I forgot to mention that the tank my mini-pellia is in does have CO2... so yeah, expect an even slower growth.
If you have it tied down properly from the start, it shouldn't get messy. Unless of course, your fauna decides to tear it up, then of course, it'll get messy. But it can and does grow nicely if undisturbed :-)
