Hygrophila coryambosa siamensis

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.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
