opposable thumbs for the win :)

Maybe its because I just use gravel. I have some wallichii that comes unstuck now and again, but like ive said, the L method hasnt failed me yet, and im cutting and replanting my red ludwigia every few weeks.

I've never had an issue either with stems. If you need to bury the lower first few leaves. Eventually you will get the hang of it. I use my hand to plant them, never bothered with tweezers or anything.

I can plant stems so my caecilian doesn't knock them loose
