Growing Plants in Water?

I have a couple of plants in vases, but the water seems to start smelling bad after a few weeks. What can I do or what should I put in the water to prevent this from happening?

Growing plants in water needs to be monitored and water to be changed, to clear :)

Water should be changed every few days.

The water usually has to be changed on a regular basis but several things can help prolong that time.

Filtered water helps keep water fresh longer and is much better for your plants as tap water usually has chlorine and salts that are not good for plants.

Grow your plants in dark or opaque containers as these help to keep down algae. Some people add a little charcoal to the water.

Occasionally remove plants and clean containers with a mild solution of bleach water.

Use a brush to clean the side and bottom.
Use clean cloths to gently wipe off the 'slime' from your plants before putting back in containers.

Here is a link that has some information about keeping nice smelling plants.
