Fastest growth, ADA soil for max nutrients through their roots, 10x EI to be sure everything is in the water as well. No livestock and very high CO2.

I tried this within the limits of livestock and made Ceratophyllum demersum grow 10 cm (4 inch) a day! Also Glossostigma and Riccia are good candidates if you want max growth.

Max light, light is like the acceleration pedal of growth, CO2 will be limited first, so make sure that is as high as possible. You probably need another CO2 kit, or need to replace the cartridge daily.

PS. Contact Tom Barr, he did this experiment 30 years ago, which led to EI...
