 Could you please explain how you used the philadendron cuttings to lower
 the phosphate level in your tank.

Philadendrons are "Phosphate intensive " rain forest plants.  She floated her
cuttings in styrofoam with the cut ends sticking down into the water.  I have
taken rooted cuttings and placed them directly into the substrate gravel when
using (Egad!!NOOO!!!) an UGFilter.  They perform quite well, and the Pathos
variety is qite attractive.  The Heart-shape Philo always seemed to thrive
better submersed for me.
