Well when we did our group buy this is what I assumed I would do. However I did not realize how thin that culture gel is. Basically the plants get so beat up they end up arriving looking like a moss ball. I do wonder however why they don't farm this plant over there. As I would assume they would have far better luck then we do considering they have nice healthy plants to work with.
No pictures for now I have three new leaves total since going submerged though and the roots are really taking off. I can confirm that the new leaves are all a nice bright pink/purple though. I was a bit worried at first as my growth out of the water was very green with only a pink tinge to the outside of the leaves.
