Example of why one should choose their plants wisely
Wanting a spot of color in my 55 gal bog terr, I picked up a "death row" AV from Lowes about a year ago. [Maybe it was 2 years?] Figured if the plant made it, it would give me a bit of color. If it died, no big loss. Well it didn't die. It has bloomed heavily several times and has apparently really enjoyed the terr. Too well, in fact. Unfortunately, it is now about a bit over a foot across. As such it is taking up WAY too much room [guessing about 1/2 the tank's floor space] and so in the spring must come out. Hopefully, I'll be able to find a nice trade for a miniAV or two.
