As the title says, I am finally getting runners out of my floating plant but they are growing underwater and I'm afraid they will melt. Should I let them be or cut them so they can float to the surface? I can take a photo if needed
Thanks for the info, so should I just let it be until the runners float? Or does it mean I need more lightning/nutrients to get the leaves to develop at the surface?Limnobium laevigatum is commonly known as Amazon Frogbit. Although the leaves float, it propagates by putting out runners underwater, but new leaves will develop at the surface as long as you have good lighting and nutrients. If growing conditions are good, it will grow so quickly that you will need to cull plants. Either give them away to friends or toss them in the garbage. Please do not flush them down the toilet or allow them to get into sewers as it is an invasive species in some waterways.
