No need to refrigerate the prime, I don't think the flourish either but it certainly won't hurt it.

Can't help with the water sprite, one plant I have not tried yet.


Total years fish keeping experience: 7 months, can't start counting in years for a while yet.

If this is the floating species Ceratopteris cornuta, it will do much better floating. When planted in the substrate it needs very good light and even then does not do as well. The other species (see the profile for info) can be floated too, but if planted will be better than C. cornuta. But if you acquired this plant (whatever species) as a floater, float it.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
