Plants to avoid

Several threads have mentioned non-aquatic plants being offered as aquarium plants, so here are the 21 most common ones to be avoided. Also some useful information that will sound familiar for those who've read previous posts of myself and other members.

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]

stellar article. I just wish more people were in a position to read it thoroughly before going to a chain store plant shopping for the first time.

OTOH, once they started rotting in my fish tank, My dracaena grew beautifully in my firebellied toad tank :)
