Is there a book or article or a thread around here that helps explain how to plant, trim, what to look for and all that? Things I am trying to find out:
How deep do you place plants?
Is it ok to move plants?
Why do my plants keep melting at the bottom and then floating to the surface?
Most of the plant I have in my aquarium have never grown roots deep enough to reach the soil, so how does it get its benefit?

If someone knows where I can find some good info about this I would appreciate this thanks.

I think most books on planted tanks either have outdated info, focus on aquascaping, or focus on the chemistry and biology involved in growing plants. I think either msnikkistar or Msjinkzd sells a book on the basics of the hobby, but I'm not sure how much it will tell you about basic planting, pruning, and fertilizing.
