Many members have mentioned that they have glosso and ricca in their tanks. I recently purchased a bit of both to experiment with, and did not have much luck. Could someone mention an easy (in my case simple) method to plant this stuff? Glosso, with its small roots and my clumsy fingers..... And how in the world do you keep it down?

Re: Glosso,Ricca & Hairgrass

12" tweezers work good.
Plant 4-5 leaves(Gloss), blades of grass per clump and spread out at 1" intervals. It takes 2-4 weeks for it grow in.

Once they do, you will see them take over.

Riccia is simply tied to a branch or stone, or left floatng

If these are not growing, CO2 and KNO3 are the most likely issue, you do not have enough.
