I don't think I tied this plant down right
I've never really tied down a plant before, and I think I may have done it badly. Please take a look and tell me if I need to make some changes: Attachment 11809

I don't have a ton of experience, I have only tied down one plant before but it has successfully rooted since. But, it looks alright to me. I may not have done it sooo close to the bottom of the leaves but it should be ok I think!

Its a lil overkill in the amount string used but that's only visual matter, nothing to hurt the plant from what I can see and once the Java has rooted down you can carefully pull / cut it out anyway, so no worries there.

how will I know it's "rooted down?" What sort of visual cues am I looking for?
And out of curiosity - I was wondering about it - If I had a completely flat piece of drift wood, could a root plant still attach to it?

by "root plant" I mean java ferns, anubais spp., things like that. I'm not sure if "root plant" is the correct term. =P

I think it could attach to something completely flat. Probably a bit rough would be better. I think they send out roots and then fine little hairs that attach to the surface. I think they might stick somehow or something. Anyways I'd just give it a month or two and if it's healthy it should be attached. You might see new whitish colored roots growing and attaching and then you might know from that.

They'll have longer roots coming from the bottom of the plant that either will rap around the driftwood or run along flat on the DW and attach themselves; that goes for any Anubias, Java fern etc.....I will see if I can find a good view in my tank and take a pic for you if I can but you'll notice the roots growing and attaching themselves.
