I love this plant. Admittedly I ordered one, and I tore it apart! They sent me long beautiful roots, so I separated this plant up. All 4 of the plants that I separated it into are thriving and doing beautiful! I was really surprised at how much I got for what I paid. I only tried clipping one, and surprisingly the one I clipped did the worst, but still lived just took longer to get going. The ones I separated and planted all did well nearly immediately. None of them melted at all, which leads me to believe they may have been grown underwater which is a huge plus, but my new growth is a little darker which makes me think that they may have been grown in air with really great care takers who just know what they're doing, and do it well... either way they are beautiful plants. They're crinkling nicely which is my favorite aspect of the spiralis I think it adds texture and fun lines to the look of my tank.
