Safe T Sorb and HC/Glosso


Anyone growing these small carpet plants in Safe T Sorb? Any issues getting it to root and stay that way? The substrate seems really light to hold these down.

Thanks!

Shawn

Not much trouble getting it to stay, I just gently push them straight down with the top 80% of the leaves showing.

After they develop their hairline root system they will be fine. I had a mat of glosso growing in SafeTSorb and it was never uprooted.

HC might be a different story, I've always hated planting HC that wasn't DSM.
