Hey all - I have a couple of questions about how to take care of live plants. Could you share your live plant maintenance routine and answer a couple of questions?
1) Sometimes older leaves don't seem to be doing as well as newer ones (i.e. on my wisteria the older leaves are kinda spotty and wrinkly). Should I prune them off? How do I do this without disturbing the roots (they're kind of far down, and I feel like when I try to get at them I might dislodge the plant)...? Should I use scissors? I'm a little worried about pulling the plant out accidentally...
2) My pennywort is growing algae on its leaves. How do I scrub it off without hurting the plant? I have an unused toothbrush but I worry that'll bruise the leaves?
3) My Brazilian pennywort seems to uproot really easily... I'm considering giving up on keeping it in the substrate and just letting it float. Is there a trick to getting this stuff to root?
