Dracaena. It's not aquatic and will die if kept underwater.

Looks like a chain store plant that I bought in a "snail free" tube a few years back before I knew any better.

Darn thing rotted and foulded up the whole tank :frustrated:

White ribbon plant (Dracaena Sanderiana). Yep not aquatic. The roots can be in water but the leaves have to be out of the water or it willl die. This plant got me when I first started out.

Agreed it's not fully aquatic. My fish store told me when I bought 2 of them. However..I decided to get it for fun to see what would happen . That was about 1yr ago. I took one out of it's tank and moved it to my 75g and half of it died off but then it grew back...and the other one is doing VERY well in my 20g with my corydoras and "bettadora". It seems to like root tabs and is a very slow grower but nice to see it can work.

I got played
That darn chick played me as a fool at pet land for 2 bucks (lol).I had a gut feeling about this plant just the way the leaves felt so tuff but took a gambling on it anyway .Well ,i just put it a vase half filled with water.

BackInAction don't feel bad it has happened to the best of us. Like I said I bought some along with Mondo grass which they said at the store was aquatic. There was also another one I can't remember now.

It's funny though. I was suspicious..Glad the store was honest to me..but I looked around my house yesterday and have 3 mixed potted plants that all have those in them. Not even in water just in dirt.. been there for 5yrs hahha. but at least my experiment worked...they sometimes can survive underwater.

Are any of the leaved out of water??

Agent13 07-29-2013 02:55 PM

nope. been like that for 1 yr. Totally in the water. The one I moved to my 75 in may have a rough transition but it is fine now. Then the ones in my pots are in NO water lol. I just water those ones once a week
