Please LIKE, COMMENT & SUBSCRIBE!! What’s up everyone it is finally fish friday and today we’re going to be talking about how to buy aquarium plants online so we’re going to go ahead and just break up plants into two groups we have plants that are grown submerged and plants that are grown emerged if you buy plants that are grown emerged, they’re going to take more time to transition to your tank because you’re trying to grow your plants submerged submerged basically just means they are grown in water and emerged means that they are grown out of water emerged plants are grown in a high humidity high CO2 environment which allows for them to grow faster and allows for wholesalers to rapidly grow them so they can supply more plants to people there’s advantage and disadvantages to both plants or receiving plants in both ways but if you’re looking just for buying plants for the first time or you’re an experienced hobbyist and you’re looking to buy different plants, you’re definitely going to want to buy submerged plants over emerged plants
unless of course you’re wanting to grow those plants emerged aswell it might be more beneficial to go ahead and buy the plants emerged
but the submerged plants will transition much faster to your aquarium and just because they’re submerged though
doesn’t mean that they won’t have a transition period and you could experience some die off and some melt it’s pretty natural, you take a plant out of it’s one habitat and or it’s one environment it has been growing in and you move it to a completely different one, it just has to adapt and accept the new water
It’s really important though that you when you plant new plants in, you don’t want to move them around a lot when they are new
and even if they’re not new, you still don’t really want to move a plant around because it is disturbing its growth and it’s settling in when it grows its roots into the substrate. and if you’re constantly pulling it up, it’s just going to give you less desirable results
so let’s go ahead and look at some different plants that you can buy and the types of plants that you can buy
