    Very pretty plant

    Came as a bulb with a few leaves. All the leaves melted once introduced to my tank. New leaves grew quickly from the bulb. Adding iron turned the leaves redder. I wasn't sure on how to plant the bulb, but i left it semi submerged from the substrate and it seems to be doing well this way. Leaves seem to melt easily to any new changes.

    Still waiting on my replacement...

    Posted by Natalie Kurth on May 4th 2014

    I bought one of these plants back in March and was shipped a bulb that had no growth on it and smelled slightly rotten. I was assured the plant would grow and gave it a full month. Nothing. I was supposed to have a replacement shipped last month and still never received it. When emailing them I'm simply told to call despite having all necessary information within the email. When I do call, whoever I'm supposed to talk to is conveniently out at the time. My experience with this company has been great until now.
