Plant thread?

There was this plant thread, all sorts of different plants and their care and why they were good or not... Can someone link me to it? I'll remember to favorite it or bookmark it this time :/ Honestly it should be stickied!

Please and thanks!

Btw, being the stalker I am (looolll), in your album for your fish... Pull that sword slightly more out of the gravel than it is. Most dont like their "crown" (the area rigghhtt under where the leaves end and roots begin) to be buried.

Gently just nick it up and it'll be healthier-long term :)

Notta problem. Was it from the tubes? They take a bit to adjust, its stressful going from practically no water for a week (or weeks!) to living in a nice tank :) Pick off any* dead or dying leaves immediately...they dont recover. The sooner the bad ones are off, the faster the new can grow!

Also, consider getting root tabs. They really need that iron boost :)

Pew is a total stalker... Watch out - you're on her list now! :)

That thread should cover just about everything.... But post here if you need more help or advice. My expertise is more in the high-light, high-tech area, but I'll gladly help with anything you need. :)

Yus! It was one of those silly tubes! I'm going to get more plants when i get back to school because "That Fish Place" is right near there and they have a room full of plants in tanks so yeah. Thanks so much everyone. :3
Also i want a Marimo ball but they're expensive. :/ Oh, one more question, what kind of snails would you recommend? I think they have Tiger Snails, Zebra, Rabbit, and Apple snails there.

What are these "Plant Tubes" I hear so much about? I've only been to Petco/Petsmart once, so I'm not exactly familiar with their products...
