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.

NICE BUSHY PLANT
This is a good plant for about any freshwater plant. It has a healthy green and is probably the most bushy aquarium plant. My dwarf frogs love to sit in the middle leaves or under it to be in the shade. And my dwarf gourami likes to trim the leaves. It might be flimsy when its small but its not when it gets big and bushy. It' a nice looking plant but some plants are nicer, like sword plants or java fern plants.

Great plant for beginners
This thing literally started shooting new roots in 2 days. It's now very full and bushy and a bright vibrant healthy green. Fish love to hide in it and it is so easy to grow. It does tend to be hard to plant, so you might either want to let it float and grow roots before trying to plant it in substrate, or you can tie it down with a weight until it grows roots into the substrate.

A Pretty Plant
I bought this plant for my neon tetra fish tank and it looks really pretty, they love to swim around it and hide behind the leaves, my only problem was that this plant tends to be quite flimsy and bends over, other then that I love this plant.
