    Hi all!
    (new to fishlore, hope this is correct thread!)

    Anyway, i LOVE this plant but can find NO INFO on its name, genus, care reqs... NOTHING!

    Clearly Petco has no idea & MANY web searches have proven fruitless...

    ANYBODY with any idea what this could be - your input would be WAY appreciated!

    (it seems like some sort of great type first glance, has thick roots, waxy/plasticy thin spear like leaves, no clear rhizome & leaves r growing from the roots... also seems to grow in a semi-opposite leaf pattern)

    Pics included... many thanks & happy fishing!

    i agree,i think its mondo grass

    petstores sell it but its really a land plant and will rot in water

    oh,and welcome to Fishlore!
