ok.
wt water level u kept in the start ?

borneosucker 07-24-2009 04:58 AM

if you see the videos, my 1st 1 actually, the initial water level is just on the surface of the substrate....if u wan to grow them emersed, most important the substrate must be moist....but funny thing is, the glosso grow upwards in emersed form....however that was not what I wanted to acheived, so after one week emersed I fill up the tank untill the plants are fully covered, and the standing glossos now start to bow...lol, interesting plant.
