How do you plant HC?

416 1
I bought 3 potted HC's last week and broke each one into 4 smaller pieces and planted it. Did I do this correctly? I have also heard that you should pull them apart into stems and plant.

I know it sounds tedious, but the best way is to separate the plants into small, individual pieces (1-3 stems per piece, 2-3cm long). You then take a foreceps and plant each of these pieces into the substrate so that half of the stem is planted.

The way you've planted your tank will work (eventually). But, if you are going for a nice, even carpet, you'll need to put in the extra effort I've mentioned. You're not alone; we've all done it ;).
