    I bought a few of these from AE when they were first released, really like the plant, I didn't do much with it beside breakdown into 3 pieced and stick in the sand, is there a better way of planting it? I'm thinking of using it as a foreground plant instead of Glosso so I dont have to add pressurised co2, should I break down into individual stems and plant like taht?

    Yes, break into individual stems.

    Does best in nutrient-rich substrate. Good CO2, ferts and med-high light will speed up growth but they're not essential.

    Thanks for the reply, was starting to think no one else has grown any :wideyed:

    Only thing I'm not doing is the pressurised co2 but have all other factors:)

    Good luck with it. Great plant.

    it does look great, even just chucked in its doing great, will let them grow a bit more then pull them and split down some more :D can the individual stems be cut down to decrease the lengths???? some are quite long

    Yes, you can be quite brutal with it.

    Most plants do best after good prune BTW. Sharp scissors though.

    I have mine in the tank but didn't separate it at all, just planted it as I took it from the pot.

    I split mine and planted individual stems 1" apart. trimmed all back to 1 set of leaves and planted the tops.
    2 weeks later and all gaps are filled and i think i will need to trim in a week or two.
