I have a couple of articles scheduled for publication in the coming months.
In one titled "Patio Pond in a Pot" I demonstrate how to use low four gallon
'aquatic planters' for bog plants. The other article is titled "The High
Tech Aqua Terrarium" in which I describe a terrarium technique that works
well in my small lab here at Spring Meadow. I'll try to remember to send
you copies. Perhaps they may be of interest to your students.
