hey guys, i just went out to get myself a small bunch of java fern from a lfs. i currently dun have any stones or driftwoods for them yet so i just poked large holes in a water bottle with the ends cut off, and i just stuck/tied the rhizome through the holes to keep them sunk in my small tank.

1// how do i know if they are growing? i have one with a tiny plantlet on the large leaf, so i'm watching that for the time being.

2// how do i know if my plant is just 'melting' or 'dying'?

sry, my first plant so i'm a little paranoid xp
thanks for the help

if it melts... it will look like it's melting. :) like, turning to mush ie: rotting in your tank. if it grows, it will get bigger and put out new shoots and whatnot. if it's growing really slowly, you may not notice it. You may want to take a photo and keep it around for comparison - like they tell people who are on a diet, y'know?
