    Good plant... if it sprouts

    I ordered this and received 3 bulbs. Unfortunately, only one of them sprouted. The other 2 turned fuzzy and had to be thrown out.

    Great Big Plant

    Posted by Timothy Haut on Jul 11th 2011

    I've had this plant in a 30 inch tall tank for 6 years or better, it is nice that the leaves grow almost to the surface without taking up a lot of room in the tank like a large Sword would, they will flower a couple of times a year on a long thin stem that can be 5 to 6 feet long, it's a nice center piece plant and easy to grow.

    Great Plant!

    I received this plant as a bulb. After a few weeks in my tank it shot up over 12" tall! This plant has now been in my tank for a few months, and is doing great.
