    How do I get my water wisteria to stay in the substrate?? I have attached their roots to rocks using rubberbands, then push the rocks into the gravel. But they keep getting loose and float to the top of my tank. I think the parts of the root that I attach to the rock starts to rot. Help please!

    I push them down into the substrate gently or even dig a hole, push the substrate back around it and put an ornament, rock or shell to help anchor it until it anchors itself. If the plant gets damaged while replanting it will float.
