I've been looking for a carpet plant in every LFS
I could find and dwarf baby tears were the ones
I could only find. I don't know if I'll be able to grow
them in an outside tank. I know it needs co2 and
high light, but would it be able to survive in an
outside tank that gets 10 hours of light a day?
My substrate will be Eco-complete with osmocote.
Since my LFS sells only like 4 strands for $5, I'll
need to grow it fast, so I'll be using the dry start
method. I have some questions though.
1. If I use 1 inch of MTS, and 3 cm of gravel,
would they be ok? (not using sand)
2. Everyday I will have to add water to it right?
How much? I'll be growing it in a 10 gal.
3. Once it grows enough, I can just take it and put
in the main tank? ( can I just lay it on the substrate or do I have to cover the roots?)
4. Can they withstand temps of 40F during the night?
Sorry for so many questions, I didn't want to throw $5 down
