Comments: This is a premium quality Live Plant Bulb that can be hard to find, but we have a big selection of Premium Live Plants on our website to choose from.
The bulb in the picture, just above, has begun to sprout with a few leaves, but most of the bulbs we ship are just bulbs that have not sprouted. But put them in your aquarium and they will soon sprout.
Origin: Originally this plant species was discovered in areas of Africa and Southeast Asia.
But this plant was raised on a famous aquarium plant farm, and now it's found growing in aquariums all over the world.
Maximum Size: The maximum size for this plant is more than 24" tall.
If it blossoms, this plant will die-back. But you can avoid this die-back by trimming off the stalk, before it blossoms.
Generally we don't recommend temperatures above 80-degrees F. in aquariums, because the oxygen level begins to drop rapidly above 80-degrees, and this is not good for most fish.
However this plant seems to tolerate temperatures above 80-degrees F.
On the other hand I've seen this plant doing very well in an aquarium with 100% RO-water, which probably has a pH of 6 to 6.5 and almost no hardness.
On the other hand it can be trimmed back to fit a shallower aquarium or allowed to grow to be very large.
But plants usually do better without a Bio-Wheel Filter, because Bio-Wheels quickly remove CO2 from the water, and plants need CO2.
The addition of Lava Rocks will keep nitrates in the ideal range for fish, which is not too low for plants.

It's appearance also seems to vary with the intensity of the aquarium lighting.
