I don't know of anyone who grows it locally, it's pretty tough to get it growing. I think most people who have success with it start it with immersed growth then have high co2 and nutrients afterwards. plantedtank.net has people selling it pretty regularly. Best of luck getting some, it's such a cool plant.

Besides the CO2, I'd recommend mixing sand with the gravel, or using sand alone. The spaces between gravel are just too large to hold this plant in place, and it ends up floating.

I don't do any special tests on my plant tanks. I just recommend changing water.

Just remember when he says change your water, he is not saying from liquid to a solid! :lol:
