Can a bamboo plant and an Apple Snail coexist? Answered

I'm thinking about putting one of my extra Bamboo plants in my Apple Snail's aquarium, any thoughts? My main concern is fertilizer on the roots being harmful to the snail. Would rinsing off the roots be enough?

I'd like to say that the snail has not bothered the bamboo plant and they both are doing well.

I'd be more concerned about the snail eating the plant.

Try feeding a leaf to your snail first - if it eats the leaf, the whole plant will also be eaten, except for hard stalks.
