I have 2.... "frags".. of HC in my planted tank. The one I've attached to my driftwood closer to the lights seems to be doing quite well, with pearling, etc. The other one is growing a bit more slowly (it pearls a little, but not as much as the one that's closer to the lights). So, I'm thinking of expediting the process a bit and growing it emersed, but out of the tank.
I have very little terrestrial plant growing experience, but here's what I'm planning (attempting to save money by using stuff I already have):
1) Fill the long pot on my window sill with miracle gro "moisture control" potting soil.
2) Taking little bits of HC and placing them evenly.
3) Water with old fishtank water daily to keep the soil moist and the HC fertilized beyond what the soil can do.
4) Once the pot has filled in with HC, take out about 3/4s of it (evenly) and let it grow in again.
This window gets about 4 hours of direct morning sun, and weakish indirect light for the rest of the day.
Does this sound like it would let HC grow fast enough to be worthwhile?
