A beautiful bulb that develops with lovely brown/red leaves. These will reach to the surface of your aquarium making them particularly useful for tall aquariums.

The leaves can become quite large and offer excellent protection from the light for fish such as discus.

This plant is unlikely to cause much difficulty in the aquarium as it grows is a wide range of water conditions. It can survive in warm water (up to 30 degrees) and is ideal for a discus tank.

I've had this bulb for a week or so now. 2 strong roots of about an inch long have appeared in this time! Can't wait to see the leaves. I had to remove the little bulb from my tank as my corydoras having been doing rather a lot of excavating around it! It's now in a tub of water in a terracotta pot with tropica substrate & sand, on my windowsill. Will return to tank once rooted in soil & leaves emerging...

Got this for my betta sorority tank, looked good on the photos. When it arrived it was just as ordered, after a couple of days it sprouted a tiny leaf and hasn’t stopped growing since. It’s a fast grower and already puts on an amazing display, the small leaf is now 3 inches with red and green stripes and it has thirty or so smaller red leaves in about 6 weeks. The bettas love to spend time resting on the leaves, and I think had I known how good it was I would have brought 3or4 of them and nothing else in the tank.

Well packaged and speedy delivery. Bulb has some small leaves, it’s just planted so let’s see how it goes. Looks very healthy so fingers crossed. Thank you

As always arrived quickly and very nicely packed. The bulb after dropping it in the tank had leaves sprouting within a week, and new beautiful red leaves emerging every couple of days since then. Looks beautiful but I do have to trim the large stalks so as to keep the leaves under water and stop them from reaching the surface.

It is difficult to comment properly on this one as from experience, I know it can take a bit of time to grow but once it takes off, its very rapid. Mine had 1 tiny shoot but it got eaten. The bulb looked in healthy condition with at least 1 node
