How long will this take?
 
I started a planted 5 gallon tank, and bought some plants that are too big. Instead of throwing them away or returning them, I sentenced them to death, by snail! My non-planted tank has an apple snail, so I decided to put the plants in there to dispose of them. How long will my apple snail take to voraciously devour them? so far he has only eaten a bit of a dying leaf. How long will he take to eat it?

Unless you are starving him, he will probably only eat the dead plant matter.
