Well, I am getting lots of good growth. The hydrocotyle is really taking off. The swords are just starting to put out new leaves, the DHG is putting out runners. Only thing I am worried about at this point is algae in my HC tubs. Its cyanobacteria ontop of the soil. Any ideas how to get rid of it?
Another note - I wish I hadn't used potting soil. I should have used some inert material, like gravel, or expanded clay balls, and fertilized from the water. Would have been a lot easier. The soil is really going to take a long time to leech out the tannins and nitrates. Doubtful if I will be able to have fish.
