Re: Myths - Vallisneria
I like the idea of a thread debunking (or at least questioning) some
commonly held truths about aquatic plants. So here's one:
Carefully planting Vallisneria with the crown exposed is necessary if the
plant is the succeed.
I became suspicious when the Vallisneria G. in my tank propagated naturally
and practically took over the entire tank. Almost all of the runners were
under the gravel surface; some as deep as 3". I guess they did not read
that chapter in Rataj and Horeman :-).
Since then, I routinely replant them with no concern about crown exposure.
They do very well in either case.
