Your having amazing results, sorry about the cardinals btw. I just started a similar setup last week but now am kicking myself for not ever even hearing about tissue cultured plants. I am experiencing a lot of melting with my HC, half of each portion planted so far. They are adjusting to being submerged I guess.

Also, I battled with BBA for a long time, it actually caused me to give up a few years back. Ended up just having a 120g driftwood biotope for my discus instead. Now I'm back and trying plants on a smaller scale separate 20g tank.

Anyway, thanks for such a detailed journal, it's helping me already!

I'm using GLA Ultimate GH booster now. I quite prefer it to Equilibrium it's not as "dirty" and dissolves much better. I believe that has K2sO4, CaSO4, and MgSO4 in it.

I'm sure it will turn out well. My HC had no change for a few weeks when I first planted and then it just took off.
