Depends on the type of plant, I have read that Bannana plants have a short life span. Also the tank conditions & type equipment being used will also factor in.

I agree that it all depends. I started with 3 anubias about nine or ten years ago. Those same three plants are still around for the most part and have reproduced enough that they fill not only the three tanks I have, but about 15 tanks owned by friends. They just keep on going. :shock:

Currently tankless for the first time in 24 years... Getting the itch again
