Their called weeds in Marin, CA. Everywhere. In sewers, ditches in urban
areas. Out in open space reserves, ponds. They have a season of sorts and
die back during the winter but are coming back about now and will be in full
bloom in about 2-3 months. What am I going to do with a plants like that?
Darn thing gets 3+ft tall and then has a floral stalk another 3+ft long.
Just won't fit in a 20 gallon tank. They get too big for a 135 really. Even
the red horemanii swords got to big for a 135. You'd have a hard time trying
to run through a thicket. Maybe a machete would be a good pruning tool.
