Unlike moss, I don't believe the riccia will ever attach. Some people love it, and use a scrubbie or hair net to wrap it around a rock or something to make a riccia "bush". I'm in the group that...

With a dwarf lily, you typically just lay the bulb on the substrate and let it grow roots. I didn't really see a bulb there, so maybe it's a daughter plant, in which case weighing it down with plant...

What is the chemical replacement for fluorish excel?

I've got a 75, and even tough I don't remember everyday, that little bottle empties quickly.

Thanks,...
