I got a small 2" cutting of this plant with some shrimp I bout it came along free . I now have this stuff growing like a weed in my tank. It just took off in my light light tanks. It is a messy looking plants sending out roots when floated. It's fast growing and very easy. I love to have it floating my my betta breeding tanks. This stuff grows in any condition I had it goring fine in a plastic bag. A true handy weed.
