I have not really worked at flowering plants but I get to tick another one off the list. Woo Hoo!

It was grown in a plastic food tray about 6 inches from a flourescent strip light. The medium was a layer of Jiffy peat covered with Profile.

I read that too but haven't been able to see it so far. I've moved this patch of glosso which is about 25x25cm to a plastic box that is much bigger. So, I it hope will keep spreading and flowering until I can corner the market on emersed glosso.

I was growing it just to see what would happen mainly. I was hoping for flowers and got them all throughout the growth. No seeds as of yet.

I'd say from the initial planting of just little portions to flowering carpet was roughly six to eightweeks, perhaps less. I just didn't keep a record of when I set it up.

T-8 shoplights from Lowes 64W total over each of the racks. The "fancy" silver ones. 8)

The window behind the shelf faces directly South so there is some "free" light coming in too. The lights come on about 1 pm or so and off at 11 pm.

Nikolay,

No, I didn't use a lid or mist. I just tried to keep the water level just over the substrate surface by a few millimeters at the minimum. I wanted it to acclimate at room humidity (about 34%) if possible which it did.
