Just starting out with plants in your aquarium, well this is the one for you. You can't kill this plant unless you really go out of your way to do it. This plant grows by having a horizontal rhizome and producing vertical leaves. When planting do not bury the rhizome in your substrate only the roots or attached to drift wood or rocks. Also the leaves on this plant my turn black and start disintegrating, this is normal leave the plant and within a few days to few weeks you'll see little baby plants coming out of the dying leaves. This is how the plant adjust and propragtes to new tank conditions.

Most plants are sold as trimmings from rooted plants unless otherwise stated. All trimmings will be at least 3" in height unless otherwise noted.
