How Often to Clean Silk Plants?

I have about six silk plants in my aquarium. How often do I have to remove them and rinse them off? Do I have to rinse them all off every time I change the water?

I don't touch mine. If your tank is filtered then the silk plants will have some BB on them. What I watch for is if they're falling apart then they need to be replaced.

100% agree. If they get algae on them, gently clean off the coating in a bucket of used tank water.

Thanks! I was worried that I would have to take them all out! That would have been time consuming.
