I just got a C. ciliata from petsmart for $3.95. I have a question about the name. I have read that there are two varieties, one that is big an propagates by runner, and one that is small and does not propagate by long runners - new plants develop directly on the rhizome from dormant buds. It calls the second version C. latifolia var. latifolia. Is this correct? If so then I have C. latifolia var. latifolia.

Also, will it grow emmersed? Any special requirements I should know about?

TIA

I must have the same plant as you. I got it in a pot and it came apart into about 8-10 little plantlets. Humidity here in Corpus Christi, TX is usually super high, so I might gradually try to aclimate it to open air. Thanks for the info!
