Glosso grows fast but I find it to be a really messy plant. I pulled it from my tank pretty quickly.

If your sole motivation for a fast growing carpet plant is impatience keep in mind that fast growing carpet plants remain fast growing... i.e. they are going to require constant
maintenance after they fill in.

I have been liking my staurogyne repens, grows fairly quickly but is also easy (and not messy) to trim.
