Capping Safe T Sorb with BDBS?

Has anyone tried having Safe T Sorb at the bottom for taking advantage of its high CTC and capping it with BDBS for carpeting plants?

Hi @GeorgeGy

It would likely work for a while but because BDBS is substantially heavier than STS so eventually the BDBS would end up moving toward the bottom and the STS to the top.

Yeah. Thatís what I was thinking too. Makes sense. Just wanted the sanity check.

Thanks!
