Re: Cellophane sword

It shoots leaves all over. It's not small. It looks like they did not give
the plant enough food or light in the pic in Teepot's book. Mine got over a
foot in about 3 weeks. The leaves do look very interesting but you need a 60
gallon or larger for this plant. Floating and emmersed leaves are cordate
(heart) shaped. Submerse are a little like A. ulvaceus with veins and more
It's not small. It's a bit like Otellia a. is some respects, fragile softer
stems. It's almost never offered in the trade.

I dropped one off at Albany Aquarium in CA, perhaps it's still there. It's
about 18-20 inches or so.
