I do want some foreground plants.. but I wanted to wait until i got the bigger ones in and a bit more established..
I haven't thought much about livestock yet.. I have ideas..but again, since Im so new to plants and co2 Im taking it slow..
You know how often we hear that around here? Almost NEVER! Kudos!!!! :biggrin:
If you spread out your stem plants a bit more, you can help make sure more light is getting to the bottom of the stems. If you don't, they'll shed the leaves at the bottom and start looking all "leggy."
If you trim back some of your longer stems and replant them, most stem plants will start sending out branches right underneath the cut. Keep trimming and replanting the new stem an inch or two from the parent, and that's how you end up with nice "bushes."
