Fissidens geppi care

I'm looking for any tips on caring for or propagating fissidens geppi. The seller advised against blending it as part of dry starting. He's grown it only immersed so this dry start will be an experiment.

29g high tech, 10g low tech halfmoon, and please see my 5g crescent journal.

Geppi grows extremely slow... I suggest not doing the grinding up technique with this moss.

How does it propagate? How can I encourage it to spread laterally?

It'll grow like any moss so its hard for it to spread horizontally than vertically

Any estimates on how long it would take such a slow grower to attach to rocks using DSM?

Current plan is for a four week grow out period before flooding. I'd hate for it to float away.

It'll attach within a week or two. You'll be fine by the end of week four.
