Hi! I'm new! Actually, my husband has been here before, but this is my first solo! I'm wondering about plants - one of mine has grown so tall is it almost out of the water. I'm wondering if anyone knows how to deal with this? My first instinct is to do like with a houseplant - just snip it and stick it into the gravel and see if it will root. Has anybody done this, or anything similar? And more importantly - did it work? The plant in question is a wisteria. Thanks!

I don't know anything about plants - just started growing them myself, but I'm pretty sure you can clip it just above where the leaves come out, then re-plant it.

Water wisteria is an aquarium plant which you can propagate by cuttings.
Must moved this to the proper section.

Good luck with fishkeeping.:D

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
