Dwarf Hair Grass

Does dwarf hair grass grow faster and healthier with substrate fertilization or water column dosing?

substrate fertilization is better.
but a substrate high in nutrients AND water column dosing is the best.

haha thats why i started this thread i keep hearing both, but since i have pool filter sand i guess it will be more practical to dose the water column than to add oscomote ice cubes to the entire tank. right?

Throw some root tabs under the sand near the DHG and dose liquids, I'm sure you'll have runner city in a matter of 2 weeks.

thanks for the replies everyone. When the plant is well established and is spreading, should i continue to add root tabs?
