Cool project Caleb. I've seen a lot of people do dry-starts on things like star repens, and other plants for a few weeks and then slowly flood the tank. Wish I had the extra coin to spend on a proper substrate and some plants!

I just used stuff laying around the house and plants I already owned lol. We will see how it goes.

Nice! I'll say though, dracaena is not an aquatic plant.

I'm no plant expert. Some it it's doing great others not to much. I'm spreading it out because it became a forest and the lower leaves were browning from not enough light. I'll keep you in mind for it though because it grows like crazy. I just want to restore to health first. Who wants a browning plant to coming the mail? Lol
