Moderately easy bulb plant. Wide crinkled leaves. Impressive in tall tanks, as it can grow over 3 feet tall.

This is one plant in my tank that seems to be doing well under med/high light with co2 and ferts. It grows quickly and new leaves form weekly. Its great in the back corner of my 60g. Leaves easly reach the surface. The only problem I have is that the older leaves get holes and brown spots.

Grows well in the two low tech med light tanks I have it in, no issues at all, root tabs deepen the color. Cool looking plant, grows to the surface quickly and the ease of growing it makes it a desirable one.
