Porcelain Calacatta

posted by: jackson2348 on 05.30.2014 at 07:11 pm in Bathrooms Forum

Hi all, this is ungrouted porcelain Calacatta tile in our master shower. I pored over all the porcelain look-a-likes when I was deciding, so I wanted to give you all a pic.

This is Cote de Este exedra. I believe it's the same manufacturer as the artistic exedra, at least there was no discernable difference in the samples. I'll update with a finished pic, and a floor pic that will be the same tile.

It fooled several people at the slab yard where I was trying to find a quartz for tops until they picked it up and realized it was porcelain.

Is there a warm, white granite/quarzite?

posted by: athenab on 10.21.2012 at 01:52 pm in Kitchens Forum

After getting sticker-shock at the price of 'honed' marble, I have decided to give granite or quarzite a shot. However, every 'white' variation that I see is too cold for my dark (little sunshine) kitchen. All the grays and blues in stones like Super White, or Kashmir White, don't appeal to me. That's why I stayed away from the economically feasible Carrara marble too. Too much gray. Now I am considering going to a non-white stone, such as Colonial Cream. But it's so far from my original vision of the 'look' I wanted.

So, is there a white stone with warmer tones?

Where To Get A Bat Plant ?

posted by: floridabear on 11.30.2008 at 08:06 am in Tropicals Forum

Hi. Does anyone know where I can buy a white, and or a black, Bat Plant? I looked for it online, and all I find are seeds. I want a plant. I find 'rizhomes' on EBay...all from India! I'll really trust a shipment India. And Hirts Gardens has tiny ones,...I bought 1 from them for $10,...it is now dying in less than 5 days. I bought 2 huge flowering ones in 8in pots at Home Depot for about $10,less than a year ago. Now they say they cant get them. I can grow them easily here in Fla. I ignore them and they grow like weeds! But since this last wet season, mine all rotted, much to my surprise, and now I cant find any. I had a white one and a black one. Now all I can find are seeds. This one from Hirts is almost gone already, a tiny plant, in a 2 1/4in pot!, and they wont replace it...unless I return it, for that cost I might as well buy another one from them! And that isnt going to happen.
They won't accept a picture of it,showing the crown rotting already, I have had it for less than 5 days, so it must have arrived already rotting. So...does anyone know of a source? I cant find them anywhere. I don't care the cost...within reason.

What paint to use???

posted by: desperationfalls on 06.09.2009 at 08:36 pm in Ponds & Aquatic Plants Forum

To plant my new lotus in container, I want to paint the inside of this very large ceramic planter black.
What paint can I use which will:
1) Stick to the non-glazed inside (outside is glazed)
2) Not poison the lotus plant
3) Provide some water resistant coating on the inside

Thanks.
Rose

Moss for tropical terrariums

posted by: nuni on 06.16.2008 at 12:43 am in Terrariums Forum

Hi All.

I'm looking for suggestions...I'm starting a terrarium and I want to get a short, mossy ground cover for it. I'm having trouble finding a good match. From some posts I've read, selaginella & sagina like cooler temperatures, and I'm aiming for 70-80 temp with humidity around 70%. Can anyone recommend a moss that would do well in these conditions?

best mini water lily?

posted by: suann1124 on 06.17.2008 at 04:13 pm in Ponds & Aquatic Plants Forum

I'd like to set up a container water garden for my ailing dad, using a 40-gal. plastic stock tank. What small water lily would any of you recommend? Lots of blooms is most important, and fragrance would be great. I've looked at the catalogs, but have no experience with minis or dwarfs.
Thanks!
SuAnn
