Most people have a water level just under the soil surface, then with repeated spraying it will slowing rise, I syringe mine out weekly.Water level above the substrate? I didn't think you were supposed to put any water in at all apart from a mist. Read so many conflicting guides.
I misted the soil, then planted. Humidity is showing 99% after being covered for a few hours so going to leave a small gap for air open overnight and see how that goes
Yep replant any cutting and they should do OK.Anyone also know if you can dry start Monte Carlo with cuttings? I got some potted instead of tissue culture and the stems are very long. Could easy trim them and lay the cuttings on the soil to double my coverage, but would they root?
And would I lay them or bury half the stem?
Both work wellAnd would I lay them or bury half the stem?
Light is a Kessil A360x running 70% intensity and 70% colour for about 13 hours a day.Over 2 weeks I’d expect significant growth for plants such as MC, UG is much more variable
If you’re not seeing much growth, I’d query light levels
Both work well

Mist the entire tank, leaves included.
