ranges of color-mixture of reds/browns/light green-yellow
trimming-trim it anywhere plant the trimming, the bottom will grow out many more spurts

Its definitely a high light plant, mine has been unhappy where I have it in my tank and the color isn't as great as it should be. I'm adding another light though soon.

A pretty and inexpensive stem plant that lasts for awhile in my low tech planted plus tank. I trim it down and buy more when it's scraggly. It can be irritating because when the bottom leaves drop off they are very fine and are kind of messy.
