I received these about 3 1/2 weeks ago from an online source. They looked good on the photo and were described as true aquatics. When I first saw them I thought the leaves looked awfully terrestrial but, I thought the suppliers must know better than me. Well, after 3 1/2 weeks they started falling apart and the leaves that remained looked as though they were melting away. I did some more research and found that they are really bog plants. Could I have received cuttings from the emerged part of the plants ? Could the remaining "trunks" sprout aquatic leaves ?

Yes, to quick-answer your two questions. You will find a fuller explanation in our profile of this species, click the shaded name, Hygrophila corymbosa.
