I'm currently doing the dsm on my planted 10g. And I used Seachem . Do I need to add something under the to help the plants to grow or will they be fine with the sand?
What does inhomogenously mean ? Do you mean put it on top of the sand ?
If I already put the sand down is it worth removing the monte carlo I'm trying to grow and the sand then putting it on top of potting mix?
I'll be adding c02 in a couple weeks anyways so hopefully it should be fine. Thanks!I wouldn't bother. Plenty of people here and in other forums have grown Monte Carlo fine in inert gravel. In fact it's easier to do MC with gravel in a dry start as it otherwise tends to just float out of the substrate when it's just been new planted in a tank filled with water. I didn't use a dry start and I literally had to shove it into the gravel and pile some of the substrate onto the sides to keep it down.
But otherwise I'd just stick a couple of root tabs and/or mist with a dilute macro/mix solution.
