Here's what i did, and it's working great here -
Mix your laterite with peat, tank mulm and fine silica sand. Spread this about 1" thick across the tank bottom then cover with your gravel. In my case I used coarse blasting sand instead of gravel.
Other than adding some fert pellets under my Crypts, thats all I did, and am getting great root production from stems as well as a glosso/hairgrass/dwarf sag mixed carpet. IMO just as good or better then my old Flourite tank.
