    Beautiful Plant and Very Hardy

    Posted by Benjamin Underwood on Mar 11th 2013

    This is one of my favorite aquarium plants. It grows well (once rooted) in less than favorable environments. This grew in one of my tanks with low lighting, High pH (8.6), and no CO2 injection. But it took over a year to root and it looked terrible until then. Now I have a beautiful grove of ribbon like plants that sway in the currents of my aquarium. I really wish that I could have received some rooted starts with my order because I would have more of this stuff if that were the case.

    Fragile at first, but great recovery

    Posted by M. Young on May 31st 2011

    When I first received this plant, it appeared bushy but delicate, i.e., as if it shed leaves very easily. I wrapped a flat metal plant weight around the main stem and included as many of the loose leaves as possible, planted it with a Flourish tablet and added some iron. Within a week, the plant was flourishing -- thank goodness stem plants recover so well.

    I am very pleased with these plants. They look very unique, and add so much depth to your aquarium. My fish love these.
