Good luck. bob
It ain't deep! (Friggin frackin Keyholes!) I was so excited to find this plant and because nobody at the store had any idea what it was or how much to charge I ended up getting it for $5.99! During the discussion (3 employees involved) I pointed out a sign on another tank which said $15.99 - and was what I had expected to pay. So, okay - good CAN come from less than knowledgeable employees at the LFS...
Bob, how long has it been since you got yours? I am just trying to get an idea how long it will take the bouncing bulb to grow a fresh plant! The color is gorgeous and I think it will make a really nice transition point between the brown of my driftwood to the green stems behind...
