This plant has been grown emersed so the leaves are very compact looking (see gallery image of emersed form) and will take on their submersed form once put into the aquarium in a few weeks time. The leaves will change shape dramatically and the plant will not be recognisable!
Great for aquariums and ponds. For those of you with ponds: Pot this one and place it in a semi-shallow area near the edge and let it creep along the surface of the water and around the edges. If your pond is dirted then plant near the edge in the shallow areas.
-Pond Potting instructions: Line a plastic mesh pond pot with high-flow weed matting (available at Bunnings in a grey roll), fill with Daltons Aquatic Mix and then cap with a fine washed pebble to stop the aquatic mix from escaping the pot. Remove bottom 3cm or so of leaves from your stems and plant them about 1-3 inches apart. THEN lower the pot into your pond very slowly to avoid making a mess.
