Thanks I will float the plants next time. However this plant did well for a couple weeks before it went downhill so its a little weird.

And I will also try not to bury the stem too much either. That could possibly be my problem, as the browning came from the bottom up.

Thanks for the heads up!

I have a dirt substrate with a cap so I think i gets plenty of nutrients. Through the roots at least. The most important part to feed a plant IMO. I also dose flourish comp and iron.

jnatelborg54@gmail.com My Wisteria grows like crazy and I'm constantly trimming it. What I do notice tho is that if I get a bba outbreak, it's one of the first plants to have it on them. Also, I'm not so crazy about all those roots shooting out of them. It gets so thick that I wonder if the fish can even swim thru it.

mrduna01 Wisteria is one I've tried several times. It just withers away each time right next to other plants growing like crazy.

mitchfish9 yea I've heard of people having trouble killing it LOL.

I want a huge bush of it to fill one part of my tank

HybridHerp I disagree, I would take them out of the pots before planting. My guess is that you just got weak specimens and they didn't survive the move. A healthy plant should be able to be trimmed and replanted and still grow like crazy.

Indian fern I bought them in pots of foam. I always dont disturb the root structure as it can cause melting. I guess. I place the plants pots and all in the gravel. :#
In this way, they never melt!

OVT Give it another try as it can be a really beautiful (and useful) plant.

mitchfish9 Thanks guys. I really want to get more of it because it is a great plant.

I have decent lighting, and only dose flourish once a week. I also have dirt as a substrate so it is really a mystery to me how it died off.

My circulation was a little low however, but have since made it stronger about a week ago.

AirstoND Browning could be a number of factors IME:
1) Low lights
2) Low circulation
3) Adding too much salts, either as fertilizer or aquarium salt
