I guess whatever works for ya ? Personally I find DSM very troublesome; I'd just ramp up the CO2 in a fish-less tank (DSM would have been dry anyway) and let things run. I find planting in smaller...

Has it been in there longer than a week? If so, and you're dosing proper EI, you lack either light or CO2 or both (stunted new growth). Healthy R. Rotundifolia would be pinkish in good lighting.
