- If received in a pot, please remove all rock wool from the roots. Where possible we try and ship without pots or rockwool. Due to them being non-biodegradable we prefer to propagate in an environmentally conscious way.
- CO2 will generally yield better growth rates.
- Stable water conditions are a must, changes should occur over a period of time in order to reduce chances of melting etc.
