Sterilizing plants

They'll die unless you treat them as you would in a tank. Give them light and fertilisers or used tank water or both.

Crumb! I have the tank water but only natural light and probably not enough.

Well I guess it will be sterilization. :)

Thanks so much for your help.

It only takes one time of insufficient sterilization methods/quarantine to realize just how important it is not to skip, or skimp, this step.

For more delicate plants, Potassium Permanganate is an amazing sterilizer, but for hardier varieties, plain household bleach will do. :)

Thanks! It will just be java fern and anubias nana.

:D
