    1-to 2 hours you should see pearling, the latest will be about 3-4 hours.
    Depends on other factors, if those are good, then that is what you should see.

    Re: pearling

    So do you have pearling or?
    Decent current will provide decent pearling, some have said that the pearling is reduced by high current, but good current and flow(eg a 125gph in a 20 gal tank with a spray bar and some surface movement causes the tank to pearl like nuts) should not influence it that much.

    i have strong current in my tank (spray bar, with powerful filter), and my plants pearl almost all day while swaying in the current.
