I have never tried growing this plant before. I was pleasantly surprised with the size it came in. It already looks like a full grown plant in my 10gal. It came rubber banded in 2 bunches. They are cuttings, BTW. But from what I read on other sites about this plant, this is an acceptable method to propagate them, though not ideal. They have been in the tank ~1+ weeks and so far, they still look great. I have kept them in their rubber bands (looks as pictured). I wasn't aware that this plant can get big fast.. it is already making my tank look like a fully mature planted tank (I recently gutted and replanted a new tank). No wilted leaves so far and I can see them "make pearls", so despite them being cuttings, they are doing just fine in the tank.
THIS MAY BE ONE OF MY FAVORITES
These plants came in HUGE!!! They were very tall which can be nice if that's what you're going for but definitely needed a good trimming to be more full and compact. These stems were cuttings and didn't have any roots which I was not expecting. Propagating can be hard for your plant but i've had these in my tank for a week and they seem to be super happy and are pearling and already starting to show new growth after I trimmed them.
I was truly surprised at the quality of the Pinnatifida plants I received. I've ordered them elsewhere and the plants were puny and pathetic. MA's Pinnatifida came in large and robust, quite amazing plants, and completely unexpected. I will order these again!
Just green and beautiful
Came very healthy and is doing well so far
