Haha thanks, and I love the bowl too. It keeps me entertained while I wait for the tank to grow.
I've been really tempted to flood these past few days. Like you said, the plants aren't supporting themselves very well so I've moved and arranged how they laid on top of each other to make sure light is hitting evenly. I really can't flood yet because the stems I've laid out on the ground still hasn't rooted to the substrate yet, but once they do I definitely will! I can't wait, it's going to look nice.
How long do you think it will take for the plants to take sufficient hold onto the substrate?
