Glosso worries, any help?


I tried searching through past posts for answers, thought I'd ask in a new thread.
I have 110w (10k bulb and pink plant grow bulb (6000 kelvin))and an led strip for my 55gal.
I have gravel flourite mixed and root tabs.
I only use DIY CO2 and a dose of excel every day.
I've only had my glosso for two days and it seems okay, I'm just wondering if I'll ever get a plush carpet or if it's going to need more? Any Glosso experience out there?

it grows shoot under gravel so you probley wont see anything till the leaves poke threw the substrate. make sure you planted it deep to the point where only the top 2 leaves are above substrate. i would run the co2 every day. just me. also you should keep the edges of the patch trimmed as it grows tall in low light like under other plants. i run a razor blade threw the substrate an inch before the carpet meets the other plants and pull out any thing past my carpet parimater
