This is a baby. I had a 3 footer and they use to come in that size from Dan
Q back in the day. It is an A. hastafolia BTW. They tend to shoot for the
surface and get quite large but do well as a potted plant indoors. I almost
cannot consider it an aquarium plant due to this. It makes for a good
immersed/emergent plant out of the back of your tank. The leaves do not
dried up easily. It's a tree essentially. Nice one though. A big light hog.
