    Actually I think it's more likely to be hygro angustifolia...

    It's not spot on, but it's closer than polysperma....

    +1 with H. Angustifolia, if the leaves were more yellow green it could be H.Corymbosa

    Grrr...I thought you were like an expert or something...should have known better! :blush:

    yeah the 1200 is great, but still a bit noisy. need to get round to closing up that middle compartment, I think that will help :)

    Still messing about a bit with placement of the spraybar etc...just cant get it right, trial and error :)
