I've managed to get tar to grow past the duplicators without using them up, but now I'm stumped.

It looks like I need two roaches to hit the plate on the south side; one to go in the alcove, and the other to go past it to hit the plate. A tar baby would just get stuck, as any created ones would move after the original roach and the only way to change this would be to use a duplicated roach anyways.

Since there are only two duplicators, this suggests I can only create one extra golem, which means I can only hold down two plates on the east side with golems.

This means I either need to somehow hold down the third plate with a tar baby (since there's no way for tar to grow in there) or figure out a way to do the south section without duplicating a roach. I'm completely stumped on how to do either of these things.

I couldn't make sense of your hint but it led me in a different direction that ended up working.

Then I checked your demo and felt a little silly for not thinking of that.
