OK what is it.....there is Ricca mixed into it.
And if anyone ever wants some it grows like crazy, I throw it away and it is mixed with Ricca. I'm low right now but in the future~~~~~

If you've got a decent amount of light, or dry start the tank you can get a nice looking carpet out of it. It can also be used to make a big bushy plant, midground, compliments HC pretty nicely if I may say so myself.

I think HM is a little too bushy to be a good carpet plant. This is HM in an old overgrown scape of mine. Its the big bush on the right. That big fat lump of HM is what you can be growing right now. Imagine the overgrown possibilities. HC is much smaller and tends to stay more substrate-hugging in my experience.

HM for sure. I have trimmed enough of it to know in about .000032 seconds.

It is a great plant. My 29 gallon which actually has somewhat new pics has it for part of the carpet. My 10, no new pictures in a long time, I just let it grow nice bushes. It is easy to shape, takes well to pruning it to what you want but can grow a bit to fast for my tastes in good condition.
