U r welcome, but the name sounds like Greek to me, hope this info will help you find what you need. BTW, is it ok to plop the whole thing into the substrate since the gel is safe for fish?

Thanks

It's better to tear it into about 3 or 4 sections and place them 1 inch to 1 1/2 inches appart from each other so that over a month or so it will fill in to make a nice carpet. but if course if you don't want the carpet than sure. I would clean the gel out anyway, I didn't do it my first time and I was constantly picking out gel pieces as they floated by in the tank. It also clogged my filter a bit too. Also trimming the roots will inspire new and faster growth in any plant :)

Haha, Tank cleaning/rescaping/buying things is my Saturday! If I actually happen to have money for next week I'm definitely going back to get some more, I don't have any yet in my 33!

They didn't have any. Just the usual line up of tube plants. I suppose I should be relieved.

All to better deceive you with! haha

Actually it's my Petsmart that has the DHG, my Petco doesn't have much in the line of the tube/bagged plants. We still have a very lovely looking tank filled with plants but it's been redone so there aren't many snails yet or moss overtaking the tank haha

My DHG all turned yellow in my tank! Is it because I didn't separate it enough and kind of stuck it in the sand in a few big bunches? There is like one really long green stalk coming out of it, though.

Hmmm, pictures please? Do you use ferts because they need at least liquid ferts to grow properly. I have some that hasn't been growing but it hasn't died on me yet either nor has it turned brown.

they are grown emersed, they will yellow a bit because you just submerse them. They would come back if you have enough light for the species.

when plants transition from emerse to submersed they do thru a transition period, sometimes losing leaves, melting a bit, or turning yellow.
