"Top Fin Aqua Fern Plants" Trichomanes javanicum
Today I went to the pet store to pick up some live plants for my aquarium. I did some research and found out which plants are suited for beginners. I ended up getting a few Wisteria plants and what I thought was Java Fern. I then ended up googling “Aqua Fern Plants” and one site said they are not even aquarium plants? What did I buy, and is it going to die?
Also the instructions on the package are worthless. Is there anything I need to know about planting and taking care of Wisteria?
Top fin plants are b.s. IMO half of them are non aquatic. I did buy an anubias (species unidentified) and it's doing well. the rest = non aquatic.
I read that you can keep them but you have to emerge them now and then for them to be healthy. I also just read tonight somewhere that you're better off keeping them as house plants.
+1 on what Stephanie said.
If you're limited to what you're saying there with that stores "selection" it may be worth while to you to look here; super quality and good prices and if you buy a bunch plants free shipping Sweet Aquatics. That is where I get all my plants for all tanks from and I don't even bother looking no where else any more.
Is this the fern you have in your tank? http://www.reptiledepot.com/New%20Folder/plant7.jpg
Then your best bet is to either keep it as a houseplant or give it to a terrarium owner as it will not last fully submersed.
Why they started selling non-aquatic plants as aquatic plants is beyond me to understand....But that's why there's forums like us that help you know what to watch & shop for :-)
I do have quite a few Wisteria plants, I sure hope they are the aquatic kind. :-(
