Simple Guide to Planting a *NEW* “Potted Aquarium Plant”

#PottedPlants #Aquariumplants #CryptLucens


In this video I take you on a tutorial and show you how to plant a potted plant into your aquarium. The plant that I am using in this video is a Cryptocoryne Lucens that I recived just a few days prior to the video from Aquarium Co-Op. You want to make sure you remove the “pot,” the “wool” that holds the roots in place, and split the plant up as much as you can so you get more for your money πŸ™‚

More about me:

I am a hobbyist from Southern Indiana. I currently have 17 tanks and have a few more to add to the fish room. I keep a variety of livebearers, angel fish, rainbow fish, barbs, tetras, rasboras, corydoras, plecos and NeoCaridinia shrimp. I love helping people succeed in this hobby and hope to learn from you all as well (my subscribers). I hope to grow more in the FishTube community so I can reach more people both as a subscriber to my channel and me subscribing to theirs. Help me create an amazing Otter Creek Aquatics community!

Keep following your dreams and keep inspiring!!! I hope to talk soon πŸ™‚


  1. Don't forget to let me know if you have had better success with potted or bare root Plants! I hope everyone has a good weekend!!!

  2. Awesome. Thank you so much. Just bought my first plant in a pot and wondered what on earth I had to do with it!

  3. Thanks for the great simple to understand video! This is exactly what I needed after receiving potted plants in the mail, I'm amazed how hard it was to find a video like this, most just show the plant in the pot, and then bare roots being stuck into substrate lol

  4. Awesome! Short, sweet and simple. I just got some plants in the mail that were potted and was at a complete loss πŸ˜‚ I've had goldfish for yeeeeears but they ate everything, so I'm going all out aquascaping my betta tank

  5. thank you for your video. We are venturing with plants in our aquarium (previously with plastic ones), we will try both methods. We will let you know

  6. Been just sticking the potted plants in my aquarium for god knows how long. And I’m on my last legs with this fish tank lol Iv just bought a fluvel fx6 filter and trying ta learn a bit more about keeping a tank. Because if it don’t work out this time Iv had enough lol. Thanks for the video.

  7. Thank you! I appreciate that you dive right in and don't waste time with "prep" talk. Short, sweet and to the point πŸ‘πŸ»

  8. THANK YOU!! This is just what I was looking for! New to aquariums & got potted plants in the mail, and all the other videos I found were on barefoot plants…

  9. nice plant video there cheers keep following your dreams to all cheers , anyone else just bought new aquarium plants as well?

  10. Thanks for the help…great video…what can I do at home to ensure I don’t get tiny little snails hiding in the plants. Do I have to buy a treatment or can I just rinse the plants. I found a tiny snail in my 15G Flex and I don’t want anymore! I’m assuming it came from a plant.

  11. Great video. Ordered a plant and it came with just the stems which is a nightmare for beginner. Potted plants give the plant a better chance of survival.

  12. Okay dude very good and informational video, helped me out a bunch but man smile every once in awhile it felt awkward watching. Lol πŸ˜‚

  13. I had no idea you could split up the roots! I just planted amazon sword in my 135gal tank. I will be splitting them up tomorrow! Thanks! πŸ˜€

  14. I had an Hydrocotyle tripartita. I had remove it carefully from original pot moved to black clay substrate it had turned to dead . Why its healthy in sponge pot not in substrate
