    Hi TASA,

    Any idea how long it takes for the emerged plants to transform to the submerge form?

    I purchased a bunch of plants and most are in the emerged form and was wondering when things will start change.

    Thanks

    I think that depends greatly on the plant. Slow growers like anubias - months to transition fully.
    Could you list specific plants you’re wondering about? Not sure I could help but perhaps others can.

    My gut feel about the rotala is about a month...? It’s a fast grower. I’m not really sure as my rotala came submersed.
    Do you have your CO2 running yet?

    Not yet, I should receive it today I hope.

    I also thought a couple of weeks. The others in the tank took about 2 weeks. Or its been two weeks and the leaves are changing now. The hygrophila was also in emerged form and it's now transforming to submerged form as well.

    The CO2 should help the rotala grow and transition faster :thumbup:
