That maybe normal since it did go from emersed to submersed, hopefully, it will grow new leaves.

micheljq Interesting, I wonder if I can find this plant where I live in Canada. Keep us updated on the results. I would like a plant which grows out of my tank.

Plants from emmersed to submerged

So I found a lot of Gymnocornis spilathoides emmersed in our backyard. I know it is one serious weed, but I like the light green leaves of it when submerged. So I clipped one stem and dump it in my tank. How long will it take to adjust? Its been 1 week there and I can see some small root growth, other than that no improvement.
