Flourite & HC

Have Just planted some more HC in my 29 Gal in yet another bid to grow this in flourite, the last time it just never spread. Has anyone out there achieved the "carpet effect" with HC in Flourite??

I was able to carpet some HC in Flourite. It takes a while to get a grip. You can't spread it apart too much either. Put some on top of the gravel and sprinkle some Flourite on it.

Same experience here. It took forever to get going though. I spread it out into nickle sized pieces and then put a small plant weight or a little flourite on top to keep it down. Once it took root it spread and stayed down well.
