The only thing I dont like about it is the large roots it grows get attached to the lava rock underneath the substrate and pulls it to the surface.
Thanks H8. Good to know how often the trims are occurring, I thought you had reached the holy grail of planted tanks, beautiful plants that grew slow without having to trim! I had the same issues, fast large root growth that would bring up a lot of substrate when pulled. But it's one of my favorites also, a beautiful plant, and yours are perfect, great job!
