How to care for ho useplant begonia rex?


Growing Requirements for Rex Begonia Plants Rex Begonias grow best in bright, indirect sunlight coming from an east or west window.
Fluorescent grow lights are also an excellent alternative to natural light for these plants,
and in many cases will intensify the foliage colors.
When potting, set the plant with the crown slightly above the soil line.
They should be planted in a porous, slightly acidic planting mix that contains some peat moss
and leaf mold. African Violet potting mixes work well for Rex Begonias.

Allow the top 1inch of soil to dry before watering, then water thoroughly.
Over watering can lead to root or crown rot! Wet foliage can cause problems with mildew.
Always use room temperature water when watering house plants.
House plants should never be allowed to stand in water for more than a few hours.
Painted-Leaf Begonia plants thrive with daytime temperatures of 70-75
and 60-65 at night. NEVER lower than 60!
They require a humidity level of at least 50 percent and appreciate periodic, light misting.
Provide additional humidity by setting the plants on shallow trays filled with moistened pebbles,
or a humidifier, especially during the winter months.

Feed actively growing plants in early spring and again in early summer with a slow-release plant food,
or every 2 weeks using a quarter strength dilution of a soluble, complete fertilizer (23-19-14).
Decrease feeding in early fall and stop altogether in the winter. Do not over-fertilize!

Your Begonia Rex may go dormant in the winter and possibly drop its leaves.
If this happens, continue to water sparingly until spring when new leaves will re-appear.
If your Rex is growing where it only gets light from one side ( a window sill),
turn the pot a quarter turn each week to maintain even growth.
Foliage color may fade under low light conditions. Consider using a grow light.

Remove any dead leaves and other debris around plant regularly.
Rex Begonias enjoy spending the summer in a shaded part of the garden.
Always be sure to check for insects and pests before bringing your plants back indoors!
Rex Begonias are susceptible to attacks from mealy bugs.

I cannot afford an aquarium chiller; however the temperature in my tank keeps rising and I can't seem to get it down. What should I do?


If your tank is in a room equipped with air conditioning, that would be your best bet; however if not, there are a few other options available to you.


I found a great do it yourself article on making a homemade aquarium chiller - take a look and see if it helps.

http://saltaquarium.about.com/od/diychillerplans/ss/sbsdiychiller.htm


If this does not help, then try the following ideas:

Fill a plastic bottle with water, freeze it, and then place in the tank

Adjust your lighting

Attach small clip-on fans to the hood of your aquarium and aim them towards the waters surface

Is an aquarium chiller necessary for a saltwater tank?


Yes. Marine fish live in very specific conditions where the temperature does not change very frequently. A chiller is essential in order to keep the water temperature at a steady level, in turn keeping your fish happy and healthy.

When do I need an aquarium chiller?


You'll need a chiller when the ambient room temperature is higher than the desired temperature of your aquarium. This can happen due to many reasons such as:

1) If you live in a warm part of the world and decreasing the room temperature is not good enough.

2) If you wish to keep cold water species in your aquarium.

3) If you have installed heat emitting equipment that increases the water temperature such as light, pumps etc.

What is an inline water chiller?


An in-line water chiller is equipped with internal cooling coils. Water is pumped out of the aquarium, into the chiller where it is cooled, and then back to the aquarium again. An in-line chiller can be placed away from the aquarium and is therefore easier to hide.

Since I moved to a new apartment, the original fish in my aquarium died. I changed the fish and they live but the plants died slowly. Why? acidity of the water?


just like any other living things, plants and animals require certain conditions to thrive. for the fish it will be adequate food, enough air supply and room temperature. for the plant, adequate light and water is critical. you mentioned the acidity of the water, to be on the safe side make sure the PH of the water is neutral or near neutral at PH 7. if you meet all these conditions, your pet and plants should be fine. thanks

Thermal coupling in wine chiller


No, I would not recommend putting water into the chill chamber since if there is a "gap" hole in this compartment, the water could get inside the unit's electronics etc.. which could at the very least short the unit and at worst electrocute you as you take the bottle out/touch the unit. That's the problem with this or any other Peltier/thermoelelectric type of chiller. They are only good for maintaining an ALREADY cold bottle's temperature, not for chilling it rapidly. There is no good or inexpensive way to get better chilling from these types of units. It's the law of themodynamics and heat transfer. Water is the best/safest/most inexpensive medium to use, not chilled air or even super cold air. Cold air or even super cold air just does not match the chilling potential of a liquid like water. The reason why 50F air is no problem, for you to be out in for hours, but 50F water you'll get hypothermia in 20-30 mins.

The best unit for chilling a warm wine bottle is the cooper cooler. Go to www.coopercooler.com. It uses ice and water and sprays the ice cold water over the bottle while spinning it to chill it quickly. This unit is great since it can also chill single serve drinks like beer/soda etc so is more versatile than the other chillers. Cheapest is about $59 which is much less than the waring at ~$100
