I was dosing my 33 gal with PMDD. (Before people freak out because I was
pumping 400w into a 33 gal. tank, I will remind you that this was an
up/downlight, meaning there is a hole in the reflector behind the bulb
allowing about half the light to shine up, out of the fixture.) The glosso
did pretty well. So did the algae. After a month or two, I switched back to
my old canopy (2x30w fluorescent). The algae died back. The Glosso slowly
faded to nothing.

I switched to the Barr method a 2 weeks ago.
In the left-hand corner of the tank, far, far from where it was originally
planted, a lone Glosso shoot has appeared.
I am very pleased. Very pleased.

Thank you Mr. Barr.

Does there exist, anywhere on the internet, a nice summary or howto of Mr. Tom Barr's methods for a planted aquarium? In an "easy to understand for a non-chemist" format?
Or has Mr. Barr written a book yet and I missed it? ;)
I know I can archive hunt, but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask this question.
