So sorry.

I don't know about boiling silk plants. Maybe it would be better to just toss them & start fresh?

Well, I was hoping there was a way to clean them because I am kind of low on cash right now. :/

I don't know personally, but hopefully somebody that has done it will be along to help you out.

How long does it take plants to settle into a tank? Of the four I put in on the weekend, the wisteria bunch isn't looking as good as it did. I'm wondering if it's adjusting or dying. Colour is good still.

Well, when I first got my wisteria, it was in horrible shape, so it quickly improved in the tank. What sort of lighting do you have, and what sort of gravel and ferts are in the tank? Oh, and by the way, fish food makes an awesome plant fertilizer when there are no fish in the tank. Just take a pinch, put it in a plastic bag that has a few holes punched in it, and submerge for a day or two....

Just standard gravel. The light is the one that came with my Hawkeye 5G; need to actually open it up and pop out the light to look for the numbers. I haven't fertilized. All that's in are my plants and my pair of dead shrimp. I'm probably worrying about nothing since I have zero success in this tank except for getting ammonia levels up.
