its been 3 and 1/2 weeks since setup and now going to put some pics of some individual plants.

pinnatifidas not getting direct light/moderate light will have lighter leaves.like this:they will however grow like normal chaps otherwise...

in areas with direct exposure they turn red purplish.......

and rocks do support variety of plants apart from mosses.

its indeed not a fast grower IMO.I think its amongst the slowest amongst all hygrophilas which includes another slow to medium candidate-the araguaias .
the best thing that could make these grow faster if not fast is IMO good light,CO2 and K+ as usual and its runners are fsat not the mother stem.i have seen trimming will induce faster growth of side shoots and runners.
but trim only new runners are formed.

Tank temperatures down to 24 avg with fans after weather improvement all over the subcontinent.The season begins from here.ferns have just started growing healthily which is a good sign.
