I have them and they are very hardy. They go crazy in harder water, but do fine in softer water too.

In the D.C., Maryland, or NOVA area? Come check out The Greater Washington Aquatic Plants Association! www.gwapa.org

I'd venture to say that they even breed faster than cherries do.

LOL Oh they will! I'm guessing perhaps when they first were imported they had problems, however with some breeding in this country, they've adapted very very well!
