Default PIPTOSPATHA - My New Muse

I've been growing this species from a tiny plantlet and took it out last night to separate and propagate it. The unique mottling and marbling is truly beautiful and makes it one of my favorite new aquatic plants.

Looks like Piptospatha ridleyi, but that's perhaps not the only P. species with a variegation like that.
Is it grown submerged, Jake? P. ridleyi is already in the aquarium plant trade for a long time, but its aquarium suitability is questioned. I remember an "Aqua Planta" article about that species long time ago where rather negative experiences are reported.
