    I looked into Luffy Glossostigma Salatigasis a while back. A lot of what I read on it is that it needs to be started in moist soil and there isn’t a lot of luck starting it in water. People usually lay substrate in an empty tank, keeping the substrate moist until it takes off and then filling up the tank with water. Reading reviews like that turned me off of it because I’m impatient, but perhaps someone here has experience growing it in a filled tank. Edit: realized you were talking about Hygrophilas and I have some growing in my new tank but I got mine as cuts and didn’t start from seed. Mine are Hygrophila Araguaia and remind me of wild grass or mini corn stalks. Ha ha.

    So you think it would be a better idea to get cuttings, instead of seeds? :)
