I just bought a couple of good looking anacharis and water vesperia at Petsmart and was wondering how long should I keep them in quarentien? Also are these plants floater or can they be good for planting into substrate and still survive??
Yeah that one I paid like 3.14 for a bunch so I got 2 and no it was in a big tank with other plants and snails that's why it's in quarentien... But can they both be planted in substrate with out stem rot
Any stem plants are fine for immediate planting as they root extremely fast. Some people just like to float them to get roots developed.
Both plants are fine left floating or planted. If the wisteria gets too big you simply cut it below those little bumbs where the leaves come out of. This is where stem plants have their roots coming out of.
Yeah thanks for the tips... And yeah that's how it was in an open tank but I made sure to pic the healthy looking ones with good roots and if I get more water wisteria I can ship some to you I you still need it it is pretty big about to hit max on my aquariums height... Just pay the shipping for it and I will gladly send some over... Sorry to hear about your plants MSG I only have my 3 Berta spin thought they will eat it (I say this hopefully) lol
Yeah it was at my local Petsmart. So far all the Petsmart I have visited in Florida have that set up a big tank with all the plants and some pond fish with a crap load of trumpet snails... Yeah I rinsed them off with tuning water then swished them in my water change bucket then finally put them in my quarentien tank with the new Betta but I feel like moving the Betta to another tank so I can keep him under a better watch.... And I wish my betta would eat them but they are passive little boys lol... I kight add some API plant food that has potassium which kills snails (killed my mysteries by accident once)
