I'm very happy to have replaced my plastic plants with real ones. Ok, there are only 4, that's enough, for now at least, but I'm happy to have plants that actually do something for the water and fish. Again, I haven't had fish before a few weeks ago, so having REAL plants is very exciting for me! lol I got 2 dwarf pongol, a purple wattle, and a wisteria.
One question, the purple wattle and wisteria each came as a small bunch, held together at the base of the stems with a bit of wire. Neither really has any roots yet, and I just can't get the wattle to stay in the gravel.... it floats out of it and is suspended about an inch or two above the gravel. Will the wattle grow roots alright, even though it's not anchored? I thought it'd be fine floating, but just wanted to ask. And, should I leave the wire on to hold the bunches together, or would it be best to remove it?
