How long have you had it bniebetta? It might still be in the stage of "die off" and will grow back once it's used to the water.

Let's see.... I think it has been in there exactly one week today. Yeah, I really hope that's it haha I am going to give it a few more weeks and see what it does before I rip it out and curse it. It kind of seems that way from the few wisps of that young green color sticking out. Most of the other things are kind of in that stage right now, with the exception of the water wisteria which is unusually happy.

Okay, that's good. Just let it run it's course then and it should come back soon.

Thanks

Another question: I am doing a multi-tank 5g start up I would like to get the grass to spread to use it in more than one tank and keep a little behind to continue grow more. I am thinking of putting it with the gravel I would use in the tank and growing it in a sterilite container. Will it easily move once it's ready? Will it disturb the cycle very much if I install after the tank is cycled?

never had luck with DDHG myself, if you aren't noticing any new growth and it keeps browning out like that id pitch it and try something different. from what ive experienced its either been not enough light or co2 or a combination of the two.

I bought the same Top-fin pack that I left it in it's package for a month on a windowsill. I then moved it to separate container for a while. I simply planted it in gravel a week ago. It is growing. It floated up two days ago and showed developing roots. I put it back down with a few gravels to help weigh it. I use slight Seachem ferts. Tank is on a windowsill w/southern exposure.
