I've seen green sands or gravel someplace. I was also thinking how with less then super intense lighting you can grow all other plants fine. So,why not green sands under or between the bigger plants? No worry about shading out the green sands.
Anybody ever tried it? Photo of at least green gravels and live plants?

Sorry, but this feels the same as asking "if our algae come from having more intense light, why not just switch to artificial plants instead?"
Still would be interesting to see the effect. Plus if you're unable to go high tech enough to support a nice carpet and you're just looking for some green edging to a row of crypts it might be a low tech fake it method.

Some things just aren’t good faked. Beautiful scapes can be made without a stitch of carpet. Lower light is only a handicap if the grower allows it to be. Lots of interesting plants can be grown in lower light.
