Subject: Willow trees in a planted tank?
I was down by a lake yesterday when I saw a bright green willow bush
by the lake side. Since willows readily root in water and do "fairly" well
wet I took off enough sprigs to make a 5" X 7" bunch. I placed a rubber band
around the bottom of them to keep them together and planted them in my tank.
It looks pretty nice and I wonder how it'll do. I just wondered if anyone
else has tried doing something like this.
I grow cypress trees and water tupelo trees in aquariums. You have to keep
them trimmed back kinda like bonsai but the roots make a great effect on the
bottom and the trees soak up nutrients faster than any plant I have seen.
