Is it possible for bamboo stalks to survive completely submerged? I thought they would look neat planted in the sand of my aquarium.
thanks to any answers!
Bamboo is not an aquatic plant, it will die and rot contaminating the water.
Those bamboo plants you see everywhere are not true bamboo either (unless you found true bamboo) and it (sorry forgot name) is esp not a true aquatic, better to use plants that evolved for underwater, otherwise rotting denigration and much fouling of water, ph so on.. best Sherry
The common house plant ivy has survived for me completly submerged for months and only one leaf has died. It is hard to keep them submerged, but I found a small vase and put the plant in there and some gravel to hold it down. I am not sure if the bamboo will survive, but you may want to experiment and test if it will survive. Good luck and Happy Holidays!
I did a post about the lucky bambos in my past fish tank earlier on a different thread. The answer is, Yes! You can have lucky bambos in aquariums.
