The Rhizome can not have something on it.

Just did some quick internetz research. What I think you are saying is that, for my crypto and the java fern, I need to unbury them and attach them to something instead? Like some kind of rock or driftwood?

Ok. I'll look for some small driftwood to put the java fern onto. All I have right now is a river rock that is really too big, I think, for this tank. I may boil it in waterbefore soaking it in conditioned water just in case. Maybe it would work.

Ugh...was just looking at my peacock fern and it's looking a little thin, too, so did a search and learned it ALSO is non-aquatic. WTH do stores like PETCO sell Mondo grass and Peacock fern as aquatic plants when they aren't! So annoying. Gonna return it, too!

Petco only had HUGE rocks and driftwood when I was there, so I need to get smaller pieces elsewhere.

If you check the label they say for aquariums and terriums and are semi-aquatic and aquatic.

A search on the web, however, says Peacock ferns at best are semi-aquatic. Have to take them out every couple of days and let them dry off before putting them back in. Which is a lot of work when you have four separate sprigs throughout. Would be a different story if they were attached to something but I have them just planted in the substrate.

You could plant them in a bottle and fill it halfway with water.
