 hi  guys  ,
 
 recently  bought  some  long  hair  grass  and  got  to  see  it  pearling  right  from  the  second  day  after  planting  .
 
 I  have  not  provided  co2  so  far  ..
 
 Substrate  :
 
 bottom  layer  is  laterite  ,  second  layer  is  boiled  soil  from  paddy  field  topped  up  with  coco  peat  and  as  top  layer  i  have  used  river  gravel  .
 
 Lighting  :  direct  sunlight   for  around  4  hours  :)
 
 Preparing  a  diy  co2  ,  hope  algae  wont  take  over  by  then  .  I  have  tried  to  cool  down  water  by  dropping  ice  but  that  did  not  help  much  to  bring  down  temp.
 
 
 
 here  are  the  pics
 http://i39.tinypic.com/jkhs7r.jpg
 
 Pearling
 http://i43.tinypic.com/34gwl0n.jpg
 
 
 Please  advice  on  this  kind  of  substrate  Smile  ,  after  all  this  is  my  first  aquascaping  attempt  :)
 
 
 Thanks

 well  then,  some  times  pearling  occurs  in  new  plants  because  the  leaves  will  be  having  damages  during  transporting,  and  the  damaged  parts  will  leak  out  the  gases  which  looks  like  pearling..
 If  you  are  sure  that  this  is  real  perling  then  we  have  discoverd  some  thing  new.  my  advice  is  wait  for  2  days,  if  the  pearling  still  continues  then  I  would  love  to  copy  your  setup..  Thumb Up

 These  bubbles  are  not  the  ones  that  is  called  pearling.  these  are  bubbles  either  from  algea  or  damages  plants.  if  you  providing  natural  sunlight,  i  would  highly  recomend  high  co2.  to  help  prevent  algae  and  also  much  much  better  growth.   soil  is  ok.

 if  you  see  bubbles  even  after  2-3  days  of  water  change  and  when  there  is  light  ,  that  means  its  pearling,  but  from  your  setup  ,  you  will  get  algae  problems  in  a  week  since  i  see  you  have  kept  it  in  open  sun(though  not  direct)  ,  it  doesnt  help  ,  i  have  tried  many  a  times  and  ended  up  with  green  water  ,  black,  hair  algae   Very Happy  ,  but  currently  i  have  one  2  feet  tank  setup  which  is  positioned  next  to  a  window  and  received  5-8  hours  of  light  and  plants  are  growing  great  without  any  algae  problems.
 
 Hope  this  helps.
 
 Regards
 Asif

 That  worries  me  ,  i  have  seen  some  algae  when  i  got  the  plant  and  i  am  running  on  a  busy  schedule  to  prepare  a  diy  co2  .
 these  bubbles  are  seen  high  during  noon  ,  so  it  must  be  pearling  ..any  how  time  will  say  :)
 
 
 @  zipperboy  ,  lets  wait  and  see  if  we  can  find  a  cheap  substitute  Smile  ..  i  have  seen  water  lillies  growing  in  full  size  in  the  same  soil  ,  so  why  not  take  chances  .  If  i  get  a  green  tank  i  will  post  some  pics  too  Smile

 i  have  always  thought  of  a  tank  outdoors,  able  to  use  full  sunlight,  able  to  use  added  C02.  i  know  jeffrey  setiawan  sutanto  grows  the  finest  java  ferns  i  have  ever  seen  online.  They  are  in  a  sunlit  veranda,  and  this  is  yet  another  exciting  aspect  of  the  hobby.  let  us  see  what  you  do  with  yours.

 I  think  algae  is  taking  over  romi  ,  in  fact  i  had  traces  of  algae  on  plant  ,  so  far  i  have  not  added  co2  .  there  is  heavy  pearling  still  :0  
 
 and  romi  all  these  plants  were  introduced  or  evolved  under  sun  Smile  ,  if  you  can  provide  enough  water  flow  there  is  no  question  of  algae  Smile
