 Hi  guys.
 It  has  been  a  long  time  since  I  started  a  topic.  After  failing  miserably  to  keep  plants,  I  had  been  keeping  fish  only  tanks  for  last  4  years.  Now  I  have  decided  again  to  try  my  hands  on  growing  plants.
 This  is  an  old  plastic  drum  which  I  will  be  using  on  my  roof  terrace  using  natural  sunlight.
 
 I  have  already  some  growing  plants  in  a  glass  jar  for  1  year.  The  water  becomes  quite  hot,  but  the  plants  are  thriving.  These  might  be  dwarf  sagittaria,  not  sure  though.  There  are  some  algae  issues,  but  the  plants  are  fine.
 
 Since  that  thing  was  a  success  with  my  minimum  effort,  I  am  looking  forward  to  the  bigger  project.
 The  drum  is  about  150  Lts,  with  a  2  ft  dia  and  2  ft  deep.  I  will  be  using  normal  soil  and  sand,  nothing  special,  just  regular  potting  soil.  And  I  am  thinking  of  adding  a  pump  for  better  circulation.  If  the  thing  works,  I  might  add  some  guppies/goldfish.
 This  will  be  in  direct  sunlight  in  the  morning  till  12  noon.
 What  are  you  suggestions?  Will  it  work?  I  will  be  keeping  easy  plants  like  Ottelia  alismoides,  Ludwigia  sedioides,  Nymphaea  sp.  Leopard,  red  lily,  Ludwigia  palustris,  java  moss,  anubias,  duckweed,  etc.
 This  was  the  last  time  I  had  plants  in  my  aquarium,  4-5  years  back   Crying or Very sad  
 
 
 PS-  these  are  the  babies  I  am  growing  right  now.  I  got  these  at  2  inch  size,  now  they  are  almost  6  inch  in  8  months.  Worth  keeping  an  ugly  bare  bottom  tank!   Thumbs Up
