Re: Bolbitis heudeloitii

10-4,  I had some once in a 84f discus tank and it withered away until I
moved it to my 76f tank.  Now it does OK.

Bolbitis is planted,as u've mentioned,like Java Fern. U can tie its rhyzome
(fishing line works!) to wood or rock. I don't know if coconut shells
work,as they might ROT underwater.

Bolbitis is very much a low light,low temperature plant,growing pretty
slowly,much like Anubias sp. (or java ferns) :-)
