I ordered this lobelia based on the picture wine and after reading about it i found that it would usually stay purple when grown close to the surface of above water. The lobelia i received was a beautiful small clump with great roots and new growth and is still maintaining its lovely purple coloring!
I got so much of it! I love this plants it's beautiful. Looks exactly like the picture, quality is great. It's been 3 days, no signs of melting. I believe I find my new aquatic plant store! Very happy with my purchase, so much so I ordered some other plants from them just 2 days later.
Received very nice healthy portions, just as pictured. Plants are growing great without CO2. In just a couple weeks I'm seeing lots of new growth, will be very easy to propagate.
I ordered 2 plants about a week ago, they came in yesterday well packaged and in great condition. Willing to shop for more aquatic plants again.
So far so good! Keep in mind whoever purchases this, the purple will only stay if you keep it an emerged plant. Leaves will turn green submerged.
They all died within the first week.
