Just curious - what kind of crabs do they offer in Norway? Do petshops have them or do you have to import them yourselves?
Thank you! We can order from petshops, but they are not on display in the store. We can get a hold on ruggies, straws and the big one, can't remember the name! Also the blue ones. No PP's so we ended up with ruggis :)

The last one is a spider plant. The long one on pic 4 is elephant foot/ponytail palm.

Pic 2 is
Asparagus Fern(Protasparagus setaceus)

The larger fern is a boston fern.

Ahh ponytail. I normally look for their bulburous trunk, which that didnt have. I guess they are slow growing.

Yes, and it is a small frag or sprout :) A baby ponytail!

I'm wondering if the one that looks like a peace lilly is a dracaena compact sprout? So stupid of me not to write it down!
