I saw this plant at Petco in the plastic tubes with the jell on the roots. It's got green leaves and long slender reddish stalks looked like it would be pretty. I don't know a thing (yet) about plants, I've always had artificial stuff. But with the High Powered LEDS Out there now I am running a planted display tank. Question, how much trouble Is the "Compacta" plant? As usual nobody at the store knew anything about them. Any thoughts ? Right now I have Wisteria, Java Vern's and another fern that they called something else,,,(but I think it's just another type of Java fern, it has red stalks also but fern type leaves.) All are doing well.
