I'm surprised it stays moist enough for the glosso.

So was I. He has a humidity tray so I guessing that makes the difference. Maybe he can take an updated pic for everyone.

Did you go straight from high humidity emmersed to very low humidity on your tree?

I wonder if HC would be a good ground cover candidate. That'd be sweet.

Yes, I've been misting it a few time a day as well. I'm expecting most to melt, but hopefully it will recover. Glosso is fairly weedy.

Try it. HC would be sweet. I was thinking the same, but I didn't have any to use.

I'll post it. It looks much better now. Hopefully Tom will chime in.

The Gloss you saw in my 120 Gal was living in a Ficus bonsai for 2 years, then I added it to my tank.

hate to break it to you, and i may be completely wrong here. but im pretty really almost 99% sure thats NOT glosso! there are weeds and other terrestrial plants that look like that, and in tom's climate, i HIGHLY doubt that its glosso.

Yeah, the leaves are too fine to be glosso.

Yeah, it's too "strandy," if you will. Here's a super cropped pic.

The Olive tree has only a weed and then moss.
The weed I hate, but it's good for some sediments that are tough to get a ground cover.
Gloss does very well, I'd imagine HC would also.

Wow! How did you acclimate it to the dry environment?
