What a great plant, grows very aggressively and is very versatile. Great as a floating plant for fry to hide in and eat infusoria on, can also be attached to drift wood for the wabi-sabi sort of look. It's one of those plants that you nearly have to try to kill. Adapts to almost any tank condition. Try to stay away from fish that love plants however. The leaves are quite tender. I like adding Java moss, fern and a variety of plants to pieces of drift wood. After it starts to grow and root it looks excellent. This plant is very easy to place in little crevices and holes. If you want to spread pieces across the drift wood use some non-dyed string for sewing.
