Are Native River and Pond Plants Usable?
 
Hi all,

I'm new here, and this is my first post.

What is the scoop on using native river and pond plants in the
community freshwater aquarium?

Provided
1. The plants will thrive in your tank's conditions (Ph, Dh, etc)
2. There's enough life in the tank.
3. You have "quarantined" the plants for a couple of days -- to lose any
nasty critters that might harm your fish,

it should be okay.

Then again, I'm not a lawyer.

Hi Marco,

I am in the New Haven, CT area.

I agree with the other post about quarantining them for a while.

We have a variety of plants here in the native waters. I wouldn't
expect to have a lily growing in my tank, although there are a huge
variety of grass type of plants around.

I am getting back into the hobby after about 20 years without a tank.

I can't remember if I ever tried native plants before.

Thanks for your reply..

CT I guess is cold water area, isn't it? Would love to read
more about your experiences keeping native water plants
indoors.

Good luck..

No.

I have all sorts of stuff growing aorund he riccia, lemna tricula,
ludwigia, potamogeton - you name it.

Noting seems to survive for very long at indoor temperatures. But I'm
pretty far north. In souther climes it's possible. Anywhere inbetween
is 50/50 p worth a ahot.

Sterilize it well in alum to kill any nasties.
