Swapping Foregrounds

Tomorrow I might purchase some Micro Sword to replace my out of control HM . . . what are your guy's opinions on Micro Sword? I've heard it spreads very slowly, how would you compare it's growth to that of the HM?

Its much easier to control then HM, HM goes out of control when you have a good amount. Micro Swords is the slowest forground I have grown so far, it start slowly at first but when they have a good grip they will spread at a medium growth speed. Try your hands on some marsilea species, they grow slow/medium speed as well.
