Arrived in Great condition, light green in color and aprox. 10" in height. Has 2 thick grasslike blades that came off each onion...and wave nicely in the waters current. Nice "swim through" plant if you get multiples of this and looks really nice towards the back!
I love this plant, it is great for the background for many reasons: It is tall, which is important as I have a tall tank, It has 1" thick leaves which are very tough and hard to break, and finally it roots well and will not float around the tank. I like the color of the leaves, and they spiral just slightly making it a nice plant to look at in the aquarium. Like I mentioned in the title, i have had the leaves on this plant grow up to 28-30", and they were still growing when I trimmed them!
