    I purchased this for my wife's aquarium. Boy howdy was I surprised during unpacking . That BIG beautiful plant dwarfs that 5 gallon tank. All I could do is laugh. You might want to say in the description that is plant is not recommended for aquarium less than 75 gallons. Only negative thing I have to say is one of the bulbs on the plant has a 1/4" deep and 2" long scrap. I am hope to see a long life for the monster plant.

    Lush! Best suited for a pond or large, open-top aquarium.

    I ordered this plant for my turtle tank and they absolutely love it! I grow them in another tank and switch a few to the turtle tank for them to feed off of every now and then. The plants were in really great shape when they arrived. I will be ordering more plants from here in the future!!!

    Plants came packed well, root systems intact and healthy. I even got an extra little baby one. Gorgeous little plants for a pond or a well lit aquarium with no top (which is what I'm going to be doing, after a few days already they are doing great)

    I really like this plant. Even though there were only three plants, there were plenty of small shoots with roots.
