Just ask Jen, she knows everything!

Greg, I agree, that's a beautiful plant. Will it also grow submersed?

Every time I've ever grown it submerged, it started looking really funky before too long. This one is certainly happier up out of the water from what I've seen.

The lower leaves melt when I grow this plant. The stem remains healthy though. My platties enjoy nibbling on the the melted leaves. It does grow very fast, and if you trim off the bottom and rebunch it, it looks very nice.

This piece has immersed and emersed growth on it. The parts that are underwater have different leaf shape and a redish hue to them.

This plant takes FOREVER to convert from emmersed to submerged. I was given 5 emmersed stems as a gift. Only 1 survived the conversion. This was 8 months ago. I now have 7 stems of BEAUTIFUL mermaid weed. I will have to take picture this plant is STUNNING. Low nitrates makes this plant a STRIKING redish orange.

Peace,
Ry

Ry, you sure you don't have Proserpinaca palustris?

That's a gorgeous plant any way you cut it, I love the sawtooth leaves. The emersed growth does kinda look like parrots feather.

you are correct. Similiar saw like structure. I have Proserpinaca palustris, and it kicks tush.
