Are there tricks to keeping the roots short, or should I be grabbing some duckweed or salvinia or something off aquabid?
I do like the look of a floating plant, and franky frogbit is kinda nice looking....
I would love to see a picture of your tank and especially the roots from the Water Sprite. Water Sprite is a fairly new addition to my tank and thus far, it isn't doing much. It had been rooted in another tank and I was wanting to leave it floating.
