Vesuvius

This plant typically come in to us in it's emersed form, which can be seen in the second picture. We try to convert it to its immersed form which is the first picture, although we cannot always convert them fast enough to keep up with demand. During conversion the old leaves will yellow and melt away while the new leaves emerge.

Came in great, packaged well and with four plants already in the single pot, planted three in my 20 gallon and gave one to my roommate, which is now in a 5.5 gallon shrimp tank. Grows great, but keeps seeming to uproot itself for seemingly no reason, which is a annoying, but it might just be that my apistogrammas really hate vesuvius for some reason. Either way, pretty solid purchase, as it's still not dead even after coming unrooted a a few times per plant.

Hardiest plant ever?

I can't believe this plant is still alive considering I did everything wrong, starting from ordering it in the height of summer (90 °F+), planting and uprooting it a ton of times in the space of a month, and having my mystery snails drop on it from the top of the tank every single day. Even after being beat up by all that, it barely went through any melting, regrew a ton of roots, and has been putting out new leaves.

I am more than impressed by the quality of the plants that I received. Within two days of being in my tank, the roots were taking off and the leaves were exploding. Given the amount of business these folks must do, I am amazed by the care taken in packing my plants. I've never seen each plant inside a moisture holding sleeve within a plastic bag. That has to have a massive effect on how well these have transitioned into my tank. Thanks everybody at Aquarium Co-op.

This came in really melted, yellow and see through. I had to cut off about half the leaves down to stem. After planting it completely died within a few days.
