Great job....your tank looks awesome.....the wisteria will work as a floater or planted...its a pretty easy stem plant to grow....you can even propagate from a leaf...let it float until it sprouts roots and then plant or with the mother plant- pinch the top and plant the stem and it will root and the pinched plant with get bushier......the leaves you strip off-let them float and usually within a week or so they will have roots..if not toss them

Potted will be fine-you can even use potting soil in your pots-use gravel in the bottom of the pot, wet potting soil-pot the plant and top with more gravel so the soil will not float...the weight from the gravel, pot and wet potting soil will help keep it submerged and the potting soil will make the plant grow better/faster...provided that you have the right lights and it looks like you do by the way your plants are growing.....

Only problem I see.....you need more tanks...laffs......

Thank you so much for the information! I'm going to be watching this leaf that's floating around now. :D I'm sure my mother would love it if I filled all of her tanks with wisteria on my trips home. Haha.

I might re-pot the plants in potting soil, then. Right now they're just in some type of foam that they came in.

I have access to a few more tanks (five more - two are empty 10g just asking to be divided and filled with bettas!). I see a horrible creation in progress!

Aha! I guess that means I did a good job hiding the pots! XD
