I bought this plant today from a great LP/FS, and the sales person was very knowledgeable. However, it doesnt look like water wisteria like she said after I looked at it, at least to my knowledge. (And I dont know a whole lot about it!)
What is this?
If it isnt Wisteria, what is it, and what is the level of care needed? I keep a low-maintenance tank, with some fertilizer and adequate amounts of light to keep annubias, anarchis, and java fern happy.
If it is Wisteria, which specific type?
It just seems to pine-y to me!
(Came in a cluster, all that- just wanted to focus on the pine-y things, ha!)
I was going to guess hornwort or green cabomba. I used to try to bury them in the substrate but the parts under the substrate would just rot and the plants would never flourish. They grow waaaaaaay better in my tanks now that I leave them floating. I honestly have trouble telling the difference between them without comparing them side by side. I have found that hornwort seems to be more sparse/spindly looking whereas cabomba is thicker/fuller.
