tips on planting dhg belem please


I'm getting 4 2x2 squares in the next day or two and I'm already worried about getting it to root. My substrate is half eco-complete, half regular pet shop gravel. Can I plant deeply and lift after a while? Thanks in advance for your advice.

Seperate in smaller pieces..if you have fish plant it just a little deeper...itll be fine and they will grow towards the light...plant close together if you want it to fill in faster...be prepared to be standing there awhile...

i recommend using plant tongs or tweezers and gently twirl the plant into the substrate rather plop
