PostSubject: What Plants NOT To Buy..   Sat May 15, 2010 4:24 am

Thought I would add this list to help others know what plants NOT to buy..
Most, if not, all pet shops (including online) generally sell these non-aquatic plants and should not be placed entirely in water. They can last from days to weeks, but they will die, and pollute your tank. Remove them ASAP and keep clear of them.

    Aluminum Plant (Pilea cadierei)
    Arrowhead (Syngonium podophyllum)
    Bamboo Plant (Bamboo sp.)
    Chameleon Plant (Houttuynia cordata)
    Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema simplex)
    Club Moss (Lycopodium spp.)
    Coconut Plant (Calamus spp.)
    Dwarf Rush (Acorus pusillus)
    Dragon Tongue (Hemigraphis repanda)
    Dwarf Onion Plant (Zephyranthes candida)
    Dumb Cane (Dieffenbachia spp.)
    Elephant Ear (Caladium spp.)
    Green Sandy (Dracaena borquensis)
    Hedge (Alternanthera sp.)
    Japanese Rush (Acorus sp.)
    Mondo Grass (Ophiopogon japonica)
    Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum tasson)
    Pineapple Plant (Dracaena compacta)
    Pongol Sword (Chlorophytum bichetii)
    Pothos (Philodendron spp.)
    Prayer Plant (Maranta leucoreura)
    Princess Pine (Lycopodium obscurum)
    Purple Waffle (Hemigraphis exotica)
    Red Dracaena (Cordyline spp.)
    Rush (Pontederia cordata)
    Sandy (Dracaena sanderiana)
    Scarlet Hygro (Alternanthera sessilis)
    Silver Queen (Aglaonema sp.)
    Spider Plant (Chlorophytum bichetii)
    Stardust Ivy (Syngonium spp.)
    Sweet Flag (Acorus calamus)
    Ti Plant (Cordyline terminalis)
    Underwater Palm (Chamaedorea elegans)

There are more, so anyone else know of other's, please add them :thumbright:

And another tip: If it looks like a house plant, it's more than likely that it is!
just an exsample
Purple Waffle (Hemigraphis exotica)
