OK Steve, so you caught me. But this was a long time ago. I very rarely
eat people's brains anymore.

Hey Terry,

The plants are in a container about 15 cm deep. The planting medium is
a 50/50 mix of peat moss and perlite, with a top dressing of pure
perlite to make the soil nice and white (to minimize solar heating of
the medium). This container sits in a tray that has about 2--8 cm of
water in it.
