New Water Wisteria

I bought some water wisteria and I realized that it doesn't have much of any roots after buying it from petsmart. Should I float them and let their roots grow or leave them planted in the gravel? They were in bunches and I separated them as well when I put them in.

In my experience, it doesn't really matter. If the wisteria's happy (and it isn't, always, something I'm doing some research on, if it'll help folks who experience 'wisteria melt') then it will put out many roots, whether in the ground or floating.

I tend to float mine before I plant it, just because it's pretty and the bettas really like it. Then when the roots get stupidly long, I plant it.

And it doesn't have to be planted straight up and down at that stage. It sends out roots at all its 'joints' so it can be planted longways, to let lots of smaller plants spring up, too.

Thank you very much Aus, I appreciate the help! I wasn't sure, but I'm glad I read that you should keep them unbunched.
