  1. 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.
  2. I am setting up a new tank and will move some of my Val. Do I cut the runner at the mother plant end? New plant? And do I leave it hanging off or cut it off entirely and toss it? I’m not sure if it propagates from the same runner or if it melts back. I have regular jungle Val and dwarf that have both sent several runners and I’ll be trimming and moving.
  3. Crypt spiralis spreading around. The on in the back on the left is the original, the right is it's first offspring and now there's one in the front.
  4. My sword plant has sent a runner out and I would like to make sure that I plant the baby plants correctly. I am thinking that once the baby plants have four or five roots that I can trim the runner on each side of the baby plant and plant them with a root tab or two. Does this sound about right to those in the know?
