I've had the same problems with glosso. In a new tank it grew like 
gangbusters until about month 3 or 4, then it stopped. I've trimmed 
it, thinned it, heck, everything I could think of, and the stuff just 
stopped. Everything else was growing great. Eventually it started 
back trying to fill in some gaps I had made, but it seemed to want 
to grow straight up then, if at all. Needless to say, it's all gone now, 
but there for a while I had a beautiful green carpet. I thought it's 
dying-off was my fault, but seems Krishna has the same situation. 
Good luck...
