Began melting in transit. The ones which were in better shape i gave away but none of the hobbyists were able to salvage it. I had a replcaement sent but this also suffered compaction in transit. This is not a plant which endures transition between emersion and submersion as it is prone to melting. Best to get this local and submerged. Frank's selling tissue cultures so these likely will be easier to ship as he is also in the states. This plant commands a high price for a variety of reasons...

I got it to grow but then I did a big redo on my tank and forgot that I had it in there. So, the result is, I got 1 leaf left. LOLOL.

Going to by some online and see what happen.



Please forgive me for my grammar mistakes!

It is okay with me. Mine start growing after a day but I redo the tank and forgot to take it out. LOL so it is gone now. I got like 1 leaf left in one of the tank.
