I'm Beginning my first 10 gallon tropical planted aquarium and I don't want to spend money on any plants considering the entire earth is covered by them. My only concern is since I live in NY, all the aquatic plants have adapted to harsh season shifts and colder water. Does anyone know if plants found in ponds in NY can survive in tropical conditions? I'm sure some will be fine in the warmer water but if anyone has some experience here I would appreciate some advice so I don't waste time trying to grow plants that will just die.
