Keeping Your Plants in An Aquarium Pot

First and foremost, always check that the water level in the pot is appropriate and does not dip below the plant’s base. Your plant will benefit from this by staying safe and healthy. 

Second, providing your plants with enough light and humidity is crucial. 

Lastly, move your plants to prevent them from being overly agitated and uncomfortable.

Keeping most aquatic plants inside a closed aquarium can be entirely acceptable, especially if they grow slowly or not, like Swords, Java Ferns, and other similar species. 

Most species of aquatic plants bought as aquarium plants or even planted by enthusiasts at home do not always perish after a few years, in contrast to some species of aquatic plants that are accessible commercially. 

Additionally, some aquarium plants can withstand drying out far better than others. These species tend to “fall into” their substrate when it is dry, resulting in considerable root damage or even death. Therefore it would be beneficial to avoid moving them around the tank too frequently.

These are just a few details people often miss or are unaware of. But don’t worry, Plant Judo is here to help.

Benefits From Plant Judo’s Plant Pots For Aquariums

The splendour of a beautiful pond can be seen in any setting. Additionally, aquatic plants give your pond a sophisticated touch that can make it stand out. 

Plant pots have several advantages for your fish and plants, which make them hard to overstate. 

Plant Judo offers a wide variety of plant pots for your aquarium and several benefits.

Better-Quality And Clearer Water

Fabric Plant Pots at Plant Judo stores are suitable for water and air permeability. Soil cannot flow out, but moisture can flow in.

As a result, silt that may leak from plastic pots is kept out of your water. Plant roots may penetrate the fabric without breaking it, an even more significant advantage of pond pots.

By absorbing nitrogen, roots that are submerged filter water. Without the use of costly filtration systems, they make your pond appear crystal pure.

Enhanced Plant Health

Plant Judo offers unique pots to encourage root circling, a diseased condition in which the roots circle the pot and tangle together. Because tangled roots can't adequately circulate moisture and nutrients, it is very hazardous for plants. Root-bound plants will eventually perish if untreated.

Our plant pots designed for aquariums resolve this issue, eliminating root circling. Instead of circling when roots reach the plant pot's edge, they branch. They come together to form a compact mass that effectively distributes nutrients and accelerates growth. The aquatic plant growth in these plant pots results in larger, healthier specimens.

Fish-Friendly Environment

Poor quality plastic pots and artificial plants deteriorate and break over time. The pot's exposed, sharp edges can harm and hurt your fish.

Fishes are prone to ingesting plastic fragments. Plastics accumulate in the guts of birds, leaving little room for food. By cultivating aquatic plants in plant pots, you may prevent the injury or death of your pet fish.

Water-Friendly Plants You Can Put Together With Your Fish

An aquarium with well-planned plants can be relaxing and enjoyable for the eyes. The lovely green plants control the aquarium’s environment by filtering dangerous substances out of the water.

At Plant Judo, we have some beautiful plant recommendations for those looking to create a planted aquarium tank.

Another low-maintenance, simple-to-care-for aquarium plant is Anacharis. Its thick green foliage gives the tanks a lush appearance. Although Anacharis may survive in various aquatic environments, it prefers temperatures between 22 and 25 degrees Celsius.
