I did and showed everyone at the AGA meeting so as well.
Plain old sand and water column ferts.
Also grew well in sand + kitty litter.

A little soil under the sand and no water column fertilizers also works. I've used this method for five species of hairgrass, acicularis, parvula, quadrangulata, montevidensis, and a local species I haven't ID'd yet, I have to wait for the flower head. I also have two more varieties I found at the nursury this year that I'll be playing around with in the fall. I'm letting them flower at the moment as well.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".

They will die, so just collect them the best you can and toss 'em.

On the Communication thing: You're here for Help. People are willing to Help You. But if You really don't care--Why should We? Your Posts are Your only representative....

Check out this Guy:

Is that even English? Joined on the 12th and hasn't been back since the 13th. Obviously he doesn't care. Why should I? Make things easy on Yourself--by making them easy on us....

Folks with answers often see those careless posts--and just keep moving....
