Black thread works fine, just enough to hold it down; the new roots will quickly affix the plant to wood or rock. Usually I just wrap the roots around the wood or rock, to sort of weigh it down underneath if that makes sense, and the plant quickly attaches itself. B.

Can't help you with that I'm afraid. Too far away.

Use the recommended dose of Flourish the first couple of weeks, only once a week, careful not to overdose. Plants will accustomize to nutrient changes slowly better than sudden. After maybe 3 weeks, if the plants look under-nourished, try a second weekly dose. This has to balance the light and CO2 or algae will take control.

Have fun, and ask us if anything comes up.

Byron.
