Growth Rate: Average
Lighting: Medium to Very High
Propagation: Plant sends out bulbs which produce plants
Origin: India; probably also Burma, Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia
Colour: Light Green
Additional Information: The bulb at the bottom will produce roots once planted and can be planted quite close to each other as they don’t take up a lot of room at the base of the plant however this plant grows extremely tall. Expect a canopy of leaves to form on top of the water. Pruning is easy however if you want to keep them shorter. Once the plant is established, just pull on the stalk of the leaf and it will pop out from the base of the plant. No scissors required. Woohoo!
N.B. This plant may or may not contain harmless non-plant eating aquatic snails (if you do not wish to keep aquatic snails in your aquarium please refer to our plant dip section under the FAQ and inspect your plants thoroughly for clear gel like snail eggs).
