Amazing Plant
I received four of these in an order awhile back. It's been about a year and they are still doing great. They have even reproduced on their own. I have about 8-10 now. They are one of my favorite plants in my whole tank. I am very happy with this plant.

Doesn't like deep water, I guess
First things first- these plants arrived in excellent condition! They were over a foot tall with firm bulbs and healthy roots. I bought these to be a straight linear-type feature in my 60 gallon tank. But within a week, they were yellowing at the ends, melting, and shedding leaves. I read up on this plant, and found they are usually in shallow water or water's edge/boggy conditions. Well, I reckon two foot deep water doesn't qualify as shallow-water conditions, especially in a low-tech tank like mine. (No industrial strength lights or CO2 system to make up for it.) So, I put them in my 5.5 gallon betta and froggies tank (where the tops of the leaves came out of the water) and they took off! All the leaves are still stiff and sturdy, and the leaves poking up keep growing. There is even a flower stalk coming up! (squeeeee!) I can't wait for it to bloom!

The onion plants I received are gorgeous - several small bulbs each with healthy leaves and roots and really tall! Very green and healthy. I would order this again!
