    i have gotten a few new plants and am unfamiliar with them and cant find much info on a couple of them,. If any one has any words of wisdom or warning i would much appreciate it.
    plants are
    : green foxtail
    : onion plant
    : corkscrew vall
    : other misc valls
    : a plant i cant id its a brighter more delicate fanwort

    i read that the onion needs its roots trimmed and bulb peeled before planting so i pulled it back up(been planted 2 days or so) and the roots had tripled in length, should i worry about the roots killing off other plants ?

    I do not think you have anything to worry about concerning the Onion plant Scotty b.

    okay i was just astonished, when i added the plant the roots where about 2'' when i dug them up they where 5''-6'' seems like they would cover the bottom of my tank in no time lol
