I can only find Monte Carlo and Gratiola Viscidula as tissue cultures.

I know these will not take to my lava rock substrate (think Eco-Complete) in my flooded and mature aquarium, so I'm thinking of growing them out a bit in a pot on my window ledge.

I would fill pot with 500g of ADA Amazonia Powder, keep very wet, and place on my window ledge - Malaysia average day time temp. 32C, average night time temp 25C, average humidity 80%.

Hoping they would grow out a bit and become suitable for replanting in my tank after a week or two?

Does this sound like it might work ?

No.

That didn't work at all.

Growth was somewhere between minimum and zero.

I'm guessing it's simply to hot outside.

Saved what I could and planted it in my substrate.
