Re: Planting of Bunch Plants

Hi Chris.

The best way, without a doubt, is to plant each stem individually.  Plant
them closer together for the best look, but allow for some space between
them, depending on the type of plant.  After all, each "stem" is an
individual plant, and will compete with its neighboors for space, light, and
food.  Some "bunch" plants, like Lilaepsis, are somewhere between tedious
and impossible to plant this way, so pushing the whole thing into the gravel
isn't a bad idea ... Usually, the plant naturally thins itself out.
