Glosso's not really that hard. It doesn't even need that much light. I've had some of the best glosso I've ever grown under 2.0wpg. It does need good nutrition and CO2 though. Given that, and a smaller grained substrate it'll grow really well. I think the original challenge came from the fact that we didn't have that much experience with plants as a nation/group when it came onto the scene and a reputation stuck with it. Given nutrition and CO2 that stuff's a weed.

The hardest part about it is planting. It does much better if planted in small bunches, 2-3 plants per bunch, rather than as a single large clump. It takes a lot of patience, but if you can stick it out it'll reward you.
