    I have seen you use green gecko quite often in your tanks. I too have allot of this plant and was hoping it would be a nice mid-ground fill in. My plants always grow flat to the substrate and no more then 2" high very healthy but not like I thought they were supposed to do. I need these plants to grow 4-8" tall like I see you're doing. Any tips to make them grow a little taller?

    Plant them really close to each other. That will force them to grow upright.

    you could also reduce your photo period or intesity. i was experiencing the same thing and had 4 t-5's and reduces to 2 and after reducing photo period from 11 hrs to 8 my gecko's are about 3 to 4 inches and quite thick. hope this helps
