For Aquatic/Live Plants stems in lead bunch:You can easily unbundle the weight (lead piece) and remove the cotton piece holding your plants together. Depending on the maturity of the plant, the roots can sometimes become entangled and might grow into the cotton making it harder to separate. As with potted aquatic plants, gently remove the plant the best you can without damaging the root structure.
After removing the plant from the cotton, you should be able to separate the plant further into "plant-able" portions! Clean them up a little and you are ready to go. Stem plants should be planted in a nutrient-rich substrate (eg Prodibio Aqua Terra Basis or Prodibio AquaGrowth Soil or Prodibio AquaShrimp Powder- Enriched soil for healthy plants), while epiphytes such as buce, anubias, or java fern should be attached to hardscape.
It is recommended to perform the act of quarantining your plants if possible. You may choose to perform a bleach dip. Algae and snails are part of the natural environment, therefore making it extremely difficult to guarantee the absence completely. The only way to guarantee that your plants are 100% shrimp safe, 100% free of any algae or snails is to use Tissue Culture aquatic plants as these are carefully grown in a lab. You can choose from our wide range of Tissue Culture Aquatic plants selection by Aquatic Farmer.
