Slowly lower planted pot into the tank and position. The sand holds the dirt down. It makes it easy to siphon around the plants and easier to move later if you want to.
    What size are the pots you use? How tall and what's the diameter?
    It's my kids fault I am hooked on this hobby... It all started with a Desktop 5 Gallon Father's Day Gift!

    The rosette swords are in one of those small ~2" diameter by 1" deep glass dishes, the amazon swords are in 3" x 3" x 3" square glass candle dishes. The amazon swords are perfect, but I think my rosette swords are stunted because of the small pot size. I may redo the rosette swords and foreground. I found some old pics of my 90g dirted tank when it was first set up and I'm envious at the growth!

    I'll post it
