I don't think any roots made it down into the HOB the second time around.
The newest leaves are all larger than my hand, about 8"L x 6"W. I would say that this plant is still a juvenile on the edge of being a sub-adult. I had been thinking about cutting it into several pieces and repotting them in a hanging pot outside. I have pretty much decided to let it grow as I'd like to see how close to a full grown adult I can get it! Adult to fully grown leaves/blades range from 18" to 30" long.
Since the addition of more light the variegation has become more pronounced.
Wow thats a long plant! I didn't know their leaves could get that monstrous (adult size)!
After seeing yours and a few other lovely riparium/planted hob setups I really want to slap some plants in mine! I have ugly blue foam covering the spill ways since my tank currently has a betta who doesn't want to stay at the calm end sooo want to cover that. I've been trying to find some undemanding plants I can stuff in the HOB that I don't have to worry about misting/keeping high humidty for BUT stay a manageable size.. though I guess trimming is an easy way to keep them from getting too huge.
Thinking of looking for pothos, aluminum plant, the.. whats it called..*googles* tradescantia zebrine and, maybe maidenhair fern (not sure if I can let this ones leaves just float on the surface, or only over the side of the filter box/tank) to slap into my 2 HOBs on the 20g.
Also wanted to ask: Is that cardamine lyrata growing out of the water and very compact/tiny light leaves under the aluminum plant?
