Wisteria? Water sprite? Something else??
I think it's wisteria!
Hmmm, I need root tabs then!
Not necessarily! Wisteria is a pretty low-maintenance plant. It will probably do a lot better with root tabs but likely OK with just fish waste or liquid ferts
Yes that seems to be how it works. I've had aquariums since I was a kid but never live plants so this is so new to me...thanks for all the advice!!!
No its a water sprite
This looks like a stem plant though. IME sprite is a lot shorter and tends to do better as a floater. It also produces baby plants on its leaves like Java fern.
I also agree that this looks more like water wisteria than water sprite imo judging by the leaf patterns
id say wisteria
i had mine in a tank with low light and no ferts and it grew like crazy!
I was worried mine doesn't 'grow like crazy' but after seeing some at my LPS I see mine is growing as others....with the top cluster of leaves full and rising up with the lowers not, long stem. Any thoughts on when to trim these?
Any time! The remaining stem will sprout new leaves and the cuttings can be replanted to grow new roots
yup,you can trim them whenever they get too big for ya.
i gave some friends of mine some and its growing good for them,they dont have anything added to there tank so it should work for you to!
