S repens and DHG...

I can officially say that I am finally be able to grow S repens, on my third try. Heheheh.... Maybe the combinations of high, high CO2 and dirt substrate did the tricks. They are growing right now after 3 weeks. Out of 30+ stems, only about 7 of them experienced leaves melting. BBA is under control on them for now. I am dosing 2x excel daily with close to 50ppm of CO2 until the plants are more established and showing more growth.

My DHG carpet is also growing and it has been doing fine for the past 4 months. Some of the runners are spreading to the side of the S repens. I assume there shouldn't be any issues with them growing together??? Should I uproot the DHG and to replant them somewhere else?

no issues I can think of. it may eventually end up looking sloppy if they mix too much and that will be annoying to deal with
