This stunning plant forms reddish green leaves atop thick green stems, with one leaf per stem. It grows from a bulb and develops an enormous root system. When young, it will form many fully submersed leaves. In time, it will send out longer shoots which, upon finding the surface, let out large, beautiful leaves that hang at the water’s surface. Once the first leaf has found the water level, the plant will continue to put up many floating leaves.
This plant makes a terrific focal point in any aquarium.
