See I was always told it will last for "awhile" under water then rot. No clue how long "awhile" is?? LoL was also told it could survive if the leaves were out of water. Soo maybe you have a different species in that family or maybe I was told wrong??

I'm with y'all - this was my first plant :) My book says 3 months, but looks like sometimes it can work longer! Pretty cool, A13! Mine was in a vase for about a year, but I have used this plant in a QT tank since then. Didn't have enough plants to make it feel cozy, so I figured to drop it in. Left it in after the fish was in the main tank, just to see - and sure enough, it started looking funky after a few months. So now it's in a pot, lol. Don't know if it would have bounced back if I had left it under for longer. Might have to try that out!

Well I can't see after 1 whole year of a plant doing very well that it will ever change. It does just seem really particular about switching aquariums. S to be clear..I have 2 of those. both were together since early last summer then I moved 1 plant to my 75 this May and it took about 1 month to bounce back from the tank change but the other one is perfectly healthy and grows roots very well but does not grow taller from best I can tell. No issues at all with that one. Perhaps they were planted in the beginning under water and this is why it's doing well..honestly I expected it to fail though. Maybe it will at 2yrs?? lol

:D We should all band together and do that, I think almost everyone on this forum has been taken in by that plant in the beginning!
