The filter had conked off, no water changes and fertiliser dosage.
