The substrate is irrelevant, as it is a water column feeder. It is not a heavy feeder, and can subsist if not fed additional ferts in a balanced tank with fish.
It does not require circulation – any more than keeping detritus off it will blow it around the tank, making a mess, Keep it out of high-flow areas unless you are sure you have it attached well.
Position in tank
It will need to be tied initially, then will attach itself given the opportunity. As it does need to be constrained, it has the capacity to float around the tank, and will settle, attaching itself to the substrate & continuing to grow. It is not difficult to remove (this can be done with fingers), but can make the scape look messy, if not constrained initially It has many uses, eg: walls, loose floating balls, constrained clumps, floating balls created around ping-pong balls using nets or cotton with ties to an anchor in the substrate, and of course attached to driftwood by cotton or superglue..
It propagates itself by simply growing the clump larger. When it becomes too large, pick up the unwanted portion, leaving the desired amount behind, do not let the extra dry out, and it can be used elsewhere in the scape, offered to another member of AL, or dry it out thoroughly before placing in the compost. Never allow aquarium waste to enter the waterways.
An easy and excellent beginner’s plant.
