Our experiments We tried to grow it in cocopeat based potting medium also. After a few weeks, we observed some tiny flying insects in the cocopeat. Moreover, growth of plant was not better than RO water with water jelly. Hence, we don’t recommend to grow in cocopeat. We also experimented by growing it in soil too. But, as per conclusion of our experiments, we found out best growth of this plant in Water jelly or multi – coloured beads. We may add pebbles in water for beautification, but we have not observed any contribution of pebbles in growth of this plant.
