This plant profile should be removed, or the details in the info section should all be changed to "N/A" and the position should read "non-aquatic plant". It's not only chain stores that dupe customers into buying this blight on the hobby (and numerous other non or semi-aquatic plants). My nearest LFS owner tried to tell me it was fully aquatic and when I flatly stated that it's not he tried to say it's semi-aquatic and just needs removed from the tank periodically. Don't buy this plant!!
I bought this plant knowing it wasn't aquatic. But to fill the space till I found something else I wanted to put there. After time I eventually found nothing and just left it. Hoping that it would rot away and force me to make a decision on what to replace it with. Its been in that tanks for 3 years now. It hasn't gotten much bigger. Maybe another 3 inches. But it is doing really well. Plus my cories like sitting on it. I found out that my mother had been buying and replacing it when it started to go. So.. ya..
