way to much hc

I recently bought two pots of hc for my tank, thinking that it would be just enough, turns out it was overkill. Will hc take root and grow when there is so much of it?

It will take root better if you separate the clumps into smaller pieces.

I seperated them into mostly clumps of 3 little strands. Do you know approximately how long they will take to take root?

It could take up to a few weeks in my experience, then once acclimated, it will take off (assuming good tank conditions). Just keep high light and lots of co2!
