Well, seems that just like with other substrates some plants take off and
others sit there. My sword plants grew right away and then stopped. Except
for a barthii that is very big and red and unstoppable. Common stem plants
like hygofillia polysperma and rotala rotundiflora grow like mad. Crypts
grew very well and then melted when I got slack on the fertilizer. They are
coming back now. All the plants, however, have terrific roots... even those
that seem to not be doing well. I will probably suppliment the swords with
jobes sticks or plant tablets.

As for the amount: it tells you on the bag how much to use per gallon.
