Sweet potato aquarium grow

Recommended Posts

Ok experiment lasted 4 1/2 months, one sweet potato was dying off, other had a few dead leaves too. Got tired of the untidy look it gave to the tank and all has been removed. Not sure how well it did with nitrates as mine are always high. Pothos didn't do much after it shot a new leaf a few days after planting, pulled it out and it did have roots just didn't grow new leaves in that time. I'm sure the overall failure was mostly due to the lack of light these plants received, I wouldn't try this again unless I had a light for the emersed plants.

Thanks for the update Mick.  Good to hear the result, even if it wasn't a successful experiment.  Shame though, would be a nice way to reduce water changes.
