In my 29g tank with DIY CO2
, 65w CF
, EI dry ferts, rather large gravel substrate I have Hemianthus micranthemoides growing. My original plan was for it to grow a carpet an inch or 2 high. Well its getting out of control. It nor runs the entire length of the tank, about 5" from the front glass back, and is about 6" tall! It is a massive block, literally, of Hemianthus micranthemoides. It is all green(even the stuff closest to the substrate), but I don't know why. It is so ridiculously thick that I have no clue how the lower parts of the plant get any light.
How can I keep it down to about 2"?
Other plants in the tank include:
a few various crypts, najas, anacharis, a bundle of rotala rotundofilia I'm trying to save, narrow leaf java fern(huge!), java moss, and Myriophyllum mattogrossense.
