I've had mixed luck with lileopsis.  In a high tech tank with lots of CO2
(from a cylinder), daily PMDD, red art clay, and very coarse substrate, my
first batch did nothing except attempt to grow straight up, adding roots above
the gravel.  It's now spreading rapidly in a tank with DIY CO2, weekly
fertilizer, kitty litter and "fine" pea gravel.  Lighting is similar in both
tanks (175 W, 5500K MH).  I won't even guess which variable was most important
<grin>.  Sorry, I don't have any recent numbers for N and P.  Various swords,
sags and vals do equally well in both setups.  So...What am I doing right?
