I bought a sample pack of different plants from someone off of the SnS section which came with one stem of this about 1 1/2 months ago. it now has AMAZING roots and 3 smaller stems which are about 2-3 inches long each. I have a 55gal tank with shop lights and eco complete/inert gravel as my substrate with no co2 or dosing. Just started seachem comprehensive so I hope it makes a difference.
This is a plant that reminds me of green bamboo, it has a segmented stem that is very strong and wide green leaves the can be very long. One this plant is established it can grow med to fast in a high tech tank but it does respond well to trimming and the tops can be replanted if needed. IMO this plant needs a big and tall tank, it has reached 30 inches in my tank in less than a month, it also greens nicely with Fe added.
I am new to fish tanks in general and this is one of the plants in both my 25 gallon and my 8 gallon. It is growing and spreading faster than any of my other plants, except the water sprite, but remains a mid ground plant in my 25 gallon. I love the shade of green and how it moves, very beautiful. Planted in flourite and given a small amount of ferts daily.
