Now that,that's mentioned,over here in Singapore,where the water's pretty
much soft..no wonder i've never seen any successful cultivation of
Lilliaeopsis. After planting (emersed),they would just lie there,not really
growing and not dying either..only to be infected by algae at some later
point until ,at the end,i would just "tear" out the whole carpet i'd
planted initially! :-P

I've seen lush carpets of it growing in the nature reserve here though. But
that's in submersed form.
