    How Many Pots?

    i would say 3 pots for a nice spread of plantlets. you could get away with 2 but it would be less dense and take longer to bulk up. but yeah 3-4 pots, presuming 1-2-grow are the same size as other pots :roll:

    No bubbles on plants....ever!

    it could be that in your tank the o2 dissolves in to the water before you get a chance to see visable bubbles because the flow is good enough to take it away. where as in your vase (i presume there is no filter) their is no flow so the area around where the plant releases the o2 becomes...
