I love this plant. It has a purple/red hue. I use it in my foreground. Ive purchased this plant twice. I will purchase it again.
I must purchase this again. Looks great!
Healthy and good size. Out all the plants that I put in my aquarium, this one melted to nothing and hasn't come back. Not the seller fault. The shock of different aquarium conditions can cause plants to melt.
Looks diferent then the picture

This lobelia grows wild where I live, I had no idea it could be aquatic.
I just received my first order from Modern Aquarium, and I couldn't be more pleased. All the plants are good sized and thriving.
Nice but small
Received two small stems. However, they were very nice looking with huge roots.
