They come in the emersed form, healthy, generous bundles. Plucked off all the lower leaves to encourage new growth, and buried the bare stem deep into the substrate. Doing well. Recommend.
A very generous healthy bunch of stems! I've had this plant in my aquarium for only about a week and it is already growing super fast! This is my second time ordering here and the plants are always super healthy and pest-free.
I've got these planted in my 225-gallon recently cycled tank with 4 dojo loaches and 7 small fancy goldfish. The goldfish did tear them up for a few days until I started supplementing boiled lettuce. Now they largely leave the foxtail alone and I can see a lot of new growth. I tried planting them in sand with root tabs to start, but saw a lot of die off within a few days (this could have been shock from transplanting.) I decided to replant in glass planter cups with Fluval Stratum and could see root growth coming out the bottom after just a couple of days. Now, three or four weeks later, they have roughly doubled in height. They are a bit patchy in places, but that is probably the goldfish's fault.
