I continue to be amazed by this advice. I've had this plant for over 10
years and not once have I removed it from the tank nor cut the bloom.
Yes, it has gone dormant where the leaves seem to stop growing, but it
perks right back to life and continues to thrive despite all the
recommendations. A few months ago, it produced two blooms. It's doing
quite well in high pH (>7 well water), water temperature 70F - 78F
I attribute the plant's success to frequent water changes and seasonal
temperature changes, meaning I don't closely regulate the water
temperature to keep it constant during the winter months.
I can only wonder...maybe I am successful because I don't remove it from
