  1. Question Replanting a Plant?


    0 Not allowed!
    Hey there. So my husband and I have a Red Ludwigia Plant in our aquarium, and we've had it for about 2 months now. It's starting to kind of "overgrow" on to one side....and we're wondering if we are able to make it into two plants, instead of one big huge one. Our tank is only 10 gallons, and we have an Oranda Goldfish, and a miniature Catfish.

    Stem plants like the ludwigia can be cut along the stem and replanted. Make sure to have the cutting be at least 4 inches/ 10 cm long to give it a good chance of taking.

    PS: you might want to look up the potential size and care requirements of your stock, especially the goldfish.

    Should we be making sure there is a root on the piece we take from for the replanting? It's just gotten way to big, and the other plant we got the goldfish ate. But the ludwigia has flourished nicely with little to no disturbance.

    No, Just use the stem clear of leaves.

    PS. Also, See the previous PS. :-D
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
