Very large HC carpet? Am I crazy?
Hi everyone. I'm planning out a new tank, and was thinking of making HC Cuba the primary carpeting plant. It will be roughly 4 sq feet in total.
I'm not so concerned about being able to grow it; in fact, it's quite the opposite. I'm looking forward to the challenge. My concern is actually, what it if grows really well? I've read a lot of people say that the maintenance can be brutal, and you can't let it get too tall without it lifting out of the substrate.
Assuming I get it growing really well, with high lighting, 30ppm CO2, and EI dosing, how often does this need to be trimmed? Am I just a glutton for punishment, and I'm going to be spending 2 hours a week doing nothing but trim HC?
If you ever think you're too small to make a difference, spend a couple of nights sleeping with a mosquito.
