Water Wisteria

I bought 2 bunches of this several weeks ago, seperated them and planted them about 1 inch apart. Since then all I get is the stems rot at the gravel line. I removed the bottom several leaves before pushing the stems into the gravel. Water temp is 80 deg, hardness is 200 ppm. nitrates are now down to 10 ppm I fert with flourish . and nothing is eating them. Any suggestions. I am ready to pull the remainder out and try something else

Do the plants have a good root mass? If they don't then give them time and they should take off. It is by far the easiest plant I have ever had and if I fertilize regularly it will take over my tank in a month or less. It really does suffer though until it gets a good root mass so be patient with it. It is a nitrate sponge so it is a good plant to have once it takes off.

One thing I have noticed though is if you don't dose regularly other plants will grow really slow because the Wisteria eats up so much of the nutrients.
