    Submerged or Emerged HC Cuba

    Does anyone know anywhere that we can get the submerged version? I've heard its easier to grow instead of the emerged. Is this true? Thoughts, if not true?

    It really doesnt matter whichever one you get. What matters most is having the right conditions for it to grow (lighting, soil, ferts). HC Cuba is a finicky one.

    Yeah, I'm considering it. I was looking at my previous tank and I got very lucky being able to start HC, but mimicking the conditions seems tough. I don't know if my water is much different from the water I had in the office and also I had Eco-complete/Flourite mix compared to ADA Aquasoil. It's between starting over if I really want the HC or possibly trying again once the tank is more established.

    its honestly not as hard as everyone makes it seem, medium lighting and co2. Important thing is too add fish/shrimp after the roots have established so it doesnt get dug up.
