Hey guys! This is my first post, lemme know please how informative and consise I’m being. : D
Im an amateur Aquarist and am on my second tank other than goldfish/tetra bowls (kid stuff)… Started off with a 2.5 gal and some ADFs + tetras and wanted something bigger, got a 10 gal (NOT big enough! I reccomend “starter” tank be bigger). Anyway, I wanted to go with a natural setup and decided to plant my community setup. I havent matured the tank yet, and have several species of plants, but the Micro stands out to me, so far, as being as hardy as it is pleasing to the eye, my African Dwarf Frogs drift into it to relax, and my pleco leaves it alone. It came packaged with its roots in some foamy material, and I trimmed most away with snips but left a little “chunk” of it to keep the stalks together. I then buried it in the subtrate with the crown (top of roots) exposed. I then gently sprinkled the substrate over it and “fluffed” the stalks back up in increments. This resulted in a natural look and a firmly embedded plant. The plants that I did NOT leave in their “foam” or otherwise affix have a tendency to be pulled out my the current. The swords are right under where the water drops back in and show all the signs of being secure and well. So far these, and Water Wisteria, are my favourite live plants that i reccomend for fellow “noobs” like myself.

great plant! doesn’t get too tall and grows pretty fast with the proper lights and nutrient.
