Peacock fern - floating plant?
I bought some peacock fern a few months ago, a small plant. I planted it, but I'm having a really hard time getting it to stay put long enough to really take root. Everytime I disrupt the water (ie everytime I do a water change) it breaks free and floats to the surface.
Will it continue to grow as a surface plant, or does it need to take root? I kind of like the way it looks as a floating clump of plants, and I could definitely use some more surface coverage.
Anyone have experience with this? I do use a liquid plant fertilizer so in theory it would still get fertilized.
