I use it in my newly established tank, and so far so good. It's VERY light so definitely anchor small plants to a rock or another medium when planting, otherwise Corydoras and other bottom fish might relocate them for you.
It keeps my water right at about 6.2 ph, roots easily navigate through it, and it also stays incredibly clean which baffles me. I am wondering if I could cap it off, sort of how people do with miracle grow Substrate and top off with sand, just because I'd like to plant a carpet of some sort and the lightness of the substrate is proving annoying
Excuse my amateur aquascaping skills; I'm new to planted tanks and came from the reef world, so I would have gone without the sand bed in the middle and went for a more natural look with lots of negative space if I had to do it over again
