I have my plants in quarantine for three weeks prior to adding them to the tanks. They are in large soda bottle with the tops cut off. the Hornwort is outside on the portch, it was doing okay, but now is starting to look worse.
The Java Fern I just got and it is in a small water bottle next to the tank. I tied it to a rock using a fine mesh and thread, hoping it will take root on the rock.
Do I need to be doing water changes and if so, how often?
Do I need to ad water conditioner or anything else to the plants while not in the tank with the fish?
How long should a plant be in quarantine before I know it is safe to add to the tank?
