Thanks, I've definitely learned my lesson when it comes to the tubes. I miss those live plants tanks the big chains used to have. I might try potting it, even though my cats would probably have a field day with it. I appreciate the timely responses. :flick:
I'm almost positive it is a white ribbon plant from PetSmart. Only cuz I work there and know we sell them and its absolutely stupid that we do. Once this plant has been under water for a good amount of time it loses its white ribbon look on the leaves and they just appear green. Either way its a bog plant and won't last too long in your tank. I had about 4 of them in a tank of mine several months back (by accident) and they rarely sprouted a new leave and occasionally some leaves melted.
So I'd ditch it if you can, sell it to someone that has a terrarium or vivarium of some sort, cuz it'll be more harmful in the long-run than helpful
If it's a 'white ribbon plant', I believe it is a variegated form of Dracaena Sanderiana, otherwise known as Lucky Bamboo. They can grow with their roots in water, but their leaves need to be in the air. Still, great houseplant, pretty undemanding.
