NJPets here in NJ sold me this plant awhile ago.
I really like its looks, so was bummed as it slowly
dawned on me that it probably wasn't aquatic. I
guess I could have brought it back, but I took it
as a lesson in doing research, and it actually 
inspired me to get serious about growing plants
of just throwing any old pretty plant at the store 
into the tank.

I actually still have this in my tank, it's held on
for several months now. Should I go ahead and rip it
out, or just let it fade away?
