Water wisteria leaf melt

I put some water wisteria in my 29 gallon tank and some of the leaves have melted. Will it recover?

Try fertilizer. I could never keep it alive but that was before I started using fertilizer. I should try again.

But then I can't even get duckweed to survive

The only plants that do really well for me are anubias.

Yep, it will be fine. A lot of aquatic plants leaves will melt when transfered into a new tank. As long as the stem remains intact it should grow back just fine.

A way to prevent melt in the future is to acclimate plants the same way you acclimate fish. Change the temps slowly, and add/remove the water it came in on a drip system instead of just plopping it in a new tank of water. You'll preserve more of the plant this way but will still likely loose a few leaves.

I never thought about acclimating them.
