Rotala indica

I just got some rotala indica but i received it in its emersed form. Does anyone know how long it takes it to convert to its submerged form?

depends on the conditions in your tank lights ferts etc higher light co2 and nutrients the faster it will grow and the quicker it will recover

I've got T5HO 2x39W on my 30 gal. pressurized CO2 at about a bubble and a half per sec, and using Flourish Excel daily and Flourish about every 2 days. I'm hoping it converts fairly quickly because the emersed form is not exactly the look I was going for.

Okay. Thanks. That's comforting. I didn't realize that is had 2 forms until i got it and it looked nothing like i expected. Thanks a lot for the input. I couldn't find any information about it online anywhere.
