You'll hate it soon enough.

Little pieces of leaves floating everywhere with little roots hanging off. Trimming every week. Just when you think you've got it all pulled out it regrows from nothing.

I liken it to duckweed.

Cardboard, try to tier your Wisteria Horizontally about 3 layers high,
don't let it grow vertical. trust me, it looks really awesome that way.
you can use plant weights along the stem to coax it more horizontal.
as Ice said, Wisteria requires a lot of pruning due to it's fast growth.

In a low tech tank this is a very nice plant. And the picture, while it isnt the greatest quality photo but the plant looks rather nice.

Me too but I learned a few things about tank photography today at the DVAGA meeting. I hope to get better. I think your photo is over exposed.

i like the look you have going there. i have some in my 15 gal but it would probably look better in a bigger tank. i'd like to try some mini-lookin version of it, like hottonia

I have a small wisteria plant...waiting for it to grow out, maybe I should just rip it up into smaller pieces and plant those. Will that work?

I like that cascade effect you've got going there. Pretty cool.

If it's a little Point 'n Shoot Digicam it may not have EV exposure compensation, although some do.

Sláinte!
