True, wisteria does grow like a weed, but it's great for adding plant mass quick. And it's really not that bad a looking plant. Very under rated.

i agree. I actually like Wisteria in a tank like this. It definately creates imbalance in one of those beautiful high tech tanks...but with plants like swords and what not, It creates a create background plant that is very user friendly aside from the trimmings.

I keep wisteria in my 5gal low tech beta tank. It literally consumed the entire tank, so I just let it go. Literally can't keep up with the weed like growth. Looks great. Good for sucking up nitrates like crazy too

thought i would throw up an updated pic of my 75. it just got a MAJOR trim last week, so growth kinda sucks right now:


and my all new, set it and forget it, low light, dirt and kitty litter tank. set this up for some crs. i just threw in a bunch of plants that i forgot about in my emersed bin. i figure anybody can scape a tank with awesome driftwood and seiryu stone, but it takes some skill to throw some lava rock in piles, add some dead plants and make it look good down the road. so maybe this should be my hero or zero tank.....lol
