AdAndrews said:although i have never brought XL, i think its pot luck with the tropica plants, when setting up a previous tank i had an normal size java fern, but i have just recieved an huge one, nice big leaves, all healthy, not even the same plant.. dont your local MA do aquafleur aaron?
George Farmer said:The ferns are, IME, especially if you can pick one, or get the supplier to pick for you.
I like to leave it attached, if possible, as it's so much easier to work with. If the wood is hidden behind a big fern then there's little point in potentially damaging the root structure.
George Farmer said:Good point!
I've only just realised where you're going to be putting it.
Usually I place them in a bigger wood 'housing' i.e. the base of a piece of redmoor with all the roots protruding from around it.
Your slender/single pieces of wood would make it tricky to achieve the same effect.
May be worth sticking to the XL pots then.
I apologise for the confusion, Aaron.
Superman said:On this subject, I picked up a massive narrow fern on tropica wood from my LFS for only Â£18! It's huge, there must be at least 5 pots worth on there and it's well matured. I can't wait to properly plant it!
