Glosso


I just recently bought glosso a couple days ago and it wasn't what I think it was. It sort of looked like duck weed, I was trying to put it in my tank in a carpet foreground like but the roots were long and i wasn't sure how to make a carpet like of glosso.

Does anybody know what I can do to make the glosso look more like a foreground plant?

wait a bit, put it together in a clump at the bottom, and let a few more plantlets grow. then, cut individual runners with 3 sets of leaves, and plant the roots in so that only the leaves show... plant 'em 2 inches apart, they will keep spreading along both cut ends.

theres a link somewhere, look up glosso question under my posts
