    As a newbie, when I hear about plant maintaince, I'm not sure what that involves. :-\ I have a couple aponogeton plants in my 5 g. One is really growing. It looks great, but anything I should know about maintaince? Do I need to cut the leaves after a while?

    Thanks ;D

    If it gets too big you can prune the plants back a bit.

    Apontogentans do best with some type of root tab placed near them.
    If you do remove healthy growing leaves, you need to make sure you are adding some type of fertilizer.

    Aponts are a good starter plant.
