Tanks and Land Plants
We haven't talked about this in some time. I use plastic netting and put together a frame of wooden dowels and plastic twist ties to support my "Ag" plants.
The Pothos grows nicely, but the "Ags" will do a much better job of using the nitrogens produced by the fish.
Don't trim the roots, the roots take in the toxins produced by the fish and keep the water properties stable, so you don't have to change out the tank water.
Attached is a 55 G with some Aglaonema and Nephthytis emersed in the tank. The plants thrive in the nutrient rich water. The fish get used to the thick root system.
"Fear not my child, just change the tank water."
