Anacharis (egeria najas) care?
I just got the plant for science fair. I won't be experimenting on it for at least a few weeks. I don't have a tank, but just some buckets. Can I just use tap water to keep it alive for a few months? Do I need to provide it with nutrients such as nitrates from baking soda? Do I need to worry about excess growth? Additional stuff: -If I cut a part of the plant from its stem, such as a leaf, will it still grow (as in performing photosynthesis, which is my primary goal in getting this plant)? I don't feel like using one whole plant for a trial run.
