Nope, not mondo grass. Although, that sounds like grass that's... Big???

Anywho, sorry I passed out last night before I could respond.

Here is the "Planted Group"...


And the "Floating Group"...


Both just melting away like ice cream on a blazing hot day...

Ay! Ok! Haha, I took them out this last time so I could bundle the planted group better, they were drooping pretty bad. Now they will stay put! I just got back from a new Petco that recently opened near my apt to hopefully pick up some Flourish but came out empty handed cause they don't got it. They do have Plant Gro made by Nutrafin. Any opinions on how they compare?

All your problems solved, don't buy cheap ferts!

I would also recommend getting Potassium, Flourish is only micros, not macros. You could get Nitrogen as well...

Post Update

So here's an update on the bacopa...

Both groups, planted and floating continue to melt its leaves. Something I did notice though, is that the healthiest leaves in both groups are at the most superior end where new shoots are growing.

Here is the planted group...


And here is the floating group....
