 Sprinkle  a  cup  of  vermicompost  in  the  bottom  glass,  add  two  inches  of  clean  garden  soil  which  has  no  chemical  fertilizer  added  to  it,  topped  with  1  inch  of  river  sand..  This  will  do  the  trick.  If  the  lighting,  Co2  and  other  things  are  taken  care  of.

 Yes  you  can,  it  helps  in  bringing  the  PH  down.  But  nutrition  wise,  it  has  nothing  to  offer  for  plants.

 It  grew  like  a  weed  with  a  thin  layer  of  laterite  and  2inches  of  ordinary  river  sand.
 
 IMO  the  lighting  and  CO2  are  far  more  important  as  long  as  your  substrate  is  not  too  coarse  or  fine.  it  does  help  if  your  substrate  is  a  bit  matured  and  has  mulm.
