In my 10g i have one side gravel and the other side ADA soil. my question is can I plant the hygrophila stricta in the gravel? or i need to move some of the ADA soil there before planting?

I would put a root tab around them for some nutrients if you plant it in the gravel.

Don't forget the potassium with that plant.

P.S. where did you find that plant, I can't find it anywhere.

It's ok all he have to do is ship to California and the military mail service will take over from there. Thank you for the link.

Once it hit cali how long would it take to reach you? Typically after 3-4 days in the mail alot of plants start to go down hill especially with super high or low temps.

i decided not to order from them after seeing that they were in Malaysia...Shipping to California and then back to Japan would take too long.
