Thanks!I've never had much success with them I have 2 kinds in my tank at the moment a red and a patterned green, both have tiny leaves on at substrate level but from what I know when the leaves reach the surface and the plant can get oxygen that way, the aquatic leaves all tend to go to the surface. I like that look though so if I get them coming through to the surface I'd be happy - though I'd like 4-5 stems I suppose so would need a bit of tactics.
In terms of planting them, I've since read some advice that says to place them on top of the sand or aquasoil and let it send out roots to pull its self into the substrate rather than trying to bury them from the start. Not sure if this works but the people that did that had good success? Same info for Crinums and other bulbs too.
On the surface of the substrate is sure where this thing seems to want to be.
Would I be correct in that the red spikes sprouting would be the roots? Actually I'm surprised it is doing anything at all this soon. It has only been in the tank about a day and a half.
Also thanks to
