Don't take your LFS word on most things. Find out first if they know what they are talking about. Listen in to them give advice when they are talking to other customers. May just be one person is not quiet as knowledgable as some others, but maybe in time. Hopefully they work with their people and at least get them the basic knowledge.

I would love to hear what they say when you tell them it's not a true aquatic plant.

I think it will live for awhile. I always liked the look of it as i see it in petsmart type places, too bad it wont grow underwater long.

I can't believe it :oops: Thanks for telling me that before it polluted my tank. I'll take it back today and see what they say.

Oh well, it was only $3.50.

I'll have to be more careful with buying plants from now on.

I believe it is a chain store. It is named "Pet Supplies Plus". Do most of the chain store buy plants like those and sell them for cheap prices? The plant looked healthy when i bought it.

Well doesn't that suck! I just got a bunch of a really neat A. ficoidea strain..:( Oh well, it'll look nice in my front yard. :)
I've always wondered how these strains of hedges and mondo grass would do growing emmersed. Maybe try to pop bottle em to keep em alive.

i tried searching the net and came up with Alternanthera bettzickiana as the scientific name for green hedge. This a different plant?

Green hedge was the first plant i bought for my tank. It died in a few weeks. Sad thing is it was tagged with one of those white plastic stakes that has a picture of the plant, it's name and light requirement. It also said "Aquatic Plant" Aquatic my ass =/

PSP is a franchise. So you may or may not find some different stuff there. I have found them to be an excellent local source of Malaysian driftwood, and as far as the chains go they do seem to have a much better selection of fish supplies (including frozen foods.) No eco-complete though :-s . My local one, however (just down the road a couple of miles actually) doesn't have a very good assortment of fish (although the tanks are always pristine,) and I don't think I've ever seen any plants there at all beyond maybe some anacharis. This might change as they're moving a couple of doors down from their present spot into a location twice the size.

<edit>Oh, good grief, I just looked this stuff up. Joseph's Coat??? They're selling Joseph's Coat as an aquatic plant??? Gah, some people ...
