Hello!



I have had my tank planted for about a month. The plants are growing really well but not taking root. If I nudge them they will float up & I have to try to replant then manage to knock another one loose.



I was thinking root tabs might help or possibly just time! Really hope I don't need to change the substrate!



Thanks for your thoughts!

Sometimes the bottoms of stem plants die off- especially after shipping. Try planting the part of the stem that you know is alive slightly under the substrate. It should put out roots.

Substrate is flora max & the plant with the most trouble is bacopa.
