Annoyed Originally. September 8, 2012
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Florida  
Annoyed originally... Figured there would be multiple plants in one pot. There was only one. Pleasantly surprised this thing threw off runners within the first two weeks and I have already started 6 new plants from the main one after only a month. Beautiful plant! Very nice size pot despite my selfishness in wanting more then one plant in the pot!

Small on Arrival but Growing August 22, 2012
Reviewer: Ross from Houston, TX United States  
The plants I received were quite small, but are already sending out a couple of runners and sprouting new leaves.  I suspect it will not take long for this plant to grow and fill a corner and side of my tank as I want it too.  The leaves were too short to be curly as in the photos, but the new leaves have the disticnt curl.

Verrrrrry Interrrrresting! June 28, 2011
Reviewer: Huw Powell from Lee, NH United States  
Received one of these about 2 weeks ago with my third order from this great operation.  Although AP.com apologize for the "price due to rarity", it's in line with, say, most Anubias species.

I got a tight bunch of leaves about 4" tall with a bunch of roots.

Within days it sent out a runner, which is now hard to diagram in text - it's about 3" long to the next node, and sent out another "forward" and two more at 90 degrees.  And another forward.  And one of the sideways ones is trying to colonize my Crypt. balansae zone.  It is growing new leaves that are 6-8" tall.  

I suspect that in a year it will have taken over my entire tank.  75 g with 6x28w t5 lighting, AP.com fertilizer pellets, no "real" co2 but I've been using co2booster lately.

Executive summary: a wonderful healthy plant that seems to want to propagate insanely just as advertised.

June 28 update:  limited to 1000 ch.  12" leaves check.  Not 'runners' but side stalks like other swords.

Awesome Plant June 22, 2011
Reviewer: Charles Knutson from Topeka, KS United States  
Ships great. I bought 3 and within the first week they all had lots of growth and runners. I now have 7 baby plants that I have cut loose and replanted; they are growing fast. They do need a good flow to keep algae and detritus from collecting in their leaves.

Nice Plant!!! May 3, 2011
Reviewer: Timothy Haut from Churchton, MD United States  
I just recieved this plant potted, it was wrapped very well and the plant had a good root system, the foliage was about 4 inches tall and bright green. This plant is in a high light tank w/o CO2 and only gets ferts once a week, I will let you know if any problems arise. So far this plant is holding it's own and still bright green in a tight twist of floiage, right now a Kuhli Loach has intertwined itself with the plant, although it looks happy it appears to be a slow grower and I may try root tabs if no growth is recorded but it has only been a week.
