Mando grass, not a true aquatic plant. It will eventually die off. I have posted question on this plant I got the wrong version of Echinodorus tennelus. The one i have is the broad leaf version(stays green), I was looking for the Echinodorus tennelus that turns a reddish color under high light.
If you want the broad leaf version of this plant let me know $8 shipped priority
I was thinking thats what it might be. I ordered plants from a company called aquadise on ebay all plants but these and some java moss arrived dead. I made a stink and they gave me a full refund. But I would rather have plants.
lots of people have looked at this. is everyone in agreement that this is in fact mondo grass? I received this from an active user on this forum. if its not Echinodorus tennelus I feel that I should let people know. so no one else gets burned
When I was first starting my 29g tank i made a mistake and went to Petco to look at some plants and ended up buying some mando grass thinking it was aquatic. So I planted it into my tank and let it 'grow' for about a month then I did some rearranging and pulled the plant to find that the roots didn't root or grasp any of my substrate and the roots were actually turning brown and rotting. I'd pitch it if it is mando grass. I can't really tell in the picture but I have e. tennelus and they do look similar.
