On the AR Mini, how tall does yours grow untrimmed? I bought some TC AR Mini and it was clearly purchased and labeled as Mini, but untrimmed it grows upwards of 7", so not what I wanted. Tank looking good, BTW.
I am not the one to ask about any AR.
For some reason, I have just never done well with it.
But with the change to soil, thought I would give it a go again. Have both AR Mini and Variegated right now. Both are fairly new to the tank, so really don't know about how tall either might get. Or even if they will be keepers.
In the past they have always been very prone to algae on old growth. Not sure exactly why? Too much light? Too many ferts? Too much bio load from the Bows? Heck, I don't know.
And right now it's too early to tell if things will be any different. Both went through usual rough patch after travel and going into a new tank. I've been leaving them in place to let them establish. I did pull one and the root system was getting very well developed and nice and white, which should be a good sign.
But really too early to say if things will be different this time. It's funny, I can grow a lot of "difficult" plants, but a few "easy" ones like AR and S. Repens always give me the hardest time.
One of the many mysteries of the planted tank.
