Description: Unique sword plant with spiral leaves
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.

Plants arrived quickly and in decent shape. Their were some yellow/brown above water growth that needed trimmed off. The below water growth looked great with the exception of one leaf on one of the two plants I purchased. Their has been no die off over the almost two weeks the two plants have been in the tank.
Have been super interested in vesuvius after finding out about it since I don't love typical aquarium plants and was pleasantly surprised to receive this very green beauty. The plant was half converted with runners growing and a little under half of the leaves already in the submersed form. The roots were going just a little bit and the emersed leaves were a tiny bit melty probably due to conversion. Can't wait to have this grow out as my nano tank background
