DIY Plant Anchors

I had a problem with my cabomba constantly being pulled out of the substrate. My solution was to cut off the bottom of a 500ml water bottle, cut two X's on opposite sides and thread stems through each of the X's, cover with substrate. Ends up spacing the plants about an inch apart and stay rooted. They're food quality and about invisible under water.
