They will grow submerged, semi-emersed and emersed. I'll be using quite a few in my next build.
As far as coco fiber attaching, i used silicone under water in the front left, otherwise all the submerged section is titebond. On the land mass, the right side by the water feature and the hills on the left are siliconed, everything else is at least 2 coats of titebond. Hope that helps
Keep warm and safe up there in IRT territory!! When your spring hits, i'll send ya some plants
You're awesome, thanks! Winter will be a long one thats for sure; they always are. Good thing the outdoors is always fun no matter what the season! The info is great, your tank will be an inspiration when I finally get to the finishing touches of my build. Thanks again and do keep us posted with this new build. Its fair to say your mastering the genre..............headin' out to get some crypts on your advice.
