Things to Remember:

Water temperature:

Aquatic plants require a tropical community aquarium with water temperaturesranging between 72-78º F (22-26º C). Use an aquarium heater to maintainwater temperature.

Adding plants:

Whether you're just starting your aquarium or introducing new plants into your tank, make sure to add only one or two plants at a time.

Lighting:

Most tropical plants require sunlight each day, year round. The duration and consistency are essential for plants to thrive. Natural aquariums must be equipped with the means to provide 12 hours of simulated sunlight each day.

Plant fertilizer:

Fertilizer should only be added according to the dosage instructions on the label, and only when needed (as in the case of a water change). Plants will grow best if fertilized moderately and regularly after water changes rather than given larger quantities of fertilizer on a less-regular basis.

Fish and plants:

Small schooling fish are highly recommended for a natural planted aquarium; larger fish often uproot plants. The adult size and eating habitats of a fish should always be taken into consideration.

Water changes:

Test water weekly to assess water quality. It is recommended that 10% of youraquarium water be changed per week. At the very least, 25% of your aquariumwater should be changed per month. For optimal health, regular water changes not only prevent the undesirable accumulation of excess nutrients, but also remove excess nitrates and waste products of the fish and plants.

Aquarium placement:

Place your aquarium in a low-traffic area, away from direct sunlight and drafts.

Planting your natural aquarium:

Foreground plants: Usually stay very short and help fill in the front part of the aquarium.

Middle ground plants: These plants grow anywhere form 4-10 inches tall.

Background plants: These are the fastest-growing and tallest plants.

Things to watch for:

  • Poor growth
  • Brown spots on leaves
  • Plants appear weak, pale green to yellow, stems have few leaves
  • Plants cease to grow and die off
  • Stem plants have long internodes and small leaves

Water Wisteria is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great plant! This is a great plant I have over 20 of Wisteria plants all from the one I bought at petsmart last year, it does make a great beginner plant, and once you get some live plants in your aquarium your going to want more.This is a fast growing plant, and my fish love swimming through it, I highly recommend it for any fresh water aquarium. Maintenance for this plant: Hardly any at all, you will want to remove dead leaves, and there will be dead leaves especially with in the first month of purchase as with most plants their leaves tend to die and then re-grow once they get adjusted to your aquarium, but after that the leaves will re-grow and become a lot more beautiful then when you originally purchased them. I do add aquarium fertilizer once a month and that has seemed to help them become greener but its not necessary, these are tough plants and hard to kill even if you can't grow anything in the back yard. If you notice your water wisteria getting too large, find a nice node (its a part of a stem that has roots on the side of it) and snap or snip it off under the node on the stem, with some scissors at the top and replant and congratulations you now have a new plant. (Also if you have any trouble keeping this plant planted(or any plant) you can always tie (with thread,fishing line, or an elastic band) to a marble or a rock, or some other type of decoration (no matter the size) to keep in sunk until it grows some longer roots.) Over all its a great plant, fertilizer isn't needed, Co2 isn't needed and it will grow well in many different environments. how ever if you would like to use fertilizer for your plants, I recommend Sachem Flourish root Tabs, or API root tabs, if you want to go the liquid method I recommend you go with some Sachems plant products such as Flourish and Excel. but as I've said, you Do not Need much to keep wisteria alive, its a vary hardy plant.
