    how can one boost the growth rate of cheato? is it purely down to the lights or are there additives one can use? mine doesnt seem to have grown much since i got it.

    Depends on the lights.

    CFL, 15w or above.

    LED spotlight 10W

    Can use T8 or T5 as well

    I found best growth with Metal Halide lighting and an Iron Supplement.
