Depends on your budget, I guess.

A small grain substrate would be best. I've seen beautiful lawns of HC kept in anything from 3M ColorQuartz to ADA AS, Fluorite, EC, etc...

Most of my experience is with ADA AS and I have to say it grows quickly in a high-light/tech tank w/ ADA AS.

It really does grow quite easily. I do have to say though, it is very picky about substrate if it is going to stay down. Find something with a small grain. So far, sand has worked best for me.
