I'm going to try something idk if it's been done here, a HC growth log with photos. Emersed in a new shrimp tank that i'm going to be upgrading in size from a 5g to 15g.

Starting with a picture taken from slightly aback.

Just so you see, the tank on the right is the current shrimp tank.

Then the slightly zoomed in one to which the rest will also be taken. I'll be updating it every day till i get a nice carpet.

The greens don't look very green but up close it's nicer.

If you're doing dry start, you should try to break up the clumps more to help it spread faster.
I broke them up quite a bit already, there are several mixed in there that are single sprigs, which you would need to zoom in to see, the sample I bought from BA's was quite small spent about half an hour breaking it down, was from a small pot. I've never had much success with HC before so i'm hoping this time getting it rooted in the final aquarium i'll have more luck.
