lmao right? It casts a shadow over all the others. An outlier if I've ever seen one. I feed it Maxsea 1/2 tsp per gallon once a week fine, light mist. and a box of wheaties per day. I experimented with some of my others that I didn't plant before. Filifolia Giant and Guehoi, as well as more aquatica. I think the weak mother plant (aquatica)is dying off so it's all propagation now. I had complications with the mixture, added some water and let it sit roughly 40 hours anywhere from 300-500ppm. I thought I roasted them but I saw my first sprouts from the other plants today. Unfortunately I don't think I have enough light on the back end of the tray so I think only half the pots will germinate. Still, it was a success. The Aquaticas of mine have taken much longer than the others. They creep out but they grow pretty vigorously once they do move.

No I haven't given them bloodworms yet. Sometimes I'll do that at random but not on the seedlings. Tbh, I have a lot of sprouts all over the place and I would get lazy. When they're so small, feeding them would be tedious. I do like to give bloodworms as an interim boost between fertilizing. When they go uncovered, I'll start doing it. They'll mold up in the conditions they're in. I would imagine its a lot safer though.
