Ended up being a great plant February 8, 2010
Reviewer: Greggkm from Springfield, MO United States  
I had this temple for over 6 months, first few months it didnt do much, and some fish will eat it. However, if you at least plant some Flourish tabs under the gravel, and use liq fertilizer during water changes, and trace elements once a month. This plant is now almost to the top of the aquarium,and has spread out some. I have a tall 65 gal hex using standard 4bulb 18 inch lamps. 2 coralife 20,000k daylight  bulbs, and 2 GE aquarays 9500 k. The hornwort  is also doing fabulous now almost 3/4 to top of tank also.

Not the best of luck August 11, 2009
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Indiana, United States  
I got these as a bunch of 5 stems, most of them without roots.  In 2 weeks all but one has died.  It left a lot of dead leaves in the water that I picked out for 2 days before I finally pulled all of the plants but the one that is still alive.  I am sure that the one survivor is going to make it, but I was disappointed to lose the others.  All of the other plants that I have purchased are doing great.
