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!

|they call me bruce||next time u get some let the plant float and it will aclimate to your tank it dosent like its roots buried to much leave it out of the gravel as much as possible|

This plant needs a lot of food: feed it.
You can snip the roots with your fingers to no ill effect.

|firstname.lastname@example.org||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.|

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

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.|

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.|

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.

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
