Peacock fern - floating plant?
I bought some peacock fern a few months ago, a small plant. I planted it, but I'm having a really hard time getting it to stay put long enough to really take root. Everytime I disrupt the water (ie everytime I do a water change) it breaks free and floats to the surface.

Will it continue to grow as a surface plant, or does it need to take root? I kind of like the way it looks as a floating clump of plants, and I could definitely use some more surface coverage.

Anyone have experience with this? I do use a liquid plant fertilizer so in theory it would still get fertilized.

It will do real nice as a floating plant. I've always wanted some but no where near me ever carries it.

Funny - I live in Buffalo as well. I got it at the PetCo in West Seneca :)

haha that is funny. I live more north of buffalo in the N.T. area so I'm never out that way much. Usually just go to The Fish Place or PetSmart down Niagara falls boulevard.
