Wysteria? Never heard of it. How tall does it get and how much lighting does it need? I'm looking for taller plants that provide shelter for shy fish.

wisteria grows tall. Needs medium lighting - about 2+ watts per gallon of daylight spectrum flourescent light. I got 5 or 6 stems of it from the little plactic tube it came in.

It grows tall and fast. If it reaches the top of the tank, it'll grow across the top of the water, kinda like a floating plant. It's a stem plant, so it stays pretty thin. I have low-moderate lighting and medium hard water and it has grown like crazy.

Wow. I'm might get wysteria, but I know I'm getting java ferns. I've been doing online research the past ten minutes on java ferns so I don't get ripped off again. Do you have any advice about what to rubber band it to so the roots can attach themselves.

I just rubberbanded mine to a small rock. That way I can move it around easily.

Good idea, I'll do that. And I considered getting wysteria, and I decided that would be a nice plant to get. I'm going to my LPS this Friday to get the plants!
