Water Wisteria floating?

How long can I leave wisteria floating. I will be starting 2 new tanks in about a month for my kids. My tank is loaded with wisteria that I have been cutting regularly. I have just been floating it because I am going to transfer it to the new tanks. I know they are heavy root feeders so I was wondering how long I can just float them?

You can float them a long time so I wouldn't worry.

Sounds good! Now I just have to make sure they don't block out all of the light.

If you like, you can carefully pull a few leaves off water wisteria and let them float. They will grow roots and eventually make brand new plants entirely. If you do, peel the leaf off with care, you need the bit that's attached to the stem to generate roots.
