Well, if they started rusting already, I think the best idea would be to replace them. If you want to get the same plants again, try plugging the bottom up with silicone before putting them in?

i threw away the one that was rusting. i thoroughly inspected all the rest and there appears to be no more rust. The reason the first one rusted was because the ceramic bottom fell off, exposing the metal

Hey, it was a nice run! 3 years isn't bad :)

After closely inspecting my petsmart silk plant, I see that the metal wire IS rusting...plus the leaves are fraying up pretty badly and it hasn't even been a month! Hopefully these Hagen Marina silk plants I got will last for a while...I don't know about 3 years, but hopefully a while :)

If I had the option, I would love to have live plants. Unfortunately, I'm a college student living in a dorm, so having live plants would be inconvenient since I'll be moving a lot. :(

I have both of these plants. D: My male betta LOVED them argh! Noticed the rust on the bottom of each of them. Any way that covering the bottom with silicone would save them or should I just throw them out? Its very expensive to buy silk plants and I'm on a university student budget >.<

My goodness! What sort of aquatic company would manufacture aquarium decorations with METAL in them? That's the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard! Sort of like those 'Betta Safe' decorations I see that have holes in them that are much too small!
