Brazilian Pennywort/Floating Plants help
Hello everyone! So I have a 60 gallon lightly planted discus tank, it is my first planted tank so it is low tech. I recently ordered brazilian pennywort and 3 "bushels" of it arrived today. I have never had floating plants before but I thought I would give them a shot and this one sounded easy to care for. They all have long stems and when I put them in the tank they just turned on to their side with the leaves not facing upwards. Is this normal? If I leave them like that for a while will the leaves eventually grow up towards the light and be on top of the water? Any suggestions or tips would be great (even if you don't have this plant but have other floating ones). Thank you!!!
