I use 100% Flourite and EI dose so I presume I have enough phosphorus.

HybridHerp Seriously, I need help with this plant lol

One thing I just tried though, is I shoved some into steel mesh that is meant more for moss....and it fit, and its keeping it all down in the substrate, and I am happy :P

Do you guys clip the side shoots and then replant them, or do you just let them sideshoot all day long until it becomes a massive bush thing?

pirayaman mine roots like crazy in just flourite it rooted like crazy. i have dirt with flourite cap right now.
no root tabs either just api iron and potassium and flourish
i cant even say enough good about flourite. every plant i ever had rooted so thick in this stuff its like super soil. if you want to start a tank with it just mix your water ferts in a bucket with the flourite and it will absorb it and be fertilized let it sit over night and then plant a tank works great

tomfromstlouis Tell me how to get it to grow roots. Mine look similar but rarely seem to get much in the way of root structures. Even after weeks anchored in the substrate my largest piece has zero roots. Nevertheless it grows and even multiplies, but I wish I could keep it in place without extra effort.
