Bubbs,

I tried an anubias and javafern hydroponic setup. I experimented with the substrate. Some were in cocofiber, some were without any substrate. All the plants were ok, though the growth rate was slower than I expected. It seemed like the plants in cocofiber were growing better and rooting better. Compared to my other emersed stem and running plants in soil though, their growth was slow. I think the complication with using an inert substrate is that you would need to fertilize properly. If you have access to the right fertilizer, growth can be phenomenal (I've heard). With regular potting soil, growth will not be as fast though you won't have to worry about nutrient deficiencies.
