View Full Version : GSP Frag

I got a small GSP frag today and was wondering how long is normal until it "opens" up?

Not long. A day maybe.

Then, the next significant number will be "How long until it starts taking over my tank and I regret ever putting it in there?" That'll be on the order of 6 weeks or so.

Ditto. That stuff is evil kudzu. Keep it separate from anything else, otherwise it will grow to it, onto it, over it, etc.

Typically just give it two to three days to settle into its new environment. Watch your pH, though - they'll often stay closed if your pH dips too low (mine would start hiding with the pH around 8.0). Then once it's happy, it WILL try to take over the world... ; )

I have a small frag of GSP that I have had since last April, it has stayed a small frag and never gotten any bigger or moved much at all. I personally dont think GSP is as aggressive as xenia is. Maybe I have a certain species of GSP that isnt as intrusive?

xenia is worse than gsp, i think xenia learns how to jump off of rocks....

i grow my gsp on the wall to make frags...shame you cant do that with SPS's
