I love this plant! At first, I thought I had killed it but then one of the other members on here told me that this plant is a potassium hog. I started dosing potassium and it bounced back as if nothing had happened. Great plant, love the light, almost lime green color it adds to my tank. Dose the potassium, don't skimp and you will be well rewarded.

i love this plant. i have it in two tanks. the first tank i have it in sand, with high light and it does okay, but feed it root tabs and it explodes. i took one of my plants and carefully seperated stems from the main plant and replanted them all in a 20Long in eco-complete, and they are growing but they need more nutrients. the leaves are begining to show red. a friend of mine had one of these grow to over 2ft tall.

This plant is very easy to take care of as long as you dose ample amounts of POTASSIUM, if not the leaves will get pinholes, it is a huge potassium hog. For very dense growth and very fast propagation-from side shoots, you will want high lighting, Co2 and a mineralized substrate, of course.
