So when I trim my plants or take them out instead of throwing them out should I put them in a bucket with water I do have a light but it’s like a yellow desk top light.

It depends like on what plants and you may want to get some liquid fert since there will be no fish poo

Instead of ferts could I use fish food and I’ll probably put Java moss Java fern wisteria horn wort and the light will just be a yellow desktop light

buckets about 10 litres I’ll get a pick in a seck and do you think just a desktop light will be fine or will direct sunlight be better

I mean if you can do both I would I would start by using the desktop light if they die I would put next to sunlight and just have the light on when you wake up to when you go to bed while keeping it on during the daytime

I would plant them I mean it depends on the plant some can float and be planted like hornwort but I would plant them just to be safe
