As I am preparing to leap into the world of planted aquaria, I find myself stumped by this question. I notice lots of "bunched" plants (things like anacharis) are sold in 6-8 stem bunches--usually tied together with a rubberband or something of the sort.
When I actually plant them in my tank, do I plant the bunch all together like that? Or do I separate out each individual stem and plant them a half inch or inch apart from one another?
I know that's a very basic question, but...hey, I'm a newbie at this "live plants" stuff.
