How to grow grass in an aquarium?
Set the aquarium in a place that receives partial sunlight and rotate it every few days so the grass does not grow slanted into the sun. Do not place it in direct, all-day sun as the glass sides of the aquarium will raise the heat and you could scorch the young grass plants. Put sphagnum moss on top of the charcoal.
Can you grow grass in a terrarium?
A clean terrarium will grow grass better than one full of leftover fish scum. Scrub the sides with a clean sponge or rag to remove the remaining dirt and let it sit in the sun to dry for a few hours. Pile enough gravel or pebbles in the bottom of the aquarium to cover it, but do not build up the layer too much.
Can you plant carpet plants in aquarium soil?
Carpet plants and aquarium grass require you to plant them in a substrate such as aquarium soil. This is because carpet plants will grow an extensive root system in the substrate. Gravel and sand will interfere with the plant trying to spread its roots out.
How to plant grass seed in soil?
This layer should be built up a few inches so the roots of the grass plants can grow deep enough to support a taller plant. Plant the grass seed in the top layer of soil by sprinkling the seeds on top and gently pressing them into the soil. Do not cover the soil with a thick layer of seeds; leave enough space for the seeds to germinate.
