  1. Got this dwarf chain sword about three weeks ago. Did the root tab in the rock wool trick Cory shared. Already have a runner! Should I trim away the melting leaves? Should I add a root tab at the runner's roots? Any other tips/advice is welcome!
  2. Do I need to use both for dwarf chain swords? Im confused if they just do the same thing, or if one can't be without the other
  3. Hi, I have a dwarf chain sword that has produced 8+ plantlets over the past couple of weeks. I bought this from Aquarium Co-op and planted about 2.5 weeks ago. Beautiful plant. Anyway, I’m real excited about all of this growth but need a little help. I read you should wait until the plantlet(s) are half the size of the mother plant before cutting the the runner and rooting it in the substrate. How would I go about doing this if the first plantlets is now half the size but the plantlets running off it are not. I will put a pic up since it’s hard to explain. Should I just plant all of them? As you can they are not running along the substrate any longer. They started floating up. Please don’t mind the algae. Working on it! Thank you in advance. Lauren Thanks for your help! Hope this all makes sense.
  4. Hello! I planted some Dwarf Chainsword in my 10 gallon in December of last year. They started off pretty great and I had a few runners in the first month of them being in my tank. In late January I separated one of the runners and planted it in the other side of my tank to hopefully get my carpet started over there. Ever since however, none of the chainsword has sent out any runners that I can see. The dwarf chainsword that is currently in the tank appears healthy, and the biggest of the plants is still growing new leaves. My lighting/fertilizing rituals have not changed at all since December. My light is on 7 hours a day and I dose easy green one pump twice weekly to keep around 10-20ppm of Nitrate. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I not being patient enough? I am pretty new to carpeting plants and I am open to any and all advice/suggestions. Thanks! Here is my tank info: 10Gallon, Light is a Nicrew SkyLed Plus at 40% intensity for 7 hours a day (2 hours in the morning and 5 in the evening), Easy green one pump around twice weekly, inert petco gravel with easy root tabs and 9 month of fish/invert waste. Water parameters PH 7.5, KH 2, GH 5, Ammonia/Nitrite 0ppm, Nitrate 10-20ppm.
