Thanks again everyone! It really does pick me up when I see such great feedback!

Fusion, I am doing an emersed/dry start. I think the hardwater stain along the top of the tank gives the illusion it is flooded. (i bought the tank used)

Day 8 update
As expected, not too much to report, i can see the roots of the HC starting to dig into the substrate as well as fresh tiny leaflets. There is a tiny bit of yellowing of some of the HC. The DHG has few random new blades popping up, and a few blades are yellowing. So far, things are moving along as expected. Hoping to see some better HC crawling this week!

New pic has been added to the first post of the thread.

Thank you Hetzer!

More and more DHG blades are sprouting, the HC is crawling, and its roots are getting deeper!

You are a far more patient man that I. Looks great.

I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure.

Thanks fellas!

Quick question, I noticed some of my DHG is browning, I have one bunch that has nearly browned itself completely out (top back right corner). I do notice some fresh sprouts in the very center of it though, should I trim down the brown pieces in the hopes of it encouraging new runners? Btw, I notice that there are fresh new blades popping up randomly every morning!

The soil is plenty moist, and the humidity is consistent, I am thinking that because that area is basically the deepest/highest point of substrate, maybe it kind of dried out midway through?
