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 ?
