How much aquasoil for 4 gallons?

Wasn't sure if one 3L bag would be enough for a 4 gallon tank. Also, would the powder version benefit me in terms of planting/rooting? I plan to use hc and dhg.

It should be enough. In my 4 gallon, I have between 2 and 3 inches of soil in the bottom and it's been plenty.

3 liters will be more than enough...

I have "normal" Amazonia in my 37, and a mixture
of that and the "powder" in my Mini-M. I like them
both, and both hold roots well enough... but I prefer
the *look* of the mixture in the smaller tank.
