Cheap shipping and this current weather don't mix well. Cheap shipping is going to equal slow shipping.

Pay the money and get it as quickly as you can.

I've never even grown glosso, let along ordered it from online. My guess is that it would grow easier in Ecocomplete, 'cause getting it to root down in 2-3 mm gravel might be a lot tougher.

As far as my readings go, I gather that 6700K is optimal for plant growth. The Dual Daylight is probably a good one, too.

Good advice from Rex on paying for the decent shipping, esp. summertime!

I would go with SunPaq Dual Daylight 6700K/10000K. Eco-Complete is fine just make sure you have some CO2 when you are dealing with that amount of light.
